With the road course paving now complete, Shoes Line Painting have spent the last week at the Circuit completing the kerbs and lines on the track. What a difference the track lines, the painted kerbs and the painted verges have made.
Some people want it to happen, some wish it would happen, others make it happen. On October 27th, we made it one step closer to making this vision of the Motorsport Circuit happen.
Last Thursday, we had the pleasure of hosting a small delegation from Mercedes-Benz and AMG. We were able to show them the new partner hotel and the Vancouver Island Motorsport Circuit in its current state.
On October 27, 2015, the next significant step toward making our vision come to life will be realized with the laying of the road surface onto the meticulously prepared aggregate base course.
On Thursday October 15th, our friends at Rudi & Company, world renowned automotive restorer and former owner of Pacific Competition Developments, joined us for an exclusive look at the current progress of the Vancouver Island Motorsport Circuit.
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.
In the short time since our previous update, the Clubhouse has quickly risen from its initial forms. Brickwork has now risen to the second-story level.
Survey work and form construction are nearly complete for the corner kerbing. Tilke Engineering has designed the VIMOR circuit to FIA standards, which provides precise instructions pertaining to the layout of the circuit, including such details as the kerbs.
It’s clear to see what Tilke GMBH & Co had in mind when they designed the circuit. Forms to create the curbing will begin to be placed within the next week. The track will then receive a light “crush” topping (a light aggregate) prior to final grading.
Recognizing that time is perhaps the most valuable resource, our membership subscriptions are designed to reflect the commitments of our members, and the opportunities they anticipate in being able to immerse themselves in the Vancouver Island Motorsport Resort amenities.
