Updated April 30, 2012: Thanks to Paul Bonner and Brent Martin for the additional photos.

The SCCBC hosted two full days of CACC-sanctioned racing at Mission Raceway Park Road Course on April 14th and 15th. The SCCBC named the weekend 'Robert Remembered' in memory of Robert Currie, who sadly passed away in February.

The first VRCBC REVS races of the 2012 season were held on the Sunday. It was great to see some new faces (see the photos below) and there was some excellent competition throughout the field in both afternoon races. The complete Vintage results are posted under the Race Results menu and are also available directly here.

The next REVS races will be during the May 12th - 13th 'Mother's Day Special' weekend. This will be a special double for us, with a Vintage qualifying session and two races on each of the Saturday and the Sunday.

Many of them have visited the joint SCCBC - VRCBC stand to ask questions about our road racing at Mission Raceway. Most of the questions have been about spectating but there has also been a lot of interest in getting involved 'on-track'. Two good friends of the VRCBC, Intermeccanica Custom Coach Builders (here) and Classic and Collector Car Insurance specialists, Hagerty (here) also attracted big crowds. Check out some more photos below.

(Another big thank you to Brody Saari.) Unfortunately, we had several no-shows (It was raining a little after all!) but those who were there had a great time and several made significant improvements in their car's performance. The results are available here. VRCBC VP Dennis Repel again ‘made the biggest numbers’ with his 1974 Camaro (with 406 hp and 422 ft-lb) for the third year in a row, and also took the loudest car 'award'. Check out some photos below.
