The April 21st-22nd weekend was a very busy one for the VRCBC. Some members were 'working' our display at the BC Classic & Custom Car Show in Abbotsford, while everybody else was 'playing' at the race track!

The 2018 race season at Mission Raceway Park Road Course began under sunny skies with the first Sports Car Club of BC (SCCBC) event, sanctioned by the CACC. As usual, our Vintage REVS series races were held on the Sunday. The Vintage results are available here; the complete results for the weekend are available on the SCCBC web site (here).

And now that spring has finally arrived, it's time to get that grass cut, as VRCBC Vice President Paul Haym so ably demonstrated with his highly efficient Datsun 510 'mower' in Turn 5!

(Thanks Brent.) The rest of Brent's photos of the whole weekend of racing are now posted on his website (here).

Our local motorsport sanctioning body, the CACC secured a  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 was held at the Vancouver Convention Centre at Canada Place.

The CACC's objective was 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 big display included many specially selected (including three Vintage) competition cars, video footage, club schedules and brochures, and other promotional material.

A special focus this year was 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.

  Some of Brent Martin's photos of the VRCBC moving in their cars on Sunday, March 25th. Good fun!
