REVS

Our regular Vintage racers were joined by several 'special guests' on the Sunday. There were some excellent battles and everyone had a lot of fun - which is what Vintage racing is really all about. The complete results for the weekend are posted on the SCCBC web site (here). And as always, thanks to Brent Martin for the photos (see below) of the action. Registration for the next (and last scheduled) SCCBC / CACC race weekend ('That's Fall Folks') is already open. Check the Schedule page on the SCCBC web site (here) for full information.

The SCCBC held their first CACC-sanctioned race weekend of this very unusual season at the Mission Raceway Park road course on July 25th-26th. The Vintage racers hit the track on the Sunday. Some cars were  'attacked' by the Vintage racing gremlins, but there was also some excellent on-track battles. In spite of the heat, the mosquitoes and the (now familiar to us all) COVID protocol requirements, it was good to get back to the track. Hopefully, the next event scheduled for the August 22nd-23rd weekend will also get the green flag. The complete results for the weekend are posted on the SCCBC web site (here). And as always, thanks to Brent Martin for the photos (see below) of the action.

George is a real 'Vintage traditionalist' - he drove his Healey to the track, raced it and then drove it back home again - just like the good old days! - Brent Martin photo[/caption] Posted: October 17, 2019 The final race event of the CACC 2019 season at the Mission Raceway Road Course was the SCCBC's Wet Leaf Classic over the October 13th-14th weekend. Well, they certainly picked an appropriate name this time! It was damp and windy. The results are posted on the SCCBC Results web page (here). As always, a big thank you to Brent Martin for his photos (see below). You can see all of Brent's motorsport photo albums on his web site (here).

It was wet! The VRCBC Vintage REVS races were held on the Sunday as usual. The results are posted on the SCCBC web site (here) and Brent Martin has provided some photos of the soggy action below. You can see all of Brent's great motorsport photos on his web site (here).

Brent Martin has again provided us with some great photos (see below) of our Vintage drivers and their cars in action. Thanks Brent! You can find all of Brent’s photos on his web site (here). The next Vintage on-track action at Mission will be our very own British Columbia Historic Motor Races over the August 10th-11th weekend. Before that however, make sure to come out for the SCCBC's big Mission 25th Anniversary Grand Prix over the July 27th-28th weekend. Check the SCCBC web site (here) for more information. See you at the track!
