Atlantic Motorsports Park (AMP or just plain Shubie to those in the know) is the premier track out in Atlantic Canada.

Built in 1974, it is a 2.5km (1.6 mile) 11 turn road circuit on a 377 acre site. It has been a regular host for a variety of regional and national motorsports events on both two and four wheels. It is located approximately 40-50 minutes North of Halifax, Nova Scotia just outside of the town of Shubenacadie. http://www.atlanticmotorsportpark.com/index.php

The track is mostly a right hander with the following layout:

One of AMP's greatest challenges is the downhill "dog-leg" through corners 1 and 2, followed by the roller-coaster ride through corners 4, 5 and 6. It is highly regarded as one of the most technical circuits in the country, and provides a challenging learning experience for both novice and advanced drivers alike

According to present accounts, it's somewhat bumpy, which may be the understatement of the year. You can get a sense of this in this ride video from Steve Crevier

I guess I'll find out myself soon - I'm headed out there tomorrow for CSBK Round 3
