Third Race Weekend!

Two of the VRCBC’s top ‘draft picks’ for 2018 battle it out in the Saturday Novice Race! Ewen Dobbie (1959 Porsche 356A) and Gunther Ruppel (1960 Austin Healey ‘Bugeye’ Sprite) will be ‘graduating’ to Vintage racing very soon. We are really looking forward to having these two plus Scott Whidden’s Alfetta on our grids. – Jim Moody photo

We again lucked out with the weather for the season’s third race event at the Mission Raceway Park Road Course on the June 23rd-24th weekend. The complete results for the weekend are available on the SCCBC web site (here).

Thanks to Jim Moody and Brent Martin for the great photos of our Vintage action (see below).

The season’s fourth event – the July 14th-15th weekend – will be a ‘Vintage Double’ with Vintage racing on both the Saturday and the Sunday. This will be the perfect warm-up for the our big annual event, the BC Historic Motor Races, a month later during the August 18th-19th weekend.

Get those entries in! See you at the track!

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).
