Update: The Final Results are now available here.

The Thanksgiving weekend 'Turkey Chase' was the Sports Car Club of BC's last event of the 2011 race season at Mission Raceway Park Road Course. The VRCBC's own Vintage racers were out on Sunday, doing their part to run down any stray gobblers that happened to also be 'racing along the River's Edge'.

It is very easy to see from these photos - a big thank you to Karen Gibbons - why Vintage road racing is popular with so many. Vintage racing cars cover the whole spectrum of type, size, age and potential performance on the track. It is this variety that makes it so much fun for everyone. The cars really are the stars.

The weather was perfect and the racing was excellent. It was a great way to end the VRCBC season. Thank you to our hosts - the SCCBC.
