Need for speed, Area 27

Speed freaks looking for a peek at a new South Okanagan racetrack are in for a treat.

A new video out of Oliver’s new Area 27 racetrack shows a dash-cam perspective of a Porsche 918 tearing through the 4.9-kilometre road circuit.

The track, which opened up near Oliver in the late summer, is phase one for Area 27, which is set to eventually include a clubhouse and vehicle service and storage, condo-style “arrive and drive suites,” and event-related infrastructure, such as pit garages and grandstands.

Paving on the track began in August, and according to the website, it’s the only track west of Ontario that’s longer than two miles.

Its grand opening is set for spring 2017.
