The fourth road racing event of the season at the Mission Raceway Park Road Course – The Mission Hospice Charity Weekend – was held over the July 15-16 weekend. The VRCBC’s own Vintage racers took it to the track on the Sunday!

The complete results for the weekend are available on the SCCBC web site (here) and our own results are also posted on this web site under the Race Results menu (here).

As usual, Brent Martin has provided us with a sample of his photos of the Vintage racing – see below. (Thanks Brent.) The rest of his photos of all of the weekend’s action, including Vintage, will be on his web site (here) within a few days. Be sure to check them out.

Of course, our next Vintage racing will be the BC Historic Motor Races on August 19th and 20th, with an open practice day on Friday the 18th. Visit the BCHMR web site (here) regularly for the latest news.

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!
