Race

The first road race in Canada is believed to have been held at Abbotsford  Airport where the Sports Car Club of BC hosted events from 1952 to 1956. In 1957 the club members raised funds through debentures and built a full service road course in Coquitlam B.C, on Crown Land leased from the Provincial Government. For the next 32 years the club operated the track known as Westwood Motorsport Park, and affectionately referred to as Mountain High Racing. Westwood gained recognition throughout North America playing host to such greats as Gilles Villeneuve, Bobby Rahal, and Michael Andretti. The annual Atlantic series races often drew over 10,000 spectators. Sadly, the exciting facility was closed in 1990 to make way for the Westwood Plateau housing development.

 

In July '94, the Sports Car Club of B.C. opened its current racing venue, the River’s Edge Road course at Mission Raceway Park thanks to the support of the BC Custom Car Association and Molson Indy Vancouver. The track has been upgraded continually over the years and has proved to provide a challenge to drivers while offering exceptional viewing for spectators.
