We are going to be setup on one of the soccer fields and we are going to try and have some signs for directing people there. When coming in the main entrance it is on the right hand side and we should be the first soccer field (to be confirmed and updated). I have been asked about the soccer fields.. The soccer fields are being installed in the area the following week. We are on a flat floor of plastic interlocked tiles with no lips or bumps (ran my hand across it a couple times in various spots to make sure).

PLEASE NOTE: There is no admission fees for spectators to come and watch the races and spectators are more than welcome.

Please see updated post in regards to classes. We have added Euro Trucks as the demo class upon popular demand from the racers. The only upgrade allowed is the use of bearings otherwise this is to be BOX STOCK.

Looking forward to literally start the 2018/2019 onroad season at this new venue! I heard there is a lot of behind the scenes work to secure this venue and put on the race. I think it’s a great place at a recreation centre to showcase our hobby to the public and hopefully help the hobby get some new potential racers in Edmonton!

Plan on coming up Saturday morning with Walter and I’ll bring the fleet including Euro Truck!

Btw, tried using the Best Western corporate code to book a room but it’s not working. Could you look into this please?

Otherwise hope to see you all in 3 weeks!

I know last year we had issues with booking online with the code not resulting in a discount. Might be worth giving the hotel a call and seeing if they'll honour it. Some locations were also easier than others to work with.

And I think the key is to get as many local guys as possible to come out and support this race. Whatever reason you have that you can't make the race then that's cool. But if you seriously do this hobby cause it's fun, this is the perfect venue to showcase this hobby to the public on how much fun you can have even in a competitive environment with like minded people.

I've suggested to the Nascar exec maybe get an information table right at the entrance to the racing area where someone is manning the table with helium balloons or whatever to attract attention and brochures and such to hand out and garner interest. Chairs / sitting area to watch us race but I did hear the entire field is open to view on the second floor so there will definitely be a lot of eyes down on us watching this event. Maybe also get the local paper, radio, posters at the Millennium Place to promo the event before it happens etc.

Hope to see you out Colin,

Ivan

I have called the Best Western Plus next to Millenium Place to ask about the code being honored in this location. I will post when I hear back from the GM.

Thanks,
John
