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).

Steve Gunner (#945) and Nick Gunner (#944) surf their Porsche 944's down the main straight at the Mission Raceway Road Course. - Brent Martin photo[/caption] Posted: October 13, 2019 Somebody should make a movie at Mission about racing in the rain!  ;-) The SCCBC should have renamed their September 14-15 race weekend 'September Drizzle' instead of 'September Sizzle'! It was wet! The VRCBC Vintage REVS races were held on the Sunday as usual. The results are posted on the SCCBC web site (here) and Brent Martin has provided some photos of the soggy action below. You can see all of Brent's great motorsport photos on his web site (here).
