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!

Season’s Second Race Weekend

Posted: May 2, 2017

The SCCBC’s second race event of the 2017 season was held over the April 29th-30th weekend at the Mission Raceway Park Road Course. As usual, our VRCBC Vintage races were held on the Sunday.

We were very pleased to welcome Steve Gunner from Armstrong to our REVS races. Steve successfully completed his final Novice race on Saturday and entered both Vintage races on Sunday. And one of our veterans, Leigh Anderson, debuted his new car, a 1979 BMW 320i. It had a few teething problems but these will be sorted out in time for the next races in June.

The full results for the weekend are available on the SCCBC web site (here). Those for VRCBC racers are also posted on the Results page on this web site (here).

Check out some more of Brent Martin’s photos of the action below.
