Island Offroad Racing was able to hold a shortened season at Alberni Motorsports Park.

The popular races returned to Alberni Motorsports park in September after almost two years away due to COVID-19 restrictions.

Another round of racing took place on Oct. 2 and 3, featuring an obstacle course, team relay and wheel to wheel racing action.

Offroad action will return to the Alberni Valley in spring 2022.
