About the WCRA

The Wine Country Racing Association is a non-profit society, run by a board of directors. The group’s main goal is to provide a safe, back-to-the-basics outlet for those with a need for speed – in other words, to remove some of the temptation to drag race on our public roads.

The WCRA is a volunteer-run organization and is always in need of more help. Contact any of the directors to get involved.

The History

The Wine Country Racing Association was established in 2002 , in order to establish a location to give automotive enthusiasts a legal outlet to race their cars as opposed to street racing, which is dangerous and illegal.

Interested members of a local car club called “The Coachmasters” joined in, and the group was formed.

With money raised, the group purchased a professional Christmas Tree Starting System from Race America of California, which is capable of displaying reaction time, red light starts and ET.

June 25, 2006 was the first 1/8 mile drag race held on the newly-paved Osoyoos Airport, now known as the Richter Pass Motorplex.
