The Vancouver Island Motocross Association (VIMX) and member clubs Nanaimo
, Campbell River
Motocross Associations, are excited to announce the Island Event Schedule for 2015. This year we're hosting a 10 round Island Championship Series in the Spring, followed by a 5 round Island Club Series in the Fall. Like the past few years, race weekends will include practice days and be single rounds. The only exception to this is the Tri-Port race weekend which is a double-header.
The race weekend format is Practice Day on Saturday from 10am to 3pm and racing on Sunday. Early sign-up is usually available on Saturday evening. On Sunday race sign-up 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.
Also for the first time in several years, there will be a true BC Championship Series! Check out the BC Championship Schedule page for details including format, dates and locations.
VIMX is also extremely excited to work with the CMRC again to host Round 2 of the 2015 Rockstar Energy Drink Motocross Nationals series on Sunday, June 7th at the Wastelands in Nanaimo. The Nationals Amateur Day and Round 8 of our Championship Series will be on Saturday, June 6th.
VIMX encourages our fellow Mainland riders to come race our Island events when schedules allow. We're working on incentives for Mainland riders to help encourage them to make the trip and come race with us – to be announced shortly. We also encourage our Island riders to attend BCMA and FutureWest Mainland events when schedules allow.

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.
