Safety of all those on site is always our top priority and we have some established rules to ensure everyone has the saftest most enjoyable time possible.


Spectators are FREE at most events held at Calabogie Motorsports Park including HPDE and Calabogie Challenge Series night races.
This excludes special large racing events (which will be noted on the event registration page). 


All passengers must be 16 years of age or older and have a passenger wristband and after signing the liability waiver.
One passenger is permitted in the front of each vehicle with certain restrictions:
Novice drivers may not have passengers, with the exception of instructors.  Novices may only have a passenger if approved. Driver seat & restraint must match the passenger seat & restraint (if mismatched, passengers will not be permitted - this includes instructors)
Intermediate and Advanced drivers may have passengers as long as the passenger has the same safety equipment as the driver - helmet, equal seats & restraints (both either standard seat belts or harnesses but not mis-matched) and HANS device if applicable.
For any of our track rental cars, passengers are not permitted in any program.

Additional Drivers

Sharing a car in a DIFFERENT run group
Drivers may share a vehicle in separate run groups.  
Each driver needs to register for the event as normal.  

Sharing a car in the SAME run group or an OPEN Lapping event (Club or Track Night)
If you plan to share a car with a friend or family member and allow them to drive your car on track in the same run group you are registered in, an additional driver wristband must be purchased:
  • Advanced registration is required for additional drivers, which can be completed online. A link will be provided here when online registration is available.
  • An additional driver is $100 per event and MUST register online in advance.
  • The additional driver wristband does qualify as a passenger wristband as well, subject to the passenger policy above. 
  • All additional drivers must attend all mandatory driver's meetings including the one held before the track goes hot each morning of an event.
Additional drivers MUST HAVE APPROPRIATE DRIVING EXPERIENCE and have been approved for the run group they are "sharing" with the primary registered driver. 
  • If their experience/skill level does not match yours, an additional entry must be purchased in the appropriate run group for their skill level. 
  • Any driver determined not to be in the appropriate run group is subject to removal or reassignment.  There are no refunds available if an additional driver does not meet the requirements of the shared run group and is disqualified from driving.  We will credit the additional driver wristband fee toward the purchase of an entry in the appropriate run group (subject to availability) if deemed appropriate and desired by the driver.

Track Damage

Drivers are solely responsible for any track damage they cause – this includes damage to any barriers and/or surfaces, oil dry used to clean up fluid leaks/spills, fire extinguishers, etc. 
Drivers will be billed for such damages and/or consumables. Payment must be made at the time an invoice is received.
These are not "marked up" in any way and drivers are only responsible for actual costs incurred.

Safety is our number one priority, that of all our drivers, staff and coaches.
We employ a 3-strike policy at all our driving events.
