Bring Back the Only 1/4 mile Drag Race on Vancouver Island

Since 2001, Thunder In The Valley Drag Races have delighted generations of young and old alike.

After months of negotiation, meeting every request and requirement of The Alberni-Clayoquot Regional District, the application for the 18th Annual Thunder in the Valley Drag Races at the Alberni Valley Regional Airport was rejected without any reason given.

Thunder in The Valley generated millions of dollars in local economic benefit, inviting thousands of visitors into our community from all around the world. 

We ask for your support in securing a 5-year land use agreement at the Alberni Valley Regional Airport to allow us to continue this historic local event in 2020 and beyond.
