As has now become the tradition, the VRCBC kicked off their new race season on March 19th with a Kart Fest Enduro at TBC Indoor Kart Racing in Richmond. The Enduro was promoted as a fund-raiser in support of our BC Historics Motor Races in August but in reality, it is primarily just an excuse for members of the VRCBC, SCCBC, META and their family and friends to have fun on the track!

Each team was assigned a race track name and had three randomly selected members:

  • Westwood: Mike Bailey, Russell Jansen, Kaylan van der Marel
  • Mission: Scott Dougans, Daryll Jansen, Rowan van der Marel
  • Abbotsford: Rob Dunlop, Nolan Rempel, Doug Walter
  • Mosport: John Elliott, Keith Robinson, Ian Wood
  • Laguna Seca: Angus Glass, Patrick Stewart, Bruce Yeo
  • Silverstone: Danny Geheran, Jeremy Stewart, Will Jones
  • Goodwood: Paul Haym, Peter Valkenburg, Lachlan ‘Rocky’ MacKay
  • Gimli: Ryan Jansen, Roger van der Marel, Marcus Lee

The awards were all original Westwood trophies from the 1970’s, which had been refurbished for this event. Good, clean racing was enjoyed by all who attended and the VRCBC thanks everyone for their support!

These photos of the action were taken by co-organizers Patrick Stewart and Ian Wood.
