About Us

The Prince George Automobile Racing Association was founded in 1951 to assist and govern safe competitive auto racing. The association is non-profit so the earnings are put back into the facility for maintenance and improvements. Over the years PGARA has made several changes for the safety and comfort of the spectators and racers


Location

The race track is located on the East side of town across from the Airport. Just head out Highway 16 East (First Avenue) to the top of airport hill. We are located on the corner of the Old Caribou Highway and Highway 16 East.

Mandate

PGARA' s Mandate is to provide and place where safe and responsible racing can take place first and foremost. In both facilitating and offering this to our Members, we have an additional goal to present to our fans a great event in a well prepared facility. The Directors believe this is essential to fans long term support and growth. We want the experience at PGARA to be entertaining, while offering the spectator as many services and amenities as we can. This will support the mandate of increasing spectator attendance to double or triple present levels. PGARA is driven by both the evolution of it's classes and the facilities that we presently have and make changes in the the best interests of progression of racing in western Canada. As the association grows, the demand for improvements and promotion has been the forefront of challenges for the organization. Where the 'not for profit' advantage of the facility puts money back into the track, the Board of Directors work to ensure the income of the track has a corporate attitude.


Volunteers

Prince George race enthusiasts volunteer their time and effort to assist in the normal operation of the facility. Many of these volunteers have been with the association for many years and have contributed greatly to the maintenance and care of the track. Race days provide a number of responsibilities that are filled by Directors and Volunteers. Flag person, gate keepers, spotters, and more including the new addition or the Prince George Rescue Society as Emergency crew will keep PGARA at the top of it's game.
