Saturday April 13th will be the first time out on the new outdoor race track in Ancaster! It was originally scheduled as a race, but we’ve decided to make this date a practice instead.
It’ll be a great idea to have the first time on the outdoor track a test session as opposed to a full out race. This will give everyone a chance to be properly prepare themselves and know the expectations before heading into the inaugural race at the facility.
We thank everyone that came out to support the indoor track a few weeks ago. It was amazing to see the great positive feedback from everyone and I’m glad to see everyone stoked. The event was captured well behind the lens by David Dudley and Randy Wiebe. It reassures us that Ancaster is a great change and we are sure we will have the same reaction from the outdoor track.
We want to make sure we have everything organized and safe before announcing more dates which will include weekly practices. There has been a great deal of interest in the haze of all the excitement for more practice dates to be announced, and I reassure you there will be. With our experience, we realize we can’t afford to get ahead of ourselves, taking things slow and cautiously will help our long-term game plan.
Among practice dates we will be adding a structured junior school program and kids camps for riders ranging from 4 -13 years of age. More information will soon to follow along with dates.
In the meantime, Saturday afternoon will be our first GoFlatTrack Mobile race school at the Ancaster Fairgrounds. To sign up, visit www.goflattrack.com , if you have your own bike and want to sign up for a discounted rate call us at 226 203 2100.
Saturday evening from 7pm – 10:30pm will be our first outdoor practice/ test session under the lights. The event is $40 for adults, $20 for kids and FREE for all spectators. For most races in 2019 at Ancaster Fairgrounds spectators will be FREE, so make sure you come out and support. We hope to have local Hamilton/ Ancaster businesses to help support the venture and keep it FREE for spectators.
