As a member of the B.C. Custom Car Association since 1951, Ron was deeply involved in building Mission Raceway, in 1965. Ron managed the track until it was sold in 1978 to the District of Mission for an industrial park. Part of that deal gave the club the property for a new motorsport facility and promised government help to prepare the site. But, along the way, the politicians forgot their promises, and Ron Farmer led the battle all the way to the Ombudsman’s office of the B.C. provincial government and to the Supreme Court. Today, the new Mission Raceway Park is thriving. And Ron Farmer was still managing it up until the end of ’95.
