Fifth Race Weekend of the 2022 Season

A ‘Big Datsun Train”! 1983 Sebring winner Kees Nierop (’72 Datsun 280Z) leads Pat Hall (’72 Datsun 240Z) and Robin Liu (’70 Datsun 240Z) into Turn 1 during their battle at the August 27th Vintage races.

Posted: September 1, 2022

The fifth races of the 2022 VRCBC’s Vintage racing season took place on Sunday, August 27th at the Speed-Fanatics Motorsport Circuit at Mission Raceway Park. This was also the sixth event of the VRCBC’s IWE-REVS points series for 2022.

Our Vintage races were just one part of a full weekend of road racing organized by the Sports Car Club of BC (SCCBC) and sanctioned by the Confederation of Autosport Car Clubs (CACC).

Thanks (as always) to Brent Martin for his photos (see below) of the action. They are available on Brent’s website (here), along with the many others he has taken over the years. Make sure to check them out and order at least one of yourself (or your favourite ‘hero’ driver if that’s not you) in action!

The complete results for the weekend, including those for Vintage, are available on the SCCBC web site (here). The next Vintage races at the Speed-Fanatics Motorsport Circuit are on the Sunday of the final SCCBC / CACC race weekend of the season – October 8th-9th. Registration is already open (here). We look forward to seeing you there!

There is another big race event at the track before that however; the ICSCC (‘Conference’) weekend on September 17th-18th. There won’t be any (our favourite – but we’re biased!) Vintage races but there will be lots of exciting action. There will be many entrants from south of the border in addition to our local stars, with everybody after Conference championship points as the season draws to a close. You can find the latest entry list here. It promises to be great fun! See you at the track!
