The VRCBC was again part of the Confederation of Autosport Car Clubs – better known as the CACC – display at this year’s Vancouver International Autoshow. The show ran from Wednesday, March 23rd to Sunday, March 27th at the Vancouver Convention Centre.

The CACC once again secured a high profile location and had a very impressive display (check out the photos below). Last year was considered to be a great success and this year was even better. Many show visitors stopped to look at our racing cars and to talk about all forms of amateur motorsport, including our favourite, Vintage racing.

Update: Initial indications are that over 100,000 people visited the Autoshow over the five days, and that approximately 1,000 (!) of them submitted an entry form to the draw for a free registration in the SCCBC’s very popular Driver Training Program to be held this coming June at the Mission Raceway Road Course. 

A big thank you from the VRCBC to the CACC for organizing the display, to all those who provided their cars – and karts – and to all those members of the various clubs who contributed their time to ‘work’ the show.

The VRCBC and our good friends from META (Motorsport & Emergency Turnworkers Association) shared a booth at the 18th Annual BC Classic & Custom Car Show at the Fraser Valley Trade and Exhibition Centre (more commonly known as TRADEX) in Abbotsford. We had three racing cars on display: Alan McColl’s Lotus Cortina and Tiga Formula Ford, and Phil Roney’s TVR Vixen.

The show was open to the public during Friday, Saturday and Sunday of the Easter weekend. We would like to thank the many motorsports enthusiasts – old and new – who stopped by to talk about road racing at Mission Raceway. See you at the track!

There are a few more photos posted on the META and VRCBC Facebook pages.

The VRCBC teamed up with our friends at META (the Motorsport Emergency & Turnworkers Association) for a display at the big BC Classic and Custom Car Show at the TRADEX Exhibition Centre in Abbotsford. The Show was open from Friday April 19th to Sunday April 21st.

The booth featured three all-out racing cars: the former Speedvision World Challenge Corvette C5 of Tom Johnston Racing, the beautifully prepared and very fast Vintage Formula Ford Tiga of Alan McColl and a newcomer on the local scene, the 1965 Fournier-M​arcadier Barquette 1.6 litre sports racer of Ian Wood. (These photos were taken late at night before the setup was completed.)

Thank you to the many show-goers who dropped by the booth and said hello; we hope to see you again next year. And a very big ‘Thank You’ from the VRCBC to the many META folks who showed up (in race day uniform) to help us promote road racing at the Mission Raceway Park Road Course. The next big event is of course, our BC Historic Motor Races (here) on the May 25th – 26th weekend.
