First Race Day in the Books!

Phil Pidcock brought out his beautifully prepared 1965 Triumph Spitfire for its first race weekend. He quickly got down to some very competitive times before being sidelined by drive line gremlins. Next time Phil! - Brent Martin photo

The first CACC-sanctioned race weekend of the 2016 season at Mission Raceway Park Road Course was held on April 16-17. The SCCBC named this the ‘McRae Memorial Weekend’ in honour of long time volunteer and 2010 Hall of Fame inductee Jim McRae, who passed away earlier this year. The complete results for the weekend are available on the SCCBC website (here).

The Vintage REVS races were held as usual, on the Sunday. The Vintage and Open Wheel / Sports Racer results are also available in PDF under the 2016 Season menu on this web site (here).

Check out Brent Martin’s photos of the action on Sunday below. (Thanks Brent!) The next races are less than two weeks away. Registration for the SCCBC’s ‘Spring Sprint Weekend’ on April 30 – May 1 is already open (here). See you there!

Driver Training Entry Opens

Updated: April 6, 2016

The SCCBC has opened the registration for their second (and last) Driver Training Program of 2016. The classroom session will be on Saturday, June 18 with the on-track sessions at Mission Raceway Road Course over the June 25-26 weekend.

This SCCBC Program is generally acknowledged to be one of the best values available anywhere. It is a great opportunity to find out what it is like to drive smoothly and quickly on a real race track. And if you should decide to go road racing – whether Vintage or otherwise – this is the best and most cost-effective way to get on the first step of that ladder.

Go to the Driver Training page on the SCCBC web site (here) for more information or go directly to MotorsportReg.com (here) for the online registration.

See you at the track!

The VRCBC was again part of the Confederation of Autosport Car Clubs – better known as the CACC – display at this year’s Vancouver International Autoshow. The show ran from Wednesday, March 23rd to Sunday, March 27th at the Vancouver Convention Centre.

The CACC once again secured a high profile location and had a very impressive display (check out the photos below). Last year was considered to be a great success and this year was even better. Many show visitors stopped to look at our racing cars and to talk about all forms of amateur motorsport, including our favourite, Vintage racing.

Update: Initial indications are that over 100,000 people visited the Autoshow over the five days, and that approximately 1,000 (!) of them submitted an entry form to the draw for a free registration in the SCCBC’s very popular Driver Training Program to be held this coming June at the Mission Raceway Road Course. 

A big thank you from the VRCBC to the CACC for organizing the display, to all those who provided their cars – and karts – and to all those members of the various clubs who contributed their time to ‘work’ the show.

The VRCBC ‘assigns’ (ahem) its ‘correspondents’ to race events all over the world! This weekend, Gunter Pichler left his well-known Vintage racing XKE at home and attended the HSR (Historic Sportscar Racing Ltd.) races supporting the Mobil1 12 Hours of Sebring in Florida. He sent us a few photos of the Vintage action. Thanks Gunter!
