Badlands Motorsports Resort
WHERE IS THE PROJECT LOCATED?
The development site is located in the county of Kneehill, Alberta approximately 30 minutes West of the town of Drumheller, South of Alberta Highway 9. Travel time by car from Calgary International Airport to the site is approximately 80 minutes.
Located in “The Gateway to the Badlands” the site is in close proximity to a wide variety of Southern Alberta attractions and recreation opportunities like Horseshoe Canyon, the Royal Tyrrell Museum, and the Hoodoo Trail.
Four hundred and twenty-five acres north of the river has been rezoned for development. Major elements, including the North Track and all future buildings are to be placed on an upper plateau (formerly cultivated lands) which overlooks the valley and beautiful landscape characteristic of the Badlands below.
CENTRAL TO SOUTHERN ALBERTA
The nearest major centre to the development, Calgary is by many measures the fastest growing and wealthiest city in Canada. Badlands Motorsports Resort is approximately 1hr and 20minutes away from city centre by car. With a population of more than 1.2million, Calgary is currently the largest city centre in North America without a major motorsports facility located nearby. The Calgary International Airport (YYC) is a major gateway for visitors from far and wide, accepting direct flights from all over the world.
Featuring a variety of world-class attractions, the town of Drumheller epitomizes the Badlands region, and thrives on visiting traffic. Badlands Motorsports Resort is less than 30 minutes west of the town.
