The City of Campbell River and the Campbell River Airport Authority approved permission to conduct on-site feasibility studies as required. This is the first step to making our proposal a reality.

Hello Race Fans
I see you are about to endeavor to create a feasibility study for your proposed drag strip in Campbell River.
You may wish to contact the Cowichan Valley Regional District for their information. I believe they financed a $50,000.00 feasibility study when there was CVRD interest in creating the Cowichan Valley Outdoor Recreation Park. The CVORP was to include many forms of auto racing including a dragstrip on a 450 hectare parcel of land near Paldi on the Cowichan Highway.

Was an awesome weekend in Port McNiell as always. Thanks you guys and gals for everything. Was much chatting about C.R. possibilities for our own track. ( all good ) I’m sure Membership will take a real jump as everyone wants the same thing ,……….A REAL PLACE TO RACE,……..We all love and support Port McNiell and always will but a true Race Facility would be fantastic. I strongly suggest everyone get on board and get behind this group. TOGETHER WE CAN DO THIS . Keep up the good work Jim.

Thanks Peter for the suggestion. I just read your post and did some checking. It looks like a study was done in 2002 and referred to in a big report on recreation for the Cowichan Valley Regional District in 2009. I think the $50,000 was spent on the latter report, which makse a very short reference to a motorsport facilty. I cannot find anything more recent than that.. If you have any more information please contact me.

What an awesome opportunity!
Everyone that is a car enthusiast always likes to see what their builds are capable of @ somepoint… Why not make a safe & fun place where all enthusiasts can run their car/s down a Drag Strip safely with Emergency Response teams on stand by…
I’m sure there will be so much business for the Facility here on the island & also Volunteers will be all over this to make it an unreal experience for everyone!
