    Default Badlands Motorsports Resort: First reading of re-zoning application approved

    Motorsports Enthusiasts:

    After many years of development, we are pleased to announce that the first reading of our re-zoning application in Kneehill County to obtain a Direct Control District to develop a comprehensive Motorsports Facility, was approved almost unanimously (6:1) by council on March 12th, 2013.

    The re-zoning application is to approve the development of a 4.4-mile multi-configuration Road Course, Paddock, Commercial Development, Non-motorsport Recreational Development, and Residential Development.

    This is a significant step towards a World-Class Motorsports facility becoming a reality in Southern Alberta; a facility which is designed to meet the needs of a wide range of motorsports enthusiasts throughout Western Canada.

    As many of you already know, this project has been in development since 2005. The process has taken longer than expected, but all issues have now been resolved.

    We still have to go through a second reading (Public Hearing), which is scheduled for June 11th, 2013. However, based on information provided to us by the Development Office of the Kneehill County, we are confident that all of the concerns raised by the area citizens have been addressed and we are very optimistic that we will obtain the final approvals in June 2013.
    Construction could start as soon as the Spring of 2014, with the track opening in 2015.

    We have thoroughly updated the FAQ section of our website to reflect the recent developments and we have included much more detailed information about the project, the planned amenities, and the operation of the Road Course.

    Please visit www.badlandsmotorsportsresort.com/faq.php for more information and for answers to many questions including:

    Q: Are there any Investment opportunities available?

    Q: How much will memberships cost?
    Q: Will there be financing options for memberships?
    Q: How many members will the facility be able to accommodate?
    Q: Will members be able to sell or transfer their Membership?
    Q: What will I receive for my membership?
    Q: Will there be a Kart track?
    Q: Will the facility be open for driving events all year round?
    Q: Given the climate in Alberta, How will it be possible for the Road Course to be open all year?
    Q: What activities will take place on the Road Courses and Skid-pad?
    Q: Will the Road Courses and Skid-pad be available to rent to non-members?
    Q: Will there be a facility available for low-speed driver training and autocross events?
    Q: Will there be Time Attack (Solo Sprint) at the Club?
    Q: Will there be Wheel to wheel Competition events on the Road Courses?
    Q: Will there be a drag strip or drag racing?
    Q: When will you start accepting deposits for memberships, garages, and residential condos?
    …And many more.

    Sincerely,

    Thought this project was long dead, good to hear otherwise.

    The more race tracks in AB the merrier.

    4.4 Mile Full Course Length Sweeeeet.

    Looks like this layout could facilitate 3 courses i.e. 3 seperate events at a time, that would be awesome.

    So is there going to be a drag strip? Looks like it'll be a lot of the same with Rat City, if they put it right by the grandstand close to the top.

    Will there be a drag strip or drag racing?

    The location prevents the availability of a dedicated NHRA/IHRA drag strip. The existing tracks in the Edmonton area and Medicine Hat will accommodate dedicated drag racing. However, it is recognized that many performance car owners wish to test the performance levels of their cars. So there will be Members events were Members will be able to test the ¼ performance of their car on the main straight of the Plateau Road Course. There also will likely be some heads up fun events where members can compete side by side in a drag race type event on the main straight using the clubs timing equipment.

    No drag strip, no care. Nobody's going to properly prep the middle of a straight-away for 1/4 mile racing.

    Drag strip combined on a road course is a terrible idea, dont think its in their plan at all.
