06 Jul Updated – ‘Long Time Running’ Weekend
The VRCBC’s third set of REVS races of the 2012 season took place on the Sunday of the SCCBC’s ‘Long Time Running’ Weekend on June 23rd and 24th. The Vintage racers consider themselves lucky to have avoided the dramatic weather conditions on the Saturday. It flooded, it rained, a thunderstorm passed overhead, and the wind blew bits of cottonwood trees all over the back stretch. Never mind the power outages!
Update – July 6th: The just- released SCCBC July Pit Pass has some excellent photos and stories about the ‘wild and woolly Saturday’. You can find it on the SCCBC website (here) – click on the News – Pit Pass button and look for 2012.
Sunday’s weather on the other hand, was perfect and the VRCBC gang enjoyed themselves – except for reigning REVS champion Mark Brown who had a rare DNF with a broken ‘halfshaft’. The results are now posted on the SCCBC web site (here) or you can go directly to our 2012 Season Results page (here).
Next up is the BC Historic Motor Races (BCHMR) on August 4th and 5th featuring not only the usual set of exciting Vintage races but also two special features for this year, the Third Annual International Formula Vee Challenge and the Childrens’ Charity Grand Prix. All this on only one weekend! Check it out at www.bchmr.ca
Thanks to Brent Martin for providing us with some of his photos of the on-track action. (see below) You can see all of his photos from the weekend on his site (here) – Just look for the ‘Vintage Group’ album.
Update – July 9th: Brent’s photos have also been posted on the autocourse.ca web site (here). Look for the VRCBC logo and the ‘Long Time Running Weekend’ link.
