Based on the many comments and questions we’ve received in the last few weeks regarding the physical track itself, it’s obvious that this is the most important information people are excited to learn more about. Thus, in the upcoming weeks, we will be highlighting the various areas of the track to you in preparation for the final reveal. In the image below, you will see some of the details within one of our highly technical corner combinations. As this is still only a very high level detail plan, the experience of our track design team and the abilities of our highly skilled team of builders will ensure that every centimetre of the track is built to the design specifications that will allow it to drain the way it should and provide grip and excitement at world-class levels.

A meeting at the newly “Tilke” redesigned F1 track in Mexico, home to the first F1 race in November will take place later this month. We want to ensure that designers, engineers and builders understand the many facets of building a safe and exciting track that will serve motorsport enthusiasts for many years to come.

Here are a few Vancouver Island Motorsport Resort track facts:
Maximum incline: 12.5% between corner 14 and 15
Maximum slope: 11.5% between corner 4 and 5
Track width: 10 m
19 turns, 7 left turns and 12 right turns
Top speed 211 km/h
Number of short cuts: 4
Track lay out combinations:
Extremely lively topography
Hanging and banked corners in all sections
Highest skill driving class category
Not designed for international racing and for that, it was designed with more excitement and character. A pure test and presentation track with the possibility for club sport activities.
Run off areas designed with the newest technology and standards preventing damages to cars and bikes and offering possibility to correct and return safely on to the track.

It is defiantly not another western speed way. Look at area 27 that is what they are going for.

It is a privately owned track. That being said there will be days when the track will be empty. Odds are high that GAIN will rent it out to reputable organizations/clubs for track days (eg VMSC and VIRPCA).

Not sure how anyone can say that there will be days the track is not in use and that there is a high chance that they will rent to organisations and or clubs. As the reason for bringing it up here is the fact we have a longer season for their members to use it. But if so it still means that one would have to be a member of a specific organisation or club that may or may not have track time . So in my opinion it would be those organisations / clubs with the most monies. Also just found out yesterday that they have not got planning permission yet, the only permit they hold is to deforest the land at this time. But I for one believe that the people of the Island deserve a definitive answer of the possible usage and not just blind us with the track spec's as a spin doctor would do.. The term carpet bagger also comes to mind. sorry for being a bit political.I am sure most of you would like an answer also instead of assuming things

If this is true, then this whole track adventure is a LONG WAY from fruition.

maybe that is why they are waiting to announce more info, before the locals get out their pitch forks. They shut down a planned go kart track pretty quick

Hello again I have just received a response from Mr Peter Trzewik of GAIN


Dear Richard,



Our Motor Sports Resort will be a facility that has a few different uses.

It will be a membership club for people that want to make their car and driving on a track to get better a hobby or passion. They will find car storage, track ready service, assistance in setting the car up in suspension and performance to get better lap times. They will also have a nice club house available to them that allows them to spend the day driving and talking with like-minded people.

The track will be blocked for 15 days per month for the 2-300 members. The membership will be limited to this number so that all of them have enough track time available.



However, there will be time every month where the facilities can be rented by companies, clubs and corporations. They can then bring people and cars there to use the facilities for the track.





I saw the comment on a couple of forums on line that this is a facility for $100,000 plus cars and I think the value of the car makes no difference. There will be cars in and above that price range and I look forward seeing them take on the many corners and setting new lap records. However, they will have to be safe cars as we don’t want to see anybody hurt because they drive a car fast that puts them in danger. They will also have to be in a track ready condition to assure safety and as we want to operate a facility that is very clean and tidy, they can’t be leaking oil all over the place.



But a fast track car doesn’t have to be expensive to enjoy. Our Porsche store is preparing a 944 cup car to showcase to their clients the simplicity of a well-balanced car and teach them how to drive without the electronics of a modern sports car.



I hope that clears things up a bit

Have a great weekend,





Peter Trzewik
even after reading this response I feel it is for the select few with lots of $$$$.
What will they charge the companies/clubs and the CORPORATIONS ? They (clubs companies, corp) in turn will have to make a profit so what would the average Joe pay ?
I wonder if a Honda prelude owned by the kid who works at Tim Hortons or Burger King would be allowed on the track?

Given the reply, I think GAIN has made it pretty obvious that the venue will be available for rental outside of GAIN (whatever club or membership they decide to call themselves). However, by the sound of it, this track rental cost is also not going to be cheap. Somehow, I get the impression that this track rental cost is going to be more costly than renting some of the nearby US tracks. But I will remain optimistic until actual rental pricing is announced.

My last post was in response to this query below.

