Auburn Hills Motocross Track
After lying dormant for more than a decade, new life has been breathed into a track long favoured by riders and fans alike. The previous owner was holding on to the property in the hopes that a buyer would come along that wanted to continue the long tradition of motocross riding on the 100-acre property when Tyson Hawkins and his brother Tom came along in 2021 with just that dream in mind.
Hawkins spent a year rehabilitating the track, and with the help of track designer Barry Hetherington, was able to get up and running in 2022 with four weekends of Amateur Motocross Ontario (AMO)-sanctioned races.
The beautiful rolling hills just off of Donnybrook Line north of Auburn provide a sweeping vista of the Maitland River valley and neighbouring farm fields. The terrain only needed a little help from Hetherington and Hawkins to make the course one of the top tracks in Ontario.
Prep for the 2023 season began as soon as the snow melted, and included four days of intense preparation prior to the first race of the season on May 5.
The schedule includes two AM0-sanctioned events (May 5-6 and August 26-27, with open practices on the Saturday and up to 18 classes of races on Saturday and Sunday), and two Thames Valley Riders local events on May 20-21 and August 20-21).
Competitors and their families have access to dry camping right on site, and with age classes from age 4 and up it is a real family-oriented sport.
Auburn Hills offers great access to the track for spectators with viewing areas so close to the action your adrenaline will make you feel like part of the action. Tickets are available at the gate and there is a food truck on site!
