I'm in Victoria if you count that? Halfway anyways, it's got Vancouver in the name of the island at least...

Relatively new to the West Coast myself, so if anyone has suggestions for good places to check out, I'm open to suggestion.

Cheers!

I think I've spotted you near Alderbridge a few times when I get off work.

Hey everyone, I'm in Metro Vancouver as well -- would eventually like to get into track days but for now looking for a group to cruise with and get to know the scene a bit better.

Do you guys know of any groups who do drives into the interior or down towards Seattle or even Portland?

Hi All,

New here, recently picked up a LBB 2018 BMW M2 LCI as a DD. First time BMW owner, loving the M2. Few small quirks i need to get used to.

It always puts a smile on my face to see another M2 on the road. It looks like we have plenty in the lower mainland.

Vancouver Area Dealers Feedback

I bought my 18 M2 DCT at Langley BMW Open Road, and have been back a few times for service. It is ok but they don't see very good yet, still unprofessional. What are others experiences?

I think it would be cool to meet once the weather gets nicer. I wouldn't mind checking out what modifications people do. I'm thinking about shorter springs but I'm worried about ride quality.

Hi All,
I'd definitely be up for a meet as well. Been active around the forums but never noticed this thread before. I've got a 2017 BSM M2.

Anybody sign up for any track events?
I'm going to the ridge with TSS in July and probably again in September, but haven't signed up for the second one yet.
Not a big fan of Mission, but I might go just so I can go to A27 with VCMC.

Anyone interested in a private event to VIMC (Vancouver Island Motorsport Circuit) on 30Jun2019? Unfortunately, NO FIRST TIMERS. 1-2 spots left, $435 with lunch included. It is by the same organizers as Tss x Revscene track days group. If interested send me your details and phone# so I can intro you into the group chat for the event. Thanx.

I have May and Jun registered with Tss x Revscene but I will probably see you in Jul and Sept as well.

Check out the events Dom mentioned with TSS x Revscene, Jul and Sept still has room for first timers. The Ridge has has a lot of run off so going off track is usually not as big of a deal.

275 usd with typically 3 level groups and 20 min each run. They will get you an instructor for first timers, no extra cost. Track day at The Ridge Motorsports Park, Road Course, Shelton, WA. About 3-4 hr drive from Vancouver.

Track is around double the length of Mission. A lot more wider corners and longer straights for a car like the M2 to stretch its legs.

It's a fun group, check it out.

I can only emphasize what acl26 mentioned above. The track is way better than Mission so you get much more for your money. Some people drive down the day off to save money on hotel costs, but I don't recommend that. The ridge is close to Olympia and there are several descent priced hotels in the area and a Casino about half way between Olympia and the ridge.

The TSS group is also a great group of guys, I was able to get people to do ride alongs as much or as little as I wanted when I first started.
