The VRCBC was well represented at SOVREN’s Fall Finale at Pacific Raceways in Kent over the September 24th – 25th weekend. SOVREN (Society of Vintage Racing Enthusiasts) is the VRCBC’s ‘cousin’ south of the border. The close relationship between the two clubs goes back many years and members often race in each other’s events.

The Fall Finale at Pacific Raceways was SOVREN’s last road race event of the 2016 season. This year, several VRCBC racers attended.

  • #37 – Shelby Clark, yellow 1969 Alfa Romeo GTV 1750
  • #40 – Roger van der Marel, green 1967 Alfa Romeo GTV
  • #46 – Phil Pidcock, blue 1965 Triumph Spitfire
  • #59 – Karlo Flores, white 1959 Austin Healey ‘Bugeye’ Sprite
  • #62 – Bob Beauchemin, 1962 ‘psychedelic’ Mini
  • #63 – Tim Pickstone, green 1963 Porsche 356C
  • #71 – Ken Butler, red 1964 Lotus Elan
  • #85 – Larry Sandham, green 1985 Mini Vauxhall
  • #260 – Steve Clark, yellow 1959 Elva Courier

It was a very hot weekend! The sun shone and the race action was great. And the VRCBC and its friends raised significant funds for the BCHMR ‘Charity of Choice’, The Mission Hospice Society. A big ‘Thank You’ to all of the racers and their crews, the officials and other volunteers, our sponsors, and of course the many spectators who made it all possible and so much fun.

Check out the full race report, including results, photos and videos on the BCHMR web site (here).
