Four VRCBC Veterans Inducted

Updated – October 1, 2012

The Greater Vancouver Motorsport Pioneers Society (GVMPS) held its 2012 Induction Ceremony, on the evening of Saturday, September 22nd. The three inductees in the Sports Car Racing category – Tom Johnston, Ian Wood and Roger Salomon – are VRCBC members. Adrian Ratcliff, one of the founders of the VRCBC and a former racer, but probably better known these days as one of our merry group of BCHMR race commentators, was inducted into the new Collector Car and Restoration category.

The long term contribution of each of these four gentlemen to motorsports in this region is very well known. Our congratulations on this well-deserved recognition.

The keynote speaker for the evening was Nigel Matthews, classic car columnist with the Vancouver Province newspaper, an internationally recognized Concours d’Elegance judge and the Marketing Manager for Hagerty Classic Car Insurance in Canada.
