Scion FR-S Launch Event


  • Scion FR-S Launch Event

    Perhaps you have followed the development of this car since day 1. Perhaps you have read every single automotive review out there on the FR-S, and watched numerous video reviews about how great the FR-S is both on and off the track. Or perhaps you have never heard of this 200hp, horizontally opposed boxer engine RWD sports car until now.

    Regardless of which camp you fall into, why endlessly analyze the car on paper and via YouTube, or wonder what it is capable of when you can test drive the car and find out for yourself? The Scion FR-S launch -- hosted by VCMC -- is the event you DO NOT want to miss. Come join us for an exciting day of autocross on the full 1000' x 500' pad at the BC Driving Center. Scion Canada is bringing 2 of their 2013 Scion FR-S to the pad for VCMC members to test on course.
