Well, I'm not sure if anybody is aware of it yet but when I was at the local bike show I saw a booth for the new track already in construction. It will be in Merrit which is about a 2 hour drive from Vancouver (less rain there)and may be completed by years end. There will be a 3 point oval and roadcourse which can be linked together or seperate. In addition a convention center/hotel/cart track are also being built. This is great news for us in BC who haven't had a real race track since westwood had housing construction. From the looks of things it seems to be top notch with sand traps, grass runoff fields and some really good elevation changes. Even a laguna seca type of corkscrew. Indications are good and well it's been long awaited. I can't wait to take my NSX and Ducati !!!!
