I had no idea that this place existed.
$45k one off membership payment is out of my price range, but I would gladly pay a few hundred for a days use.

Just as in the UK you get penalised for speeding. Way less fixed speed cameras here.

No unlimited speed areas in BC? If you are willing to pay, yes there are..

Are there unlimited speed areas in the UK? No, not on public roads, you can use race tracks if you wish. You can be a petrol head on either side of the Atlantic..... Not really that different- well, apart from having to drive " on the wrong side of the road"

I know what you mean!
I had heard of it via my Facebook friend who has joined up- his mate owns August Motors in Kelowna...Im not much of a petrolhead but some of those cars could sway me! The 45k is probably a drop in the ocean for them...
