The Sports Car Club of B.C. was founded as a non-profit society in 1951. Members first raced at Abbotsford Airport from 1952 to 1956. In 1957 the members raised funds through debentures and built a full service road course in Coquitlam B.C, on Crown Land leased from the Provincial Government. For the next 32 years the club operated the track known as Westwood Motorsport Park, and affectionately referred to as Mountain High Racing. Westwood gained recognition throughout North America playing host to such greats as Gilles Villeneuve, Bobby Rahal, and Michael Andretti. The annual Atlantic series races often drew over 10,000 spectators. Sadly, the exciting facility was closed in 1990 to make way for the Westwood Plateau housing development.
In July '94, the Club opened its current racing venue, the road course at Mission Raceway Park, River’s Edge Road Course, thanks to the support of the BC Custom Car Association and Molson Indy Vancouver. The track, a tight 2km - 7 turn course, provided a challenge to drivers and offered exceptional viewing for spectators. Over the next 8 years the track was expanded to 9 turns and 2 large grandstands provide a view of over 80% of the race track. Each year has seen larger racing grids, and a surge in club membership. The two Race Driver Training courses provided by the club each year are most often over-subscribed. The 2002 racing season saw the birth of the WestCoast SportsCar Championship. A highly competitive series for closed wheel senior drivers, which exceeded organizers expectations, the series was well supported by sponsors and spectators.
The Club's commitment to safe, competitive road racing in an atmosphere of sportsmanship ensures a great racing experience for drivers, crew & spectators alike. New drivers & fans are always welcome.
