Mark ‘Humble’ Brown, REVS Overall Champion for 2011 – C. Wood photo

The VRCBC held its 2011 season-ending Annual Gala & Banquet on Saturday, November 19th at the Delta Town & Country Inn. There were a few serious moments — but not very many! Thank you to our photographers: Janet Backe, Catharine Wood and Linda Zumm. Check out their photos of the award winners and some of the other goings-on below.


2011 REVS Champion Mark Brown - Paul Bonner photo

By accumulating the most points during the past season, Mark Brown has repeated as the REVS (Rivers Edge Vintage Series) Champion. He joins Ivan Lessner as the only multiple winners of the VRCBC’s annual top award. REVS points are primarily earned by participation. Mark demonstrated this perfectly by entering all six events, being on the track in every session, competing hard in every race – winning three outright – and never having a DNF. An unbeatable record for sure. Congratulations Mark – well done!

The full REVS results are available here.
