Posted: December 18, 2017

The VRCBC is very pleased to announce that the expected dates for the 2018 British Columbia Historic Motor Races (BCHMR) will be the weekend of August 18th and 19th, 2018 at our usual track, the Mission Raceway Park Road Course, Mission, BC. There will also be a Practice Day (open to all racing cars; not just Vintage) on Friday August 17th.

The BCHMR provides an action-packed weekend with plenty of racing for all classes of Open Wheel / Sports Racers and Closed Wheel racing cars at a very affordable entry fee. Check the BCHMR’s own web site (here) for regular updates.

We wish everyone a great Holiday Season and we look forward to seeing you in August.

And mark your calendars now!

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.
