Hi Brian,
I agree that Calabogie is a great facility and I would love it if we could get it back on our DE schedule, but as Wayne noted, we always struggled to get the numbers there. We have tried partnering with other Regions, but even then it was always a struggle to break even. Rennsport used to hold DE events there, but I don’t know if they still do. In the past, they have not been open to a joint event. It is an expensive facility to rent for a DE weekend and the noise restrictions there do exclude some of the cars with open exhausts. We also have trouble getting enough Instructors which leads to doubling up (two students for each instructor) which on a twisty track like Calabogie is very hard on the body. Great track though.
