The streaming wet conditions kept many racers away from the REVS races during the SCCBC / CACC September 15th-16th weekend at the Mission Raceway Park Road Course. But, unlike many other forms of motorsport, road racing always goes ahead 'rain or shine'!

The overall results for the weekend are available on the Results page (here) of the SCCBC web site. The indefatigable Brent Martin was also there braving Mother Nature, and has provided us with the following photos.

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!

The first CACC-sanctioned race weekend of the 2016 season at Mission Raceway Park Road Course was held on April 16-17. The SCCBC named this the 'McRae Memorial Weekend' in honour of long time volunteer and 2010 Hall of Fame inductee Jim McRae, who passed away earlier this year. The complete results for the weekend are available on the SCCBC website (here).

The Vintage REVS races were held as usual, on the Sunday. The Vintage and Open Wheel / Sports Racer results are also available in PDF under the 2016 Season menu on this web site (here).
