Limited Track Openings Stopped in Alberta

The re-opening of Central Alberta Raceways and Castrol Raceway in Alberta has hit a snag as provincial officials have shut down the track's efforts to resume on-track action on a limted basis.

According to a CBC report, "Alberta motorsport raceways are calling on the government to allow them to partially reopen amid some confusion over whether the tracks qualify as a permitted business under Alberta's relaunch strategy.

"Sherry Taylor, the oval track director at Central Alberta Raceways in Rimbey, Alta., says she worked with Alberta Health Services for two weeks to come up with a suitable plan to reopen this past weekend.

"Under a plan approved by AHS via email, the raceway was defined as an outdoor recreation business. Capacity limits would be enforced, food concession would be closed and physical distancing guidelines would be followed.

"But on Friday, she learned that raceways had been classified as "racing entertainment centres" by Alberta's chief medical officer and ordered to remain closed. It was a surprise, Taylor said, since the term is typically reserved for horse-racing tracks."
