Once again, Brent Martin captures the torrid Vintage action! John Elliott (’69 MGB) closes in on Ryan O’Connor (’85 Camaro) through Mission’s Turn 5, shrewdly setting him up for a pass – or perhaps just some bump-drafting – along the straight between Turns 6 and 7 …. or maybe not!

The 2022 VRCBC’s Vintage racing season got underway on Sunday, April 24th at the Speed-Fanatics Motorsport Circuit. (If you haven’t already heard, that is the brand new name for our long time home, the Road Course at Mission Raceway Park.) This was the first event of the VRCBC’s very own IWE-REVS points series for 2022.

The Vintage races were just 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). The weather was excellent for racing and thanks (as always) to Brent Martin, we have some great photos (see below) of the action. All of Brent’s photos of the full weekend will soon be available on his website (here). Make sure to check them out and order at least one of yourself (or your favourite ‘hero’ driver) in action!

The complete results for the weekend, including those for Vintage, are available on the SCCBC web site (here). The next races at the Speed-Fanatics Motorsport Circuit are scheduled for the May 14-15 weekend. See you there!

We are now finalizing the plans for the return of this favourite motorsport event after being forced to cancel for two long years. The BCHMR has its own website (here). The most recent information and contacts will always be updated there. Check back often.

We look forward to seeing you at the track on the August 6th – 7th weekend!

The race schedule for the 2022 season at the Road Course at Mission Raceway Park is now confirmed; at least it is as confirmed as possible in these days of pandemics and shutdowns at short notice. The VRCBC’s finest – plus some of our closest friends – expect to be racing on the Sundays of the SCCBC weekends as always, as well as at our very own BC Historic Motor Races during the August 6-7 weekend.

The current schedules are posted here. Everything is of course subject to change, so be sure to check back often. See you at the track!

This past weekend saw the fifth – and final – CACC-sanctioned race meeting at the Mission Raceway Park Road Course for 2021.

The organizing club, the SCCBC had its usual full schedule of practice, qualifying and racing sessions for Open Wheel and Closed Wheel classes on both Saturday and Sunday. The Vintage racers were out on the Sunday for our REVS series. The full results are available on the SCCBC website (here).

Our thanks to Brent Martin for the photos in the above ‘collage’ and also below. All of his excellent (as always) photos of the full weekend will soon be available on his website (here). Make sure to check them out and order at least one of yourself (or your favourite ‘hero’ driver) in action! You can download a high resolution image for only $10.99!

See you at the track next season!

Wire wheels and wood rimmed steering wheels were the style over the CACC September 18th – 19th race weekend at the Road Course at Mission Raceway Park. The SCCBC was honouring its most senior member, Paul Lautard who was celebrating his 99th year! Paul used to race an MG TC many years ago, so some local MG enthusiasts brought out their classics to put on display in the Paddock and to also do some parade laps.

The MG TCs. TDs and TFs are generally credited with leading the rapid growth of sports cars in post war North America. They might look pretty antiquated to modern eyes but they were a lot of fun ‘back in the day’ and they still are! Thanks as always to Brent Martin for the great photos (below).
