Following is a brief history of where we have been and where we are going.
In the early 1980’s the Rimbey Kinsmen started a demolition derby and worked to create a large following of both spectators and participants. The event became very popular and in 2000 it had to be relocated. As being recognized as one of the best demolition derby’s in Alberta the pressure was on to develop a larger and better facility.
A group of enthusiasts was formed and came forward with a plan to not only build a demolition derby but build a full Motorsports Park that included a 1/4 Mile Drag Strip, Race Oval, Demolition Derby, Motocross Track, Mud Bog and more. This dedicated group of car enthusiasts worked with the Rimbey Kinsmen and the Town of Rimbey to start the development of the Rimbey Kinsmen Motorsports Park. With the community's full support the committee began work and the vision became reality. With the help of many volunteers, corporate and private donations the project took off. The community has contributed considerable time, equipment, material and expertise to complete what has been done to date. This includes site design, construction of the Lonkar Dirt Oval, Motorcross track, mud bog and over 50,000 cubic meters of base work on the 1/4 Mile Drag Strip and additional developments still ongoing.
This is an exciting project as we bring to Alberta 80 acres of pure horsepower. We are committed to building a premium motor sports park that will be second to none and enjoyed by all for years to come.
