One of the many things that makes the Vancouver Island Motorsport Circuit uniquely special is the selected group of guest instructors we have as part of our team. Max Papis, Kevin Schwantz, Kees Nierop, Peter Baljet, Brody Goble and Tony Morris Jr. are all working with our team of instructors to offer members an ever changing and exciting time on Vancouver Island.
While the Coquihalla Highway from Vancouver to the interior of British Columbia and the connector between Merritt and Penticton are expecting up to 30 cm of snow tonight, the Vancouver Island Motorsport Circuit is in full speed with our Saturday Members Day in the eye of the storm and at 12 degrees Celsius.
When the GAIN Dealer Group first began to consider the this project, the decision was taken to seek advice and instruction from the very best in the field. Tilke GMBH & Co, the world’s foremost designer of race and test facilities, was invited to assist.
Over the next few weeks the circuit will take on its permanent appearance. Tilke Engineering’s design requires that the grading and leveling is referenced at least every metre and compared to the design drawings. While time consuming, this attention to detail will result in a perfect track surface.
