Vancouver Island Motorsport Circuit

Current Status (June 23, 2017): the owners of VIMC (GAIN Group) have retained an international acoustical engineering firm to study noise levels coming from VIMC and recommend noise mitigation measures. The Municipality will be providing input to VIMC and the acoustical engineering firm through this process. Information about the timing and process for a noise study will be posted on this page as soon as it is available.

The Vancouver Island Motorsport Circuit (VIMC) opened in June 2016 on a 46-acre parcel of land on the Cowichan Valley Highway, adjacent to the Municipality's western boundary with the Cowichan Valley Regional District.

Residents in the vicinity of VIMC have expressed concern about noise emanating from the facility. The Municipality has committed to working with the Sahtlam Neighourhood Association (SNA) and VIMC towards noise reduction measures. This page contains background information and status updates from the Municipality.
