Ghost Tracks - Hurricane Speedway
1/4 mile paved oval
near Sudbury, Ontario

This is how Hurricane Speedway looked in the summer of 2004. Matt Hansford, who lives in the area, sent these photos to CanadianRacer.com. Matt and some friends were bike riding and stumbled across the track one evening. They went back with a camera a few days later.

Hurricane began as a dirt track and was later paved. The exact years of operation are unknown but it was operating in the early 1970's and was probably closed by around 1975.

The front wall and spectator fence are still there. The pits appear to have been behind the back straight. As noted in the captions, it looks like you can still see the entrance from the track to the pits.

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