is committed to making this a world class racing venue for many classes of racing cars, vintage cars and motor cycles. There has been a tremendous amount of interest shown by many groups in Western Canada throughtout the planning process, and we are looking forward to having
the track operational in early 2005.

The Motor Racing facility at Active Mountain Resort is located at the south entry to the city, using the excellent Coquihalla Toll Highway from Hope, and the Trans Canada Highway #1 from Vancouver."
