Vancouver Island Motorsports Association (VIMSA) is committed to the creation and development of a permanent drag racing and motorsports facility on Vancouver Island. We love motorsports and know that an Island based facility would be well used. The economic impact of this type of facility would be significant to any community. Be part of our organization and help make this happen. Join the team. Talk with everyone you know who will support this effort. Motorsports builds lasting friendships and is a great family sport. VIMSA is focused on providing entertainment for spectators and participants alike. Learn more about our efforts.
As mentioned in the 2019 Year End Message, a private landowner has offered a potential site for our proposed facility. The site is south of Campbell River near the Cranberry Lane turnoff on the Inland Island Highway. As it turned out, the site was too short for a full ¼ mile facility (4000 feet required), so the landowner has offered to acquire additional acreage to accommodate the facility. The cost for him to purchase the additional land is $300,000 and there is a stipulation that it can only be used as a drag strip. We have discussed that a long-term lease would be in order. In preliminary meetings with the regional district, we have confirmed that the industrial zoning has potential for allowing this use.
