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.

The VRCBC held its always-popular Annual Gala & Banquet on Saturday, November 18th at the Delta Town & Country Inn. A good time was had by all. There was even some (semi) serious bench racing and planning for the 2018 season, in between the laughs!

Thank you to Past President Tedd McHenry for (most of the time) managing the evening and to Charlie Baird for taking the photographs.

Our ‘Hombre’ is a Class Winner!

The VRCBC’s very own ‘hombre‘, Karlo Flores has returned from the 2017 edition of La Carrera Panamericana with a class win and a sixteenth overall finish. In 2016, Karlo and his co-driver Juan Carlo Salgado were second in class by only four minutes (story here).

This year, they found a five minute advantage during the seven days, which was just enough because the second place car was only one minute behind them! The final results are available here.

The team’s video (here) provides an excellent idea of what an enjoyable event this is. Congratulations Karlo!
