Edenvale @ Stayner, Canada
6 turns, 1.75 mile Airport RC

The circuit is no longer operational. The track surface still exists.

Originally built as an airfield for the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan in World War II, RCAF Aerodromes.
RCAF Detachment Edenvale, also known as No. 1 Relief Landing Field, opened in 1940 near the village of Edenvale.
The triangular airfield consisted of three 3000 ft asphalt runways.
After 1946, Edenvale was simply abandoned.

In 1950, the Edenvale Aerodrome came back to life as a racetrack for sports car and motorcycle racing. Known at various times as the Stayner Speedway and the Edenvale Raceway, the former airfield continued in this capacity until 1959, when it was once again abandoned.
The British Empire Motor Club (BEMC) organized the racing from 1950-1955.
In 1956 the property owner decided to try running it himself as a professional track. He turned it into a 1.5 mile tri-oval (Stayner Speedway).
Used for drag races in 1958 - run by the Toronto District Hot Rod Association.
In 1959 the owner turned it back into a road course and held motorcycle and sports car events.

The military re-activated the site in 1962 as a remote radio communications station for Base Borden.
Racing at the former training field ended when the Department of National Defence took it back for use as a radio transmitter location operating until the late 90s.

In 2002 the site returned to civilian small plane use and resumed operations as Edenvale Aerodrome.
By 2004, the old aerodrome came back to life when the Edenvale Flying Club opened. The east-west runway was re-opened and a new 50' x 150' x 14' steel-sided hangar was built.

The Track:
Varying grip levels depending on what segment of the track you're on.
Wicked ruts on the pavement edge where cars tend to run wide on corner exit.
Free entry into the pits, enter your stall from any location. Pit exit does require you stay inside (or in contact with) the blue line.
To keep the ai under control, a 150mph pitroad speed limit has been employed.
Stay clear of the cones in T1, they'll upset the car.
6 turns, 1.75 mile Airport RC. Sounds easy enough, huh?:lol:

Thank you Fortine
Allways nice with some further info for a track.

By the way. I can highly recommend the roadtrack: Riverside International Raceway 1970/Riverside 1970-Long.
The GTP camp on FSB racing are practicing on this track for the last race in 2011.
Pretty entertaining highspeed track:-)

NR2003 RC warriors are dwindling, not that they were ever a multitude.;)
