Shannonville Motorsport Park is known as the Birthplace of Champions.  It has a long and rich history in Canadian motorsport.  Many competitors have honed their skills at Shannonville and have gone on to become champions on the world motorsport stage.  Uniquely located approximately equidistant between Montreal and Toronto, it draws from the key markets in Eastern Canada and the USA. The facility includes a 4.03km multi-configurable racetrack, go-kart track, drag strip and skid pad on 146 acres. Shannonville hosts over twenty spectator events every season and can accommodate thousands of spectators with three grandstands overlooking the complete property.

Students are required to supply their own helmet and manual-shift (automatic accepted) car.  Upon successful completion, students will be eligible to formally apply for a car racing licence.
