Mission’s Robbie Arthur wins racing title

First-ever championship for Mission racer

A Mission resident took home top honours in the B.C. Formula Vee division.

Robbie Arthur, 19, won all 11 races he entered this season and took over the points lead early from Chillwack’s Darren Grandbois to earn the title.

The win is Arthur’s first-ever championship and he clinched the victory at the Mission Raceway Park road course in mid-October.

Arthur received his championship award at the Mission Raceway awards banquet at the end of October.

He is now setting his sights south of the border for 2018 where he is planning on competing for a Sports Car Club of America championship with the 2018 national championships being held at Sonoma Raceway just outside of San Francisco.
