The 2015 British Columbia Historic Motor Races are again coming to Mission.
The Vintage Racing Club of British Columbia (VRCBC) announced the 28th running of the races will be held Aug. 22 and 23 at the Mission Raceway Park road course.
This event has run since 1981. It is the largest vintage race event in Western Canada with typically 100 vintage and historic racing cars and several thousand spectators in attendance.
For 2015, organizers are bringing back the popular Hagerty Formula Festival featuring the quick pure‐bred open wheel and sports racing cars. The plans for 2015 also include a special race for vintage and historic sedans and sports cars of the types that people remember from younger days.
Returning as well for the 2015 event is the “Ride in a Real Racing Car Event,” where fans can (for a nominal contribution) go for a ride on the track with a racing driver in one of the day’s cars during a dedicated period held over the lunch break each of the two event days.
The event is popular with classic car enthusiasts as well. They can display their vehicles in a special spectator area, known as “The Field of Dreams”, creating a unique show of its own.
The VRCBC is currently working on a full line‐up of interesting racing cars, racing celebrities and fun activities. Visit vrcbc.ca or bchmr.ca for more.
