Several of the VRCBC's racers attended SOVREN's Pacific Northwest Historics event at Pacific Raceways over the July long weekend. Thanks to Jim Moody, we have some photos of 'our heroes' taking maximum advantage of some additional on-track warm up time before the BC Historic Motor Races that will be held over the August 4th-5th weekend at Mission Raceway Park Road Course. You can find more info on the BCHMR here and you can check out Jim's photos below. (Thanks Jim.)

[caption id="attachment_6873" align="aligncenter" width="480" caption="Some of the grid gets set for the first Session on Saturday- VRCBC photo"][/caption] Updated: May 29, 2012 The weather was perfect for the Sports Car Club of BC (SCCBC)  'Mother's Day Special' Race Weekend on May 12th and 13th.  The VRCBC racers did their part to honour all mothers with their special 'Double - Double' - holding two races on each of the Saturday and Sunday. Not all of the cars (or drivers!) managed to complete both days, but there was some excellent battles throughout the field in all four events. The results are posted on the SCCBC web site (here - click on 'Race Results') or they can be viewed directly here. Photo Updates: A big thank you to these photographers for making their photos available to us.

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.
