Sunday, August 27 dawned sunny and warm for the GAIN Group’s 2017 Motor Gathering at the Vancouver Island Motorsport Circuit in Duncan – a typical day in the record–breaking summer of 2017. Perfect weather for the 500-plus cars and motorcycles who had registered.  Eleven different marques won in their respective categories, ranging from a 1970 Ford Mustang Boss 302 for Best in Show, a 1991 Nissan Figaro for Best Original and a 1918 Cadillac for Best Classic.

The Vancouver Island Section was provided a prime location in front of the Circuit clubhouse on the main straight where Ron Drane, aided by Board members, set–up our marquee tent. Eight Section members and one former one were directed to park around the marquee resulting in a wide-ranging display of models including a 190SL, 230SL, a 500E to SL550s. Proving we are a ‘multi–cultural’ Section, one member brought their Lotus Elan to show. As well, member Horst Lowell came with his brilliantly and artistically painted Smart car. Many people stopped by our marquee enabling us to engage and answer questions.  We made good use of our brochures and gave out some complimentary issues of The Star magazine. Once again, we held a draw for a free one–year membership in the MBCA; the lucky winner was Della Garvin from Saanichton.
