MEGA 12 ROUND CANADIAN ARENACROSS CHAMPIONSHIP CONFIRMED
For the first time since 1993 indoor dirt bike racing will return to the Cloverdale Agriplex Arena at the Cloverdale Fairgrounds in Surrey, British Columbia. Future West are also pleased to announce that a new ventilation system is in the works for Chilliwack Heritage Park which has played host to the Canadian Arenacross championship for the past 12 years.
With the sale of the Future West British Supercross Championship, Future West is now able to direct it’s focus entirely on the Canadian Arenacross Championship for the first time in over 15 years. Future West’s immediate goal was to secure more events in the Lower Mainland of BC which the company has done with a scheduled 12 round Canadian Arenacross Championship visiting Cloverdale and Chilliwack this winter.
John Hellam owner of Future West initiated the Cloverdale Arenacross as a director for the Lower Mainland Club back in 1987. In 1993 the venue closed down to motocross. Future West stepped up to the promotion’s plate with the Abbotsford Arenacross events in 1994 before moving on to Chilliwack Heritage Park in 2001 where Arenacross has successfully continued for 11 years. While Chilliwack Heritage Park has been an exceptional venue for hosting Arenacross events the new ventilation system that is set to be installed will make a significantly better experience for Chilliwack spectators.
“We are very excited to be returning Arenacross to the Cloverdale Agriplex and of course Chilliwack Heritage Park. Its been a long time since Arenacross roared inside the Cloverdale Agrifair Arena and we are confident the Lower Mainland is more than ready for its return ” said John Hellam of Future West.
“For me it is especially exciting, as a founding member of the Lower Mainland Motocross Club the venue brings back a lot of great memories and stories as both my sons grew up racing in Cloverdale. Now I get to see my grandson race in the venue that essentially started a true Arenacross series in British Columbia. It should he a great reunion of old friends and competitors not to mention some great racing” Continued Hellam.
Although Supercross plans for the Cloverdale Stetson Bowl did not come together the Winter indoor events are firmly planted for this years Canadian Arenacross Championship on October 18th and 19th and February 8th and 9th
