The VRCBC again had a display at the 2018 All British Field Meet (This was the 33rd edition!) at Vancouver’s VanDusen Botanical Garden on Saturday, May 19th. The weather was good and there was the usual large crowd of enthusiasts checking out the many classic British cars and motorcycles.

The legendary Austin Healey ‘Bugeye’ Sprite was one of this year’s featured marques and Gunther Ruppel’s bright red racing version was very prominent in our display, right next to the ‘main road’. We are all looking forward to seeing Gunther really ‘wheelin’ it’ at Mission this season!

Check out Brent Martin’s other photos of our display below, and his full gallery of 2018 ABFM shots on his web site (here).

The weather was great for the season’s second race weekend at the Mission Raceway Park Road Course on May 5th-6th. A good time was had by all!

The Vintage results are available here; the complete results for the weekend are available on the SCCBC web site (here). We have a break in the action now until the third event – the June 23rd-24th weekend. That will give everybody a good chance to get some of those new ‘go faster bits’ on their cars!

Thanks to Brent Martin for more great photos of our Vintage action (see below) and check out all of his photos on his web site (here).

See you at the track in June!

The First Race Weekend is Done!

‘Turn up the volume!’ Here’s a view we don’t often see. Dennis Repel (’74 Chevrolet Camaro) leads Ian Thomas (’70 BMW 2002), Peter Valkenburg (’69 Porsche 911) and Steven Allaire (’92 Porsche Carrera Cup ) into Mission’s Turn 4 during one of the day’s great Vintage battles. – Brent Martin photo

The April 21st-22nd weekend was a very busy one for the VRCBC. Some members were ‘working’ our display at the BC Classic & Custom Car Show in Abbotsford, while everybody else was ‘playing’ at the race track!

The 2018 race season at Mission Raceway Park Road Course began under sunny skies with the first Sports Car Club of BC (SCCBC) event, sanctioned by the CACC. As usual, our Vintage REVS series races were held on the Sunday. The Vintage results are available here; the complete results for the weekend are available on the SCCBC web site (here).

And now that spring has finally arrived, it’s time to get that grass cut, as VRCBC Vice President Paul Haym so ably demonstrated with his highly efficient Datsun 510 ‘mower’ in Turn 5!

More of Brent Martin’s photos of the Vintage action are shown below. (Thanks Brent.) The rest of Brent’s photos of the whole weekend of racing are now posted on his website (here).