I was very happy to hear of the track resort going in the Cowichan Valley. So after reading some news articles, I am wondering if your facility has any accommodation for the local people and their Hot Rods and performance cars (that are way under the $100.000 mark) or is all this intended for the select rich ? or is it possible for us locals to become members? If so is the membership fee going to be affordable. I ask this because most people I have talked to are under the impression that it is for anyone who wishes to use it (providing that the vehicles pass all safety inspections and pay the required fee)

Thanks,
Richard.

PS revscene don't have count this as my fifth post as I should have included it in my last post .

I cant get an answer on the membership fee or track rental fee Mr Peter Tzrwik is avoiding my questions...

to Peter












Hello Peter,




Thank you for your response to my query, It does answer some of my questions . I do have a few more.

What is the price for membership? any available?

What would be the price for a club to rent the track per day/weekend or week?




The majority of us Islanders do not own Porsche's or the like. I myself own a first gen firebird. a friend owns a 1978 Mazda RX7 fully restored are these kinds of car worthy enough for the motor sport resort, or do they have to have modern upgraded suspension?




Please forgive my bombarding you with these questions as there are so many rumors as to what the facility is about ..First it was rumored that it is going to be a noise park ( drag/ circuit/Karting / motorcycles and concerts) and now we hear its mainly for the out of country rich and real race car driver's ( Sebastian Vettel , Fernando Alonso ) to practice in the offseason

So again please forgive my questioning and hope that this all works out for everyone including the underpaid locals who have made this Island (with blood sweat and tears) to what it is today




Thanks in advance,


Good morning Richard,



You are right, there have been many rumors and it is amazing how a private facility has become something so many people have an opinion about.

Like any other facility it will not be one for all. Spring Mountain, Monticello, the Thermal club and all other facilities have a certain group of people they appeal to and some they don’t. Even very small facilities like Western Speedway aren’t open for everybody and every use and many don’t want to or can use the facility. Our venue will for sure not have a drag strip and it will not be a motor sport facility that holds loud events at night time. No neighbor has to be worried as the highway between them and the track is louder than anything coming from the track. We have loud excavators, compactors and trucks driving in an out and you can’t hear any of that from the neighbor’s road. On top of that will we have more vegetation at the areas surrounding our property to keep more noise in and out and to give us the private feeling we are looking for.



It is way too early to talk about all the details but there will be blocks of days available to clubs, organisations and companies and if you and your friends are in a classic car club (based on the age of the two cars you mentioned), then it will be the clubs decision to approach the staff at the resort and start a conversation. This team will be in place in January 2016.



By the way the person in charge of the German Auto Import Performance driving program, and that will be the head person for those activities in the resort drives a 72 Datsun 510 in Motor sport events and is very proud of it.



Right now I answer e mails because there isn’t anybody working at the resort yet. So far we have started, beside the construction team, to work with our dealer group marketing team on things like the website. Later this year the HR team will be looking for the right staff and then our whole dealer group will involve all dealerships until the grand opening.



We will also have to look for a capable Stig, get a reasonable priced car and need a lap time board.


All the best



Peter Trzewik

If you read my other post you will notice its not hearsay as all the info I received is from Mr. Peter Trzewik of 3 point motors ..I was sick of hearing rumors so I contacted them myself to hear it from the horses mouth only to have the important questions avoided as you can see in the post's above it seem to me they are counting on people to wait to see what happens and then its to late for anyone to do anything about it ( if there is/was anything that could/have been done about it) But alas we are Canadians so we will just bend over and say have a nice day eh , as always.

It's a private business they can run it any way they want.

Hi everybody - I'v kinda been monitoring the development here in the background.

Can somebody clarify a few things for me;

-is the property being developed for the motorsports track public or private? (if public, what are the terms of the lease?)

-are the costs associated with developing the complex public or private or a combination of both?

If this is strictly a privately owned and privately funded project why the opposition to a) its development and b) the right of the owners to restrict access to their facility?

If I lived on the Island and badly wanted to compete on a track Mission and The Ridge are still where they have always been. If the Island facility is privately funded and operated they are under no obligation to make it accessible to the general public.

Certainly not trying to stir up emotions but I'm confused about the anger on the Island towards this project. Private funding = private facility. Maybe I'm missing something.

-are the costs associated with developing the complex public or private or a combination of both?

If this is strictly a privately owned and privately funded project why the opposition to a) its development and b) the right of the owners to restrict access to their facility?

It's 100% private.

From BC actually.

Was just doing a quick search about the track info someone posted in comparison is 3.1 miles long. In perspective Leguna Seca is 2.2 miles long.

How long do you expect this track to be?
