THE LOCATION

Badlands Motorsports Resort

DIVERSE, VAST AND ACCOMODATING

Straddling the Rosebud River, the property acquired for Badlands Motorsports Resort is stunning, unique and the perfect setting for a world-class driving facility.

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.

Preserving and enhancing the natural features of the site is a critical design goal. The Valley Track is defined by existing wetlands and densely planted ponds. A network of pedestrian pathways will wind through natural grasslands and tree groves revealing observation areas, and other recreation opportunities.

Naturally wonderful and meticulously designed, the facility will be enjoyable at any speed.

Integrating with the Environment

The site features a variety of terrain, with a large plateau serving as a foundation for the development.

Beautiful Vistas

Overlooking the Rosebud River, the site offers incredible and lush views to the South.

Gateway to the Badlands

Looking North-East of the property, and heading towards Drumheller, key features of the Badlands take over.

Rolling Hills

Elevation changes add a critical element of interest to road course designs, and to other recreational areas featured in the resort development.

Indicative of Alberta

Integrating elements of the Foothills, Canadian Badlands, and Prairies, the natural landscape of the development property is an attraction of its own.
