Awesome track and amazing set up. Can book via Track Junkies or contact Castrol Raceway directly. Definitely a must if you want to test your car and skills limits when in Alberta, Canada.

Expensive visit. Oval side not the greatest for the price, head further east prices get more realistic. Drag side decent but still over priced. Washroom were pretty dirty.

Also, lots of low level seating, so you will be able to view the drag races easily. Just be sure to bring ear protection.
