    Default Badlands Motorsports Resort

    This is a project that I have been working on since 2005.

    We finally are getting to the stage where zoning approvals could be in place in the next 2-3 months and are now in the public domain.

    http://badlandsmotorsportsresort.com/

    Since our website came online earlier today, I have been inundated with emails from the motorsports community, which have been universally in favor but there have been some questions as to cost. This is discussed on the website and it is a point I want to make clear:

    Our mandate and founding principle has been to make the facilities available and affordable to all income demographics. This can be achieved by multiple programs that tailor the services to each individualís affordability. And by making it affordable to younger individuals and families, it ensures continuous growth of the sport.

    The way this is possible is via alternate revenue streams, so that we would not rely solely on track rentals and gate admissions.

    Please keep in mind that at this time we are only trying to sell the idea of the project to the local area residents and county and we are not at the stage where we are marketing this to the motorsports community.

    Thanks

    Dr. Jay Zelazo

    With regards to track safety, please read this:

    http://badlandsmotorsportsresort.com/faq.php#q10


    Having a safe track in the region was the reason this project began, well before there was any indication RCMP was to close.

    And safety would of course pertain to all vehicle that use the venue, including bikes.

    Welcome on the board Jay-Z

    Good luck with your business venture, sounds really great. (could be a family camp/sporting/outdoor type of thing)

    This looks like an awesome venture, something I think would not only be beneficial for the Rosebud area, but all of Southern AB. Good luck in the approvals process.
    On the site it mentioned the closing of Race City, what if Race City were to remain open, would this still be going ahead?

    This project sounds great! I wanted to get started with racing but when news hit of race city closing, it was going to be tough. Hopefully all goes well and you can start constructing! I'll be there for sure!

    Good luck!

    Before you go buying properties in Rosebud, keep in mind that we will be planning trackside condos that would range from studio apartments to 3 bedroom townhomes.

    Without purchasers for these units, it's unlikely the venue would be viable.

    I don't know anything about what it would take but is there a possibility of getting in with a company like RCI? Mostly so I can use points to stay there for free?
