Posted: March 16, 2018

Our local motorsport sanctioning body, the CACC has secured very high profile space at the Vancouver International Auto Show for its member clubs and other BC motorsport groups to display their cars, clubs and events. The show will he held at the Vancouver Convention Centre at Canada Place.

The CACC’s objective is to showcase all facets of our sport in BC, including Slalom, Hill Climb, Time Attack, Ice Race, Road Race and (our own favourite of course!) Vintage. This year’s very big display will include many specially selected (including four Vintage) competition cars, video footage, club schedules and brochures, and other promotional material.

A special focus this year will be to show visitors how they can be involved in all of the action and have a lot of fun, without having to actually race a car. They can volunteer and be trained for flagging, communications, timing and scoring, and many other key positions.

Make sure to stop at the CACC display and say hello; and bring all of your family and friends too!

Show Hours 

Wednesday, March 28th – Noon to 9:30 PM
Thursday, March 29th – 10:00 AM to 9:30 PM
Friday, March 30th – 10:00 AM to 9:30 PM
Saturday, March 31st – 10:00 AM to 9:30 PM
Sunday, April 1st – 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM


The First VRCBC ‘Race’ of 2018!

The VRCBC kicked off the 2018 racing season with another of our very popular KartFests. This year were back running the quick, gas-powered Sodi RT8 karts at TBC Indoor Kart Racing in Richmond. We had a full grid of 12 karts and 36 drivers.

The electronic timing and scoring system had some last minute hiccups so, in true Vintage racing tradition, the twelve teams quickly resorted to ‘old school’ manual methods and ‘all was good’.

It was a fun evening for VRCBC members and their many guests. Planning is already underway for the season opening KartFest 2019 scheduled for next March.

Next up is the first ‘real’ race event at Mission Raceway Park Road Course on the April 21-22 weekend. See you there!

Last Westwood Historic Motor Races Now on YouTube!

Updated: November 26, 2017

Many of those who attended the VRCBC’s special ‘Westwood Mural Unveiling’ meeting at Mark’s Auto Body in Port Coquitlam or our Annual Banquets have asked about one of the DVD’s we have shown.

This was ‘The Last Race’, a DVD produced by Hans Sipma about the very last Vintage race event, ‘The Tenth Annual Historics Weekend’, held at Westwood over an early July weekend in 1990.

Update: Hans has now posted his video on YouTube. You can find it here. Thank you Hans!

The entry list of almost 100 cars that is included with the DVD contains many familiar names, quite a few of whom are still Vintage racing today. And you will recognize a lot of the faces too (although they are considerably younger!) when you watch it.

The DVD captures a lot of the activity and fun in the Paddock as well as having some great video of the on-track action, which features everything from classic Morgans to ‘Vettes and XKE’s, and from Formula Vees and Fords, to the beautiful 1948 Talbot Lago Grand Prix car, captured by Kane Rogers in his cover illustration.
