Due to ongoing construction and upgrading of the Alberni Valley Airport we will not be able to host the 1/4 mile drag race event as it has been for the past 15 years, so the City of Port Alberni has offered to close a portion of Stamp Avenue again this year to enable the AVDRA to host an 1/8 mile event on the city streets! This location enables the AVDRA the opportunity to host a truly unique event for racers and spectators – street legal drag racing on city streets!

Date: August 11-12, 2018
Location: race to be run on Stamp Avenue in front of the Catalyst Pulp Mill
Racer parking: please do not line up prior to 8am on Friday as there is no room on the entrance street and you may be ticketed for illegal parking.
Spectator access and viewing: entrance is from Victoria Quay, Catalyst Pulp Mill entrance, south end of Stamp Avenue.
Admission: spectators $20 per day or $35 for 2 day pass; children under 12 free with adult

Classes and class limit numbers have been updated because of location and space – check the Race Classes page for more info.

BURNOUT CONTESTt: The AVDRA is having a burnout contest at the burnout box on Stamp Avenue on Friday, August 10 at approx. 7 pm. Pre-registration is $30. Go see Dave at PacificWest Home Solutions at 3540 3rd Ave. to pre-register. Registration at the gate is $40. Spectator fee is $5. Entry will be from the Redford end of Stamp Ave. There are some rules. The tech crew will be on hand and there will be a time limit on the burnouts. Disqualification will be at the discretion of the judges. Thanks again.
