Quebec’s well-known Autodrome St-Eustache roadracing track is set to close at the end of the 2019 season.
St-Eustache featured as the sole Quebec stop on the Canadian Superbike schedule for many years, and was reckoned to be one of the top roadracing facilities in that province, although it is shorter than the other CSBK tracks and was considered by some to be in rough shape, despite ownership’s efforts to keep it up. Currently, Jordan Szoke holds the Pro Superbike lap record at the 10-turn, 1.2-mile track (00:44.812, set in 2015), and Jodi Christie holds the Pro Sport Bike lap record (00:45.872, set in 2011).
The track is closing as the city of St-Eustache and Hydro Quebec have teamed up to expropriate the property, meaning all motorsports activity will cease at the end of the 2019 season—and that’s about all we know. The press release on Facebook is in French, and if you can translate, you’ll see a few more details there.
