Our local motorsport sanctioning body, the CACC has secured very high profile space at the Vancouver International Auto Show for its member clubs and other BC motorsport groups to display their cars, clubs and events. The show will he held at the Vancouver Convention Centre at Canada Place.

The CACC’s objective is to showcase all facets of our sport in BC, including Slalom, Hill Climb, Time Attack, Ice Race, Road Race and (our own favourite of course!) Vintage. This year’s very big display will include many specially selected (including four Vintage) competition cars, video footage, club schedules and brochures, and other promotional material.

A special focus this year will be to show visitors how they can be involved in all of the action and have a lot of fun, without having to actually race a car. They can volunteer and be trained for flagging, communications, timing and scoring, and many other key positions.

Make sure to stop at the CACC display and say hello; and bring all of your family and friends too!

Show Hours 

Wednesday, March 28th – Noon to 9:30 PM
Thursday, March 29th – 10:00 AM to 9:30 PM
Friday, March 30th – 10:00 AM to 9:30 PM
Saturday, March 31st – 10:00 AM to 9:30 PM
Sunday, April 1st – 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM


The First VRCBC ‘Race’ of 2018!

The VRCBC kicked off the 2018 racing season with another of our very popular KartFests. This year were back running the quick, gas-powered Sodi RT8 karts at TBC Indoor Kart Racing in Richmond. We had a full grid of 12 karts and 36 drivers.

The electronic timing and scoring system had some last minute hiccups so, in true Vintage racing tradition, the twelve teams quickly resorted to ‘old school’ manual methods and ‘all was good’.

It was a fun evening for VRCBC members and their many guests. Planning is already underway for the season opening KartFest 2019 scheduled for next March.

Next up is the first ‘real’ race event at Mission Raceway Park Road Course on the April 21-22 weekend. See you there!

The SCCBC’s final event for 2017 was held over the October 14-15 weekend and our Vintage racers hit the track on the Sunday as usual. The weather was perfect for a good grid of Vintage cars plus one special guest, Larry Sandham in his Mini Vauxhall. The Vintage results are available under the Results menu (here). The full results for the weekend are available on the SCCBC web site (here).

Enjoy some of Brent Martin’s photos of the Vintage action below. Then go to his web site (here) and check out all of his photos for this weekend and the rest of the 2017 and previous seasons. Thanks Brent!

See you at the track in 2018!
