Rip around this new premier racetrack right outside of Calgary
Start your engines, because things are about to get real fast and real furious. Get revved up for the Badlands Motorsport Racetrack and Resort, a car lover’s paradise right outside of Calgary.
The premier recreational track and residential development were approved in 2013 despite the land being purchased way back in 2005, so it’s been a long time coming. Finally, there’s a light at the end of the tunnel. Er, at the end of the racetrack? We’ll go with that.
This place is meant to be enjoyed not only by speed demons, but also by their families and friends. Yes, it will have a fancy racetrack available to any person with a vehicle that passes a quick (but thorough) inspection, but it will also have vacation amenities, restaurants and hiking trails nearby!
Badlands is expected to rival tracks across North America, which is crazy considering the outstanding facilities renowned across the continent. You’d know if you were a speed demon.
Guests will be able to go go-karting, test-drive a new vehicle, or just watch the pros burn some rubber among instructors and rookies alike.
This $400 million project does not have an opening date quite yet, but we’ll keep you guys updated! Until then, good luck getting Tokyo Drift by the Teriyaki Boyz out of your head. Man, talk about an earworm.
