Shannonville Motorsport Park has a long and rich history in the Canadian racing industry.  In 2024, it is celebrating it’s 50th Anniversary.

It was built in 1974 by John Nelson who was a motorcycle and racing enthusiast.  He operated a motorcycle shop in Toronto and built the track to organize motorcycle racing events.  The original Nelson track – named after Mr. Nelson – was expanded over the years and can now be used in four different configurations.  The facility also includes a drag strip and skidpad.

Shannonville proudly hosts a variety of motorsports activities year round.  Motorcycle and car enthusiasts can enjoy the many lapping events available to them.  Shannonville will host five championship drag racing events and five drifting events in 2020.  In addition, our popular Mix & Match events will take place throughout the season.  Mix & Match is where you can lap your car on our Nelson track and test your ultimate speed on our drag strip.

Shannonville is known as the Birthplace of Champions.  Many competitors have honed their skills at Shannonville and have gone on to become champions on the world motorsport stage.  There are a number of driving and race programs conducted every year which can help you to refine your skills whether you ride a motorcycle or drive a car.
