It seems like only yesterday that the racing season at the Mission Raceway Park Road Course was kicking off and now we are (almost) down to the last event. The SCCBC’s last event for 2017 will be held over the October 14-15 weekend. Our Vintage racers will be hitting the track on the Sunday as usual; looking to collect some final REVS points.

Registration is already open on MotorsportReg.com (here) and the full schedule and other information will be available on the SCCBC web site Schedule page (here) soon.

See you at the track!

Initial Canopy Tests Go Well

The VRCBC took advantage of the BC Historic Motor Races to carry out some initial testing of the new clear cockpit canopy being proposed for introduction with the 2018 Open Wheel Vintage Racing rules on April 1st.  The design work was done by the (in)famous ‘Arold’s Engineering of Chipping Sodbury.

Further information will become available once Tom Johnston Racing completes final wind tunnel testing in North Vancouver.
