Report from Southern Europe!

Two of our tireless international correspondents, Ann Peters and Roger Salomon, prepare for another arduous assignment; this time in the wild streets of Monaco.

Posted: July 23, 2018

The VRCBC has always had a dedicated group of photo-journalists who never stop globe-trotting in order to provide us with the latest news from the world of Vintage motorsport.

Our most recent report has just been submitted by Ann Peters and Roger Salomon, who generously volunteered to attend both the Monaco Grand Prix Historique and the Villa d’Este 2018, so that the other VRCBC members wouldn’t have to!

Thanks Ann and Roger; we are looking forward to your next assignment.

VRCBC correspondents always travel in style! This is the view from Ann and Roger’s villa with one of their yachts at the dock in the background …….. or maybe not! 😉

Even motoring correspondents have to include a few ‘touristy’ photos.

Hot Racing at Mission!

Gunther Ruppel earned his senior race licence on Saturday and then he and his faithful ’60 Bugeye Sprite proceeded to disappear (ahem) from the rest of the grid on Sunday! – Brent Martin photo

It wasn’t just the racing that was hot at the SCCBC’s fourth event of the season over the July 14th – 15th weekend; it was really warm out there!

The Vintage racers were out on the Sunday as usual, with some of the cars (and some drivers too!) showing the effects of the heat. Nevertheless, it was fun. The complete results are available on the CACC #4 Results page on the SCCBC web site (here).

Once again, thanks to Brent Martin for the photos below. You can find all of his albums on his web site (here).

The next Vintage racing at the Mission Raceway Park Road Course will be our very own British Columbia Historic Motor Races on August 17th to 19th! Watch the photos of the entrants grow on the BCHMR web site (here).
