Motorsports Park Scoping Study

Motorsports Park Scoping Study

Most years at our AGM there is a discussion regarding a track or dedicated space for events like Solosport.

Yukon Government LogoFunding from the Yukon Government Community Development Fund (CDF) was received by the Klondike Cruisers, to conduct a scoping study to see if there is potential to have a Motorsport Park in the Whitehorse area

We would like to see motorsport as an even bigger part of our community. By being able to host motorsport events, we can create a platform for enthusiasts and fans to come together sharing their love for the sport. This study provides an opportunity to assess the potential of establishing a dedicated facility, which would enhance our motorsport culture and provide a permanent venue for events.

We firmly believe that the study could lead to significant economic benefits to our region. Sporting events, including motorsports can help drive tourism. A park itself would provide employment.  By investing in the scoping study, we invest in the future of our community.

 The project is a high level Motorsport Park scoping study report that will: 

     Define the project scope: 

     Identify potential stakeholders: 

     Conduct a preliminary site analysis: 

     Review regulatory requirements:

     Consider financial feasibility: 

     Evaluate market demand: 

     Assess potential benefits and risks: 

The work will be done by a local consultant. Work will include research, connecting with other motorsport park developers and groups, as well as conducting a series of interviews and collecting information with relevant local government and private sector contacts and stakeholders, including First Nations. Information will then be compiled into a report covering the aforementioned topics. 

 Please note that this is a preliminary study only. Based on the output, a more detailed feasibility study and business plan would be required.     

This project will be conducted over the next 6 months and more information will be made available at a later date.

Share the Spirit Donation

Share the Spirit Donation

December of 2018 Klondike Cruisers made a $500 donation to Share the Spirit.

Share the Spirit Yukon https://www.afterthefireisout.com/new-index

Share the Spirit Yukon is our commitment to our city and territory’s less fortunate families to help make their Christmas magical, even in hard times. We organize with government, non-profit, and business partners, alongside any regular citizens with a desire to help out in this season of giving. The goal is to make sure every child gets something under their tree at Christmas, and receives a food hamper for their family with all the trimmings for a proper Christmas feast.

Klondike Cruisers raised these funds through the sale of our 2019 Calendars.
