The weather was almost too perfect for the SCCBC’s June Bug Race Weekend at the Mission Raceway Park Road Course. It was warm!

There was a good turn out of Vintage racers for the VRCBC REVS races. A real highlight was the appearance of Collin Jackson’s beautifully restored and very fast 1973 Brabham BT40, a well-known Formula Atlantic competitor from the past.

The Vintage Closed Wheel and the Open Wheel / Sports Racer results for the Sunday are available on this web site (here). The complete results for the weekend are available on the Race Results page on the SCCBC web site (here).

Brent Martin has again provided us with some great photos – see below. He has also posted many more photos of the weekend’s action on his web site (here).

Gerry Frechette has posted some (97!) excellent action photos on his web site (here).

Some of the VRCBC’s finest took to the track for the final time this season during the SCCBC’s ‘Double Double Weekend’ on October 11th and 12th at Mission Raceway Park Road Course. The results are available on the ‘2014 Season Results’ page (here).

John McCoy in his ‘two-wheeling’ Escort Twin Cam and Phil Roney in his TVR took first and second places respectively in both races; with less than a second between them. Dennis Repel took third in the first race with his Camaro and Ian Thomas in his BMW took the final podium spot in the second race.

John has posted a short in-car video of the last few laps of his winning drive in the second race on You Tube (here). It is easy to tell that the track is still slippery.

In the middle of all that were another BMW (Leigh Anderson), Gunter Pichler’s XKE, the Datsuns (Paul Haym and Phil Linzey), the Porsches (Michael Hawthorne and Frank Chynoransky), the Volvos (Ian Wood and Peter Valkenburg), Ivan Lessner’s ‘Big Healey’ and the MGBs (John Elliott and Al Reid).

Over in the Open Wheel group, the always fast Alan McColl in his Formula Ford Tiga, VRCBC president Tedd McHenry in his Formula 4 Xpit and veteran Tom Sproule in his Formula Vee carried the Vintage flag. Unfortunately, Gayle Baird was unable to start either race after having some mechanical issues with her Vee on Saturday.
