10 Feb A UNIQUE ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT OPPORTUNITY
PROPOSED VANCOUVER ISLAND MOTORSPORT PARK AT THE CAMPBELL RIVER AIRPORT.
Why a Motorsports Facility? Vancouver Island lacks any permanent racing facility for drag racing, the world’s most participated in form of racing (and the average street car can compete). Annual events can bring millions of dollars to the local economy. The Island has a large contingent of racers with only temporary facilities (Alberni & Port McNeill). Although the main use would be drag racing, this area would open for other needs ( similar venues accommodate a wide variety of recreational and other activities, including: road racing, motocross, bicycle racing, police training, professional driving schools, and club events for car enthusiasts.
