Track: Atlantic Motorsports Park, Nova Scotia

Nova Scotia, Canada

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.

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
