Ghost Tracks -Elephant Rock Speedway
1/4 mile paved oval
Norway, PEI

This is how Elephant Rock Speedway looked in the summer of 2005 when Rich Wilkins visited it.

Elephant Rock was built by Bob Doyle over the course of two years and opened in 1996. Apparantly the track did not last very long. The pits were located behind the back straight. The corners were banked at 24 degrees.

There are a few things that are unique about Elephant Rock. The first is the banking - it's the highest I've seen on track this size. The grandstands are also unique. Instead of running along the whole front straight, they start at the start / finish line and run down to turn 1. Lastly, I've never seen a covered flagstand before.

If anyone has any more information on Elephant Rock Speedway - photos, programs, points champions, years in use, etc please contact me webmaster@motorsportscentral.com.
