Sports Car Club of BC
Westwood sports car racing circuit is gone, but SCCBC's web site has some history, as does Tom Johnston's book "Westwood - Everyone's Favourite Racing Circuit".)
SCCBC has a couple of vintage racing days each year.
Keith's Observations on Mission Raceway Park
There may be a stock car racing track further up the Fraser Valley, at Kent B.C. which is in the Aggassiz-Harrison area.
I understand that Langley [B.C.] Speedway is intact and there is an active effort to restart operations under "heritage park" status, but hypocritical NIMBYs object (the noise used to be there, other activities now there aren't necessarily quite).
There are short tracks inland, perhaps near Merrit for example, and to the south (a long-established one north of Mt. Vernon WA - with nice washrooms I'm told, perhaps one NE of Bellingham, and at the fairgrounds in Monroe WA).
For road racing, SIR is still there but the road course is not well tended, and there is a new track near Shelton WA.
The UBC Sports Car Club has been holding autocross (gymkana/whatever you call it ) timed races at the Pitt Meadows airport east of Vancouver - in winter weather. It has low cost of entry as less driver training and car preparation are needed than other forms of racing. The skill of the drivers can be seen easily - how else could a Dodge Neon be so quick? ;-) Click here for information from the UBC Sports Car Club. And look on the track for the black 2004 Porsche G3 and the 2003 Mercedes SLK 32 AMG roadster.
