Typical VRCBC Vintage racing action at Mission; Geoff Tupholme (1973 Austin Mini) leads Ian Thomas (1970 BMW 2002) and Dennis Repel (1974 Camaro) into Turn 2. Gayle Baird (1990 Honda Civic) and a barely visible Phil Pidcock (1965 Triumph Spitfire) try to run them down. - Brent Martin photo[/caption]

The last CACC-sanctioned, SCCBC-organized race event of the 2016 season honoured Tony Morris, a local motorsport legend who passed away in July. The Tony Morris Memorial Weekend featured SCCBC points races on both Saturday and Sunday, plus a special 'Time-Attack No Passing Introductory Event' on the Saturday as well as the VRCBC's own REVS Vintage races on the Sunday.
The weekend also 'featured' heavy rains on the Saturday; check out Brent Martin's photos of all the splashing around here.
Fortunately for all of the Vintage racers (particularly those still using Lucas electrics!), Sunday's weather was perfect; there was some excellent action on track and everyone had a good time.
The complete results for all of the weekend’s racing are available on the SCCBC website (here). The Vintage Closed Wheel and the Open Wheel / Sports Racer results are available in PDF under the 2016 Season menu on this web site (here).
Check out some of Brent Martin's photos of the Vintage action below. Brent has many more motorsport photos on his web site (here).
