Experience the thrill of becoming one with the road as you rip through curves and straight-a-ways while racing through one of the best kept secrets in the area.

Otter Valley Speedway, a secret no longer, offers a recreational experience second to none.

“Once you get used to the car and the curves—it’s a lot of fun,” said Rick Van Skiver who ventured out to the track just this past weekend, “the track is awesome.”

The Otter Valley Speedway has been known to only a small number of locals and visitors to the Tulameen area for a few years, but the new track supervisor figures that this little secret should be let out.

Meet Margaret Ratzlaff, track supervisor who has decided to promote this little gem and introduce this recreational experience to all who had no clue of it’s existence.

“It just needs a little promotion,” said Ratzlaff who is busy planning signage and going about letting people know it’s there.

Otter Valley Speedway is located 38 kilometers from Princeton, 3 miles from the north side of the Otter Lake Campground.

There is plenty of parking space—bring your barbecue and make an afternoon out of it. The regular rates are; seven minutes for $10 and 15 minutes for $20 per car. Special rates are offered for party bookings.

Throughout July and August the Otter Valley Speedway is open 10 a.m., to 6 p.m., each day except Tuesday and Wednesdays for which  the speedway is closed.

Call 250-295-3973 to book your time.
