A day of adventure and learning at Mission Raceway.
At last a hot sunny west coast summer day at Mission Raceway and what a day to be driving performance vehicles. Boy did the cars perform!
It was fitting that the Greater Vancouver Mustang Association held their Track day at the world famous Mission Raceway. Both have an exciting and notable lineage while existing out a love for speed.
Mission Raceway has a long and notable history. Mission’s unique location at almost sea level attracted some of the most notable people in drag racing along with a number of records over the years. The Greater Vancouver Mustang association has been around since the early 80’s with a strong and active membership.
Track day was exciting as modified, classic and Roush
all performed as well as they could considering there is more than likely no race track on the planet that they air is as dense as Mission Raceway. The more dense the air the better the performance.
Key West Ford, one of the largest new and used car dealerships Vancouver brought 7 of its Roush
super cars for use by members and their customers for the day. Their amazing sound is something one could never forget as they screamed down the straight away devouring the near sea level air.
The day started with instruction by the pro driving team at Driving Unlimited of Pitt Meadows, BC – the same folks the teach police, fire and ambulance drivers as well as performance auto clinics for BMW.. Class instruction focused on how to drive a performance vehicle followed by lots and lots of track time. Instructors switched up their vehicles to give each and every one of the participants valuable driving instruction.
According to Greg Balmer
Performance Canadian GM the event was over attended and over sold. Key West Ford, one of the largest new and used car dealerships Vancouver brought 7 of its Roush
super cars for use by members and their customers. Their amazing sound is something one could never forget as they screamed down the straight away devouring the near sea level air.
Overall the day was a huge success. The vehicles were running fast and hard. People overall learned a lot about speed and safe driving while almost endless track time.
