VRCBC members and guests gathered at TBC Indoor Kart Racing in Richmond on Tuesday, October 19th for the First Annual VRCBC One Hour Enduro. There was some great racing throughout, with just enough “bump drafting” to entertain the fans. After a full hour of racing, the team of Dale Warren, Dave Warren and Alan McColl had completed 109 laps, taking first place by only 30 seconds from the team of Dennis Repel, Malcolm Curtis and Evan Fraser. In third, only one lap further back was the team of Noah Krulitsky, Vittorio Pranovi and Hugh Archer. An excellent time!

The final REVS races of the year took place at Mission Raceway on Sunday, October 10th. The weather was great and the field of 16 entrants had some excellent racing. The results are available here as well as posted under the Race Results menu. The following are some of Jim Latham’s photos of the Vintage action.

Anyone who has watched a Vintage race at Mission in the last few years will recognize Geoff Tupholme’s very fast #441 Mini. Geoff won Saturday’s Group 2 race at July’s BCHMR after a great battle with Mark Brown’s Lotus 7. He was going for another podium in the first race on Sunday, when his “very experienced” crankshaft broke between #2 cylinder and the centre main bearing, as he was leaving Turn 6 on the second lap. You can ride onboard with Geoff by clicking this link to YouTube.  There’s always next year!

The Third Annual The BMW Store Children’s Charities Grand Prix (CCGP) was  held this past (August 7th – 8th) weekend at Mission Raceway Park.  In just three short years, the CCGP has become one of the leading motorsport events in Western Canada. In addition to providing lots of fun and exciting racing for participants and spectators, it has also raised a lot of money for a very good cause and given some children the thrill of a lifetime. This very popular event raises funds for the Children’s Wish Foundation and the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation. The weather could have been a little more cooperative but there was some excellent racing on both days and everyone had a good time. The VRCBC is very supportive of the CCGP. We had our usual Vintage racing on the Sunday.  The results for all of the classes are posted on the SCCBC web site . The Vintage results are also posted under the Race Results menu on this website.

The SCCBC’s September Pit Pass includes event reports from Tony Morris Jr. and Chris Doodson, and some excellent photos.
