Event Details

Saratoga Speedway proudly presents the first annual Island Storm Craft Beer Festival and Drift Competition sponsored by 98.9 The Jet FM and Ace Brewing Company!

With so many craft brewers on the Island, we couldn’t help but invite a select group to set up a couple kegs in R-Ace Gardens and provide a taste of summer! Joined by a local vintner and a local Cidery, the Island Storm Brewers will showcase their products in the beer gardens while the track gets a new layer of rubber laid down with drivers getting their cars and senses tuned in for competition at the close of the festival! Return transportation for festival-goers will be available from central locations in Courtenay and Campbell River (schedule to be posted) for a modest fee. 98.9 The Jet FM will be pumping some wattage into the cottage all afternoon!!
