The Vancouver Island Motocross Association (VIMX) and member clubs Nanaimo, Alberni and Tri-Port Motocross Associations, are
excited to announce the Island Schedule for 2017. This year we're
hosting a single 10 round series from April through October. Like the past few years, most race
weekends will be single rounds with a practice day on Saturday and racing on Sunday. The
exceptions to this are the Tri-Port race weekends which are double-headers with practice days on Saturday and racing on Sunday and holiday Monday.
weekend format is practice day from 10am to 3pm. Early sign-up is usually available on practice day evening. On race day, sign-up is from 7am to 7:45am, rider's meeting (mandatory) at
8am, practice at 8:30am, followed by racing. Racing consists of morning
and afternoon races in each class with a short lunch break between.
VIMX encourages our fellow
Mainland riders to come race our Island events when schedules allow. We
also encourage our Island riders to attend Mainland events when

VIMX member clubs are also planning many other events throughout the
year including open houses, riding schools, evening Summer Series racing
and Endurocross races. Once events and dates are finalized they will be
posted on the VIMX and individual club websites.
It takes an enormous amount of time and effort to plan, promote,
organize and run motocross race series and other events in the regions.
We want to thank in advance all the people that take precious time from
their already busy lives so that we can all enjoy our great sport.
Please remember to actively support these volunteers and consider
helping out if you can at the region level, clubs and/or races. We're
all looking forward to another fun and exciting season of riding and
racing on the Island and abroad.
