Flat Track BC began hosting flat track races in 2013 at Historic O’Keefe Ranch, located in Vernon, BC. That first summer, it was basically 8 friends who raced three times. It was fun so we kept doing it! Then, in 2015, Vancouver Flat Track Club began hosting flat track races at Pemberton Speedway and, a year later, Logan Lake Dirt Riders had their first race at Merritt Speedway. Now there are loads of friends from all over BC who have their hearts set on the growth of the sport in our fine province.
Each club runs their race day slightly different, but we are all aiming for the same thing: a stellar racing experience for riders and spectators alike, with classes to accommodate most anyone that comes through the gate (as long as their bike and gear meet safety requirements!).
As a three-track collective, we held our first BC Flat Track Championship Series in 2016 and look forward to the doing the same again this year. British Columbia has an amazing history of flat track racing and, we are all honored to be a part of its resurgence.
Two tracks will play host to Flat Track Canada riders clinics this year. O’Keefe’s on June 21+22 and Pemberton Speedway on June 24+25. Click here for more information and to register.
Our races could not happen without our generous sponsorship partners and outstanding volunteers. If you are interested in supporting the growth of flat tracking in BC through sponsorship or wish to volunteer at one of the races, please contact the club closest to you!
