Calabogie Road Classic Cancelled / Postponed
Delays due to provincial bureaucracy have unfortunately postponed the scheduled paving of Calabogie Motorsports Park's track. Regrettably, this in turn forces us to cancel the event for the time being.
We will endeavor to reschedule as soon as we have visibility as to when the road surfacing will begin.
We apologize for the inconvenience.
