We are looking forward to a great turnout. A special feature of this year’s show, is a unique opportunity for show entrants to learn more about the Vancouver Island Motorsport Circuit. Vehicles can register at the Circuit, stage in the parking area, then be given a rare opportunity to take a ‘LAP of Honour’ around the track before departing by cavalcade down Highway 18 and into the Town of Lake Cowichan to A & W for the show. We’re encouraging the public to bring a lawn chair and watch the cavalcade as it come into Lake Cowichan at can approximately 10:45am.”
