There are a few reasons why we are excited to host the annual Motor Gathering here on Vancouver Island.
First of all, we would like to organise a great event that raises funds for deserving charities in our communities.
Secondly moving forward, we would like to establish this event as the premier collector car show in western Canada and encourage people to go after their passion owning and restoring a collectable automobile.
As the first step in establishing the annual Vancouver Island Motor Gathering for collectable automobiles and motorcycles as one of the premier events in Western Canada, we will introduce for the first time ever a purse for the category winners and for the best in show.
The award winners in each category will receive a $500* while the best in show will win $1,000, sponsored and funded by the GAIN Dealer Group. Those funds are awarded together with the winning trophy and it will reward those individuals for the countless hours of restoration and preparation for events like this.
We wish all entrants the best of success and can’t wait to see the winning cars at the 2015 Vancouver Island Motor Gathering.
*A minimum standard applies for all category winners: The winning cars must drive and run well, but might have some incorrect parts. These cars are ready for a long tour without excuses, and the casual passerby will not find any visual flaws. “Good” is the one word description that will represent the minimum standard required of the winning vehicles. Please note we reserve the right to not award a winner within a specific category if they do not fit within these standards. For example, if there is only one car in the category, it does not make that entrant the automatic winner. The vehicle will still be required to have the applicable criteria in order to qualify and win.
