The typical track user is the driver of a road going sports car or sports bike driving amongst small groups of similar performance vehicles in low intensity competitive or non-competitive conditions. Such drivers are typically part of a club group, often coordinated under the auspices of such clubs as the Porsche, BMW, Viper one make associations or as part of commercially operated Track Day groups or regional sports car clubs. Many users are also drawn to the Calabogie Motorsports facility as customers of high performance driving or riding schools.
The layout and design of the Calabogie Motorsports course was designed to provide high-speed challenges not found on public roads or even other comparable closed driving courses, in the safest possible conditions as required by ASN Canada, the sanctioning body under which the track operates.
Calabogie Motorsports Park has been recognized as one of the most aesthetically pleasing driving facilities in North America thanks to the proximity of its woodlands, its adherence to the natural topography of the site and the sheer drama of its course design.
