The VRCBC again had a display at the 2017 All British Field Meet (the 32nd edition!) at Vancouver’s VanDusen Botanical Garden on Saturday, May 20th. The weather was perfect and there was a very large crowd enjoying the more than 600 cars and motorcycles. Many of them stopped by to ask about our three cars, and about road racing at our home track, the Mission Raceway Park Road Course.

Thank you to Cam Hutchins for providing us with the above photo. He has posted over 1,000(!) from the ABFM on his web site (here). Be sure to check them out.

See you next year!
