The Greater Vancouver Motorsport Pioneers Society (GVMPS) is a group of motorsport enthusiasts from various motorsport activities.

The GVMPS is incorporated under the Societies Act of the province of British Columbia.

Our goal is to recognize and record the contributions of those who were pioneers of motorsport in this region.

Inductees are selected in either of two categories:

Pioneers

Individuals who personally contributed greatly to the sport as competitors, drivers, team owners or in other direct roles.

Supporters

Individuals, organizations, and others who provided the necessary support for the Pioneers and the sport in general to flourish.

The Greater Vancouver Motorsport Pioneers Society encourages nominations and suggestions from the motorsport public and our base of inductees. If you know of anyone, or an organization, whom you feel has contributed to early motorsport in the Greater Vancouver area please let us know.
We are looking for people from all forms of motorsport including: oval, drag, power boats, motorcycle, sports car, hot rods and custom cars, and any other motorized sport. If it is motorsport, and it happened in the Greater Vancouver area, we want to know about the pioneers.

The Society needs help in identifying nominees and gathering information on them. While the committee has considerable knowledge, we definitely do not know it all.

We are constantly improving and updating our yearbook. Any contributions of information and photographs will be greatly appreciated. Photographs will be copied and originals promptly returned.
