Very Nice!! I have to agree...Thanks for seeing the opportunity and taking on the challenge to make this a reality. A second track in Alberta will be fabulous! Hopefully things continue to move forward.

I personally think Badlands is going to be a hit. The part that got me excited is the elevation changes.

Quick question, can the lifetime membership be transferred? Can I sell it to others if I need not the membership anymore?

Yes, you own your membership and can sell or transfer it to whomever you want. So once memberships sales have reached a maximum, the only way to get one would be to buy one from an existing member. With time and inflation, there could be significant capital gains.

Updates on our Facebook Page.

THE SOUTH COURSE:
We still need the Geotechnical and Civil engineers to sign off on the this design but we are not anticipating any major changes.

The South Course is within the River Valley that also has a very large “mountainous” peaked hill in the center that rises over 100 feet. The track runs counter clockwise. The paddock and start line is on a raised flat plateau.

After the start line, there is an immediate sharp left hand turn (Turn 1) that descends over a steep g...rade into the valley with a drop of 62 feet (19m) in the valley.

After the drop, there is an immediate right hand corner (Turn 2) that leads multiple corners (3,4,5) through the undulating valley.
There is then a banked hairpain (Turn 6) that uses the banking of the valley’s natural toppgraphy.

Then begins the highlight features of the track: the track rises straight up the steep hill in the middle. There is an 82 foot (25m) rise over a short distance. Upon reaching the top of the hill, there are two sweeping corners (7 and 8) on the top of the hill that leads to a very steep downward plunge back into the valley. The drop is 89 feet (27m) and encompasses turns 9, 10, and 11.

After dropping back into the Valley, the track then traverses up the side of the coulee wall 59 feet (18m) in a left, right, left pattern (Turns 13, 14, and 15).

After reaching the highest point of the Coulee wall, there is descent back into the valley that includes as sharp banked hairpin. The drop back into the Valley is 56 feet (17m).

The track then drives around the large hill in the middle but ascends along the side of the hill using the banking of the hills to create a 30 foot rise (between turns 17 and 18) and the drops back down 39 feet (12m) into the low point of the valley.

From the low point, there is then a steep ascend back to the start line with starts with a high speed sweeper (Turn 20) and finishes with a mild left hand turn (Turn 21) to the finish.

The total elevation changes are more than any track in North America. Fortunately, we plan that there will be services in the North Track paddock that offer Brake pad sales and installation!
