Vancouver, British Columbia – More than 100 vintage race cars will meet next June in the Vintage Racing Club of British Columbia’s Historic Motor Races. The 2011 running of the annual race weekend will be held June 11 and 12 at the River’s Edge Road Course at Mission Raceway Park.
Since 1976, when the races were staged at the Westwood track in Coquitlam, the event has grown to become the largest vintage race meet in Western Canada and one of the largest in the Pacific Northwest.
“The BCHMR weekend is a unique experience,” said event chairman Tom Johnston. “There is nowhere else in British Columbia where road racing fans can get up close and personal with these wonderful machines and their drivers, and where you will see some of the world’s finest race-bred marques racing for the checkered flag. The Paddock is open all weekend for public access and the on-track racing is fast and competitive, stirring nostalgic memories from a bygone era of motor racing.”
The event includes a classic car display, sponsor booths, automotive product displays, food concessions, informative track-side commentary and excellent grandstand viewing.
