Hi,
right now there is just a gravel parking lot...but I think an actual Track is being started in April...
As for where to meet it is at the Cleverdale youth park...on 64th ave and 176. You can get in through the Cedar arch on 176th or if the skate board park isn't in use through that area. The time is around 6:30 pm or close to that.

Nice footage Jim. Try and tilt the cam up 10 degrees see if you can get as much sky as ground

Hi Kris,
Yes that was just a test run to see if it was stable...I mounted it on my traxxis but it kept sliding sideways...so I mounted it in my Electix car and it seemed more stable but a little close to ground. I was going to bring it out tonight and see how it works in the parking lot gravel. I plan to keep the electrix RC for the camera for now.

p.s. Weather permitting as you say..I will come out but whether I run the car is optional. LoL
