Hot Racing at Mission!

Gunther Ruppel earned his senior race licence on Saturday and then he and his faithful ’60 Bugeye Sprite proceeded to disappear (ahem) from the rest of the grid on Sunday! – Brent Martin photo

It wasn’t just the racing that was hot at the SCCBC’s fourth event of the season over the July 14th – 15th weekend; it was really warm out there!

The Vintage racers were out on the Sunday as usual, with some of the cars (and some drivers too!) showing the effects of the heat. Nevertheless, it was fun. The complete results are available on the CACC #4 Results page on the SCCBC web site (here).

Once again, thanks to Brent Martin for the photos below. You can find all of his albums on his web site (here).

The next Vintage racing at the Mission Raceway Park Road Course will be our very own British Columbia Historic Motor Races on August 17th to 19th! Watch the photos of the entrants grow on the BCHMR web site (here).

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 VRCBC was at the 2018 ABFM!

The VRCBC again had a display at the 2018 All British Field Meet (This was the 33rd edition!) at Vancouver’s VanDusen Botanical Garden on Saturday, May 19th.

The VRCBC is very grateful to the ABFM. As a non-profit motorsport club, we enjoy complimentary sponsorship at the ABFM in order to promote awareness (and attendance) of our BC Historic Motor Races over the August 18th – 19th weekend, among both classic car owners and enthusiasts in general.

The weather was good and there was the usual large crowd of enthusiasts checking out the many classic British cars and motorcycles.

The legendary Austin Healey ‘Bugeye’ Sprite was one of this year’s featured marques and Gunther Ruppel’s bright red racing version was very prominent in our display, right next to the ‘main road’. We are all looking forward to seeing Gunther really ‘wheelin’ it’ at Mission this season!

Check out Brent Martin’s other photos of our display below, and his full gallery of 2018 ABFM shots on his web site (here).
