SOVREN, our Vintage racing partners from across the border, held their big annual Pacific Northwest Historics event at Seattle International Raceway over the July 5th-7th long weekend. A number of VRCBC members took part and thanks to Brent Martin, Jim Moody and Jock Hobson we have photos of some of them - and others - in action. See below.

Update - July 12, 2013: Jock Hobson's photos added below. Visit the VRCBC Facebook page  (here) to find links to more photos by Marshall Autry and also two in-race videos from inside Paul Kuckein's Z-28, and one from Gunter Pichler's XKE.

Be sure to check out all (over 370) of Brent's photos of the PNW Historics on his web site (here).

There were lots of great machines on display but - although we might be biased - we think the stars of the show were the two 'Open Wheelers' of the VRCBC's very own; BCHMR Chairman Tom Johnston and Vice President Dennis Repel.

The Show was open from Friday April 19th to Sunday April 21st. The booth featured three all-out racing cars: the former Speedvision World Challenge Corvette C5 of Tom Johnston Racing, the beautifully prepared and very fast Vintage Formula Ford Tiga of Alan McColl and a newcomer on the local scene, the 1965 Fournier-M​arcadier Barquette 1.6 litre sports racer of Ian Wood. (These photos were taken late at night before the setup was completed.) Thank you to the many show-goers who dropped by the booth and said hello; we hope to see you again next year. And a very big 'Thank You' from the VRCBC to the many META folks who showed up (in race day uniform) to help us promote road racing at the Mission Raceway Park Road Course. The next big event is of course, our BC Historic Motor Races (here) on the May 25th - 26th weekend.

The SCCBC / CACC 'A Lap Ahead' weekend opened the race season at Mission Raceway Park Road Course on April 13-14. It was a little chilly and damp on the Saturday but just as ordered by the VRCBC's Vintage racers, the weather was beautiful on Sunday. The full weekend results are now available on the SCCBC web site (here) and will also be posted on this web site.

Check out the photos below. Thanks to Paul Bonner for the on-track shots.
