[caption id="attachment_15117" align="aligncenter" width="750"] George Holt takes his 'Big Healey' (a 1959 Mk1) into a soggy Turn 5 ahead of Robin Liu (1976 Datsun 280Z) and Larry Sandham (1978 Mini Vauxhall). George is a real 'Vintage traditionalist' - he drove his Healey to the track, raced it and then drove it back home again - just like the good old days! - Brent Martin photo[/caption] Posted: October 17, 2019 The final race event of the CACC 2019 season at the Mission Raceway Road Course was the SCCBC's Wet Leaf Classic over the October 13th-14th weekend. Well, they certainly picked an appropriate name this time! It was damp and windy. The results are posted on the SCCBC Results web page (here). As always, a big thank you to Brent Martin for his photos (see below). You can see all of Brent's motorsport photo albums on his web site (here).

From left to right, Peter Valkenburg (Porsche 911), Ian Thomas (BMW 2002) and Gunter Pichler (Jaguar E-Type) lead Paul Haym (BMW 2002), an almost hidden Steve Gunner (Porsche 944), Phil Linzey (Datsun 240Z) and Ivan Lessner (Austin Healey 100-6) into the Mission Raceway Road Course's Turn One. - Brent Martin photo[/caption] Posted: May 8, 2019 The first VRCBC REVS races of the 2019 season at Mission Raceway Park on the Sunday May 5th of the SCCBC's 'May Daze' weekend. The full results for the weekend are posted on the SCCBC web site Results page (here). As usual, Brent Martin has provided us with some great photos (see below) of our Vintage cars (and the drivers too of course!) in action. Thanks Brent! You can find all of Brent's photos on his web site (here). The next Vintage on-track action at Mission will be during the SCCBC's 'Dash for Dads' event over the June 15-16 weekend. See you at the track!

It wasn't just the racing that was hot at the SCCBC's fourth event of the season over the July 14th - 15th weekend; it was really warm out there!

The Vintage racers were out on the Sunday as usual, with some of the cars (and some drivers too!) showing the effects of the heat. Nevertheless, it was fun. The complete results are available on the CACC #4 Results page on the SCCBC web site (here).

Once again, thanks to Brent Martin for the photos below. You can find all of his albums on his web site (here).

The next Vintage racing at the Mission Raceway Park Road Course will be our very own British Columbia Historic Motor Races on August 17th to 19th! Watch the photos of the entrants grow on the BCHMR web site (here).

[caption id="attachment_13916" align="aligncenter" width="450"] Two of the VRCBC's top 'draft picks' for 2018 battle it out in the Saturday Novice Race! Ewen Dobbie (1959 Porsche 356A) and Gunther Ruppel (1960 Austin Healey 'Bugeye' Sprite) will be 'graduating' to Vintage racing very soon. We are really looking forward to having these two plus Scott Whidden's Alfetta on our grids. - Jim Moody photo[/caption] Posted: June 26, 2018

We again lucked out with the weather for the season’s third race event at the Mission Raceway Park Road Course on the June 23rd-24th weekend. The complete results for the weekend are available on the SCCBC web site (here).

Thanks to Jim Moody and Brent Martin for the great photos of our Vintage action (see below).

The season's fourth event - the July 14th-15th weekend - will be a 'Vintage Double' with Vintage racing on both the Saturday and the Sunday. This will be the perfect warm-up for the our big annual event, the BC Historic Motor Races, a month later during the August 18th-19th weekend.

Get those entries in! See you at the track!
