We at the Vancouver Island Motorsport Circuit moved into the District of North Cowichan to build and provide growth within to the community. We assure you that every part of our operation exceeds both expectations and anticipations. We strive to operation safe driving events and member days throughout the year within a controlled environment and facilitated by our professional driving instructors. We are proud to be a part of this community and we appreciate and value the support the community has towards our new operations.
As one of our utmost important goals in every part of our group, we want to be good neighbours. Our 10 automotive dealerships attest to this with over 20 years of impeccable history followed by an active involvement within the community to support our local charities and the people in need. At the same time, these dealerships have also been anchors within the community to enhance the neighborhood with our clean and modern buildings and businesses that provide security and vibrancy. Our attention to detail in landscaping and facility is as well known as our desire to provide the best in client care. With over 40,000 clients and over 475 employees on Vancouver Island, we proudly represent one of Vancouver Island’s largest automotive dealer groups.
It is with these exact goals of which have been implied at the Vancouver Island Motorsport Circuit and our facilities are a beacon of modern architecture and track design that does not shy away from any comparison anywhere in the world. Our safe operations since we opened our doors on June 6, 2016 is another testament to our team and their drive for perfection.
Local, fresh and tasty are attributes of food and beverages we all appreciate and look for when we travel to Italy and other regions in the world where food is more than just something you eat to fill up. We have the same philosophy of sourcing locally grown produce, meats, fish and ingredients at the Paddock Lounge.
As Vancouver Island is a place with incredible farms, we have the luxuries of growing and raising products of world class standards. We are proud to prepare them to guests at the Paddock Lounge overlooking the Vancouver Island Motorsport Circuit.
Some of our suppliers are even located down the road from the Circuit like Andy Johnson and his team at Averill Creek Winery, where our non-driving guests are able to spend a few hours indulging in wine tastings to sample some of his outstanding local wines. Averill Creek is also a stable wine at the Villa Eyrie Resort and they are the only Canadian winery to receive a medal at the 2017 Global Pinot Noir Masters! To read the full article, click here.
We are working closely with our partner farmers and growers to bring even more locally grown food to our guests, not just at the Paddock Lounge, but also at the Villa Eyrie Resort, our partner hotel.
Giving back to Local Charities
The Vancouver Island Motorsport Circuit is proud to call Vancouver Island home. Over the years, we have made numerous long lasting relationships within the community as the GAIN Dealer Group and now we are happy to include the Cowichan District as part of our home. Many of our clients have shared their passion and commitment regarding the addition of the track in the area and we would like to thank them all for their continued support. Whether we’re supporting a local women’s group, or fundraising for the Cowichan District Hospital Foundation to build their much needed new facility, volunteers and the corporate sector should work hand in hand to enhance our Island lifestyle.
We are fortunate to be able to lend our assistance to those who work every day in making our Island a better place for us all. Here are just a few of the ones we’ve supported in the last 12 months.
Sound and Noise Policy
The Vancouver Island Motorsport Circuit was made aware in the summer of 2016 that some of the neighbouring property owners and tenants had complained about the noise coming from vehicles driving on the Circuit.
The operating GAIN Dealer Group took these complaints very seriously and contacted Wakefield Acoustics (an RWDI Company), North America’s largest noise measuring specialist, to perform a noise study for the operations of the Circuit. They conducted the sound study with the following device; Soundtrack LXT 1 by Larson Davis a PCB Piezotronics Div.
This study was completed on October 13th, 2016 and a complete report was shared with the community of North Cowichan.
