VRCBC members are always travelling the world of motorsports and sending back reports for our web site. Our most recent reporters were Al Reid and Pierce Isaacs, who took part in an excursion to England in September, culminating in a visit to the great Goodwood Revival Meeting. They were ably supported by Steve Jones, a retired Lotus Seven Vintage racer from Calgary.

During this trip they visited: the Morgan Motor Company factory, the Cotswold Motoring Museum, the new Jaguar factory where the F-Type is made, the British Motor Museum, Desmond J, Smail Limited (Aston Martin specialists), the Aston Martin Works, the Williams F1 Museum, the National Motor Museum and of course, the Goodwood Revival weekend.

That was a lot to do and see in only eight days but our intrepid correspondents came through heroically, selecting the following photos (from hundreds) to illustrate their adventure for us.

Local racing 'legend' (ahem) Keith Robinson carried the VRCBC's flag (well, our decals) into battle during the 50th anniversary of Formula Ford races at the Indianapolis Speedway in June. These Formula Ford races were part of the SVRA's big Open Wheel World Challenge event.

The fourth road racing event of the season at the Mission Raceway Park Road Course - The Mission Hospice Charity Weekend - was held over the July 15-16 weekend. The VRCBC's own Vintage racers took it to the track on the Sunday!

The complete results for the weekend are available on the SCCBC web site (here) and our own results are also posted on this web site under the Race Results menu (here). As usual, Brent Martin has provided us with a sample of his photos of the Vintage racing - see below. (Thanks Brent.) The rest of his photos of all of the weekend's action, including Vintage, will be on his web site (here) within a few days. Be sure to check them out. Of course, our next Vintage racing will be the BC Historic Motor Races on August 19th and 20th, with an open practice day on Friday the 18th.
