The 2015 BC Historic Motor Races are now history! The 28th running of this annual VRCBC event was again held at the Mission Raceway Park Road Course over the Saturday, August 22nd – Sunday, August 23rd weekend. A big thank you from the VRCBC to all of our sponsors, fans and supporters, and of course, the entrants.

Update: The BCHMR’s own web site (here) now has the full results for the weekend.

We have received hundreds of photos from many photographers. (Thank you!) A lot of them will eventually be posted on the BCHMR web site but in the meantime, check them out on the VRCBC Facebook Group (here) and the BCHMR Facebook page (here).

Another Successful BCHMR!
