The #1 Family Entertainment Facility in the Comox Valley

What to Expect

A typical Summer Night Under the Racetrack Lights at Saratoga Speedway gets underway in the afternoon when the rental go-carts are cleared off the track to make way for hot laps featuring all the racing hardware that’s been trickling in from the back gate and setting up in the pits since 12:30. Spectators are encouraged to join us as the gates re-open for racing at 2:30, get your seat all warmed up and your favourite cold beverage from the Pepsi product line-up or from the R-Ace Gardens service kiosk and watch your favourite driver and pit team tune their racer up for the coming competition.

PRO-TIP: Now is a great time to fuel up! Visit the concessions for a great menu of hot meals from burgers to wraps; pizzas to our famous poutine! Snacks candies and drinks…

Hot-laps continue throughout the afternoon providing fans a taste of things to come leading to the driver’s meeting before time-trials get underway at 4:45. Time trials set the racing order for the main events and gives fans an idea of what drivers and cars they’re about to see in the heats and dashes which will take place immediately following the Anthems at 6 pm. 

At the end of the trophy dashes and heats the line-ups will be announced; by then everyone will have their favourite racer or car picked out! The main events get underway with the night’s feature races when each class get on the track in turn to duke it out and claim bragging rights and prize money and those all important championship points!!

For several reasons including the track re-development and challenges with zoning issues Saratoga Speedway was forced to preclude driver training since 2021. During the period we’ve been busy re-developing the program and preparing to re-launch driver training at the end of the 2022 racing season. With a new professional Chief Instructor,  a new training curriculum and soon some actual race cars for those taking on advanced level 2 and 3 training, we plan to go live with the program before the end of September! 

Keep an eye on our website and Face Book page for more announcements and details!

The legendary Saratoga Speedway rental carts are fuelled up and primed for their final season on the oval track before transitioning to a state-of-the-art go-kart track featuring left and right turns for a new fleet of incredibly fast and environmentally conscious e-karts!

This is what memories are made from; so many families in the Comox Valley can compare stories and claim bragging rights about their experiences over the years on the 3/8 tri-oval track. Inter-generational rivalries exist; this is where they pressed hard on the accelerator and honed their skills on the same track that the high-horsepower racers use to create their own Saratoga Speedway memories! 

Our speedway carts are Honda powered open-cockpit racers; we supply the gas and helmet, you supply the need for speed. Carts will run on the track during varied hours and days limited by the racing schedule, and seasonal considerations. Groups are encouraged to book in advance and walk-up racers are very welcome!

Pegasus has awoken after a long hibernation during the pandemic! She’s a beefed up and re-built actual Monster Truck needing a high ladder to mount, and features seating for 8 intrepid riders ready to strap into her custom-designed passenger compartment with 4-point racing harnesses! Riders will experience the excitement of hearing the 460 cubic-inch Ford Big Block engine roar and feel the adrenalin rush as she powers her way over high moguls, crushes cars, and crab-winds her way around her riding range! 

This unique experience is available during most go-kart rental hours as well as certain periods throughout race-night and special event operations.
