July 18-19 was another hot weekend in the Fraser Valley for the Sports Car Club of BC's Run for the House charity event for Ronald MacDonald House. The VRCBC ran their third REVS races of the season on the Sunday. The results are available on the SCCBC website (here) and are also posted on the 2015 Season Results page of this website (here).

As always, thanks to Brent Martin for providing us with the photos of the Vintage racing below. Many more of his photos of all of the weekend action - including the Charity rides - will be available on his web site (here) soon.

Our friends across the border, the Society Of Vintage Racing ENthusiasts - better known to all as SOVREN (here) - held their premier annual event, the Pacific Northwest Historics at Pacific Raceways over their July 4th holiday weekend. Many VRCBC members and friends of the Club, who often race with us at the Mission Raceway Road Course, took part.

Brent Martin was there too and has provided us with some great action photos (see below). You can see more of Brent's photos of this and many other motorsports events on his web site (here).

The weather was almost too perfect for the SCCBC's June Bug Race Weekend at the Mission Raceway Park Road Course. It was warm!

There was a good turn out of Vintage racers for the VRCBC REVS races. A real highlight was the appearance of Collin Jackson's beautifully restored and very fast 1973 Brabham BT40, a well-known Formula Atlantic competitor from the past.

The Vintage Closed Wheel and the Open Wheel / Sports Racer results for the Sunday are available on this web site (here). The complete results for the weekend are available on the Race Results page on the SCCBC web site (here).

Brent Martin has again provided us with some great photos - see below. He has also posted many more photos of the weekend's action on his web site (here).

VRCBC Vintage racers were out on the Sunday of the SCCBC's May Days event over the May 30-31 weekend at Mission Raceway Park Road Course. This was the first on-track racing of the 2015 season and the weather cooperated perfectly. The grid was enhanced with a couple of beautifully prepared new cars; Roger Van Der Marel's Alfa Romeo GTV and Peter Valkenburg's Porsche 911.

Update: The results are now available on the 2015 Season page (here) under the Race Results menu.

Brent Martin has again provided us with the great photos shown below. Check his web site (here) later this week for his full set of all of the weekend's action.
