The Westwood Motorcycle Racing Club (WMRC) began in 1959, and enjoyed many years of competitive racing at the Westwood circuit in Port Coquitlam with regional and national races being held there on a regular basis. Unfortunately, the Westwood circuit was closed in 1990 for land development, but thanks to it’s very dedicated members the WMRC was able to survive without a home track for over 10 years.

In 2001 the WMRC was invited to hold a “Test & Tune” day at Mission Raceway Park to see if it was feasible to run motorcycles on the 1.2 mile 9 turn road course. It was deemed to be safe enough for motorcycle roadracing and the first full WMRC racing season started in 2002. Yearly improvements to Mission Raceway Park including the re-configuration of Turn 1 and the deployment of Airfence in a few key corners has resulted in a safer, faster and more enjoyable track.

The club has enjoyed very exciting and competitive racing over the years with the likes of past Canadian Superbike Champions Steve Crevier & Steve Dick and World Superbike competitor Brett McCormick as well as some very fast regional racers.

The WMRC promotes fast, aggressive riding in a safe, professional and controlled environment. A sense of community responsibility is accomplished by getting motorcycle riders who may want push the limits on the street to instead “take it to the track” and raise their riding skills to a higher level.

The WMRC offers several classes of racing from Vintage motorcycles to Superbikes with everything in between.

Admission on race day is $10 per person, with children 12 and under free.
Gates are open from 8am – 6pm. Races run rain or shine!
The paddock / pit area is open to all ages where spectators can meet the racers, take pictures of the bikes, get signed racing posters, team T-shirts, hats, etc..
Practice days are free admission to everyone.

Spectators will enjoy an excellent view of the action with grandstands located at the most exciting corners, close to the pits and other facilities. For an even better view of the action people can sign up to be a corner marshal, which includes deploying flags, picking up crashed motorcycles and communicating on the radio with race control.

The WMRC invites everyone to come witness the thrills and spills of motorcycle roadracing action at British Columbia’s one and only premier roadracing circuit.

We would like to mention our good friends at the Sports Car Club of British Columbia and ask you to support them by attending their races also taking place at Mission Raceway Park.
