Ride along with Phil Roney in the first Vintage Group 2 race on Saturday. Phil didn’t get out in Qualifying so he had to start from the back of the grid and work his way through the field. This he does – except for a brief ‘off’ in Turn 1 on the second lap – turning times in the 1:20’s, until a universal joint fails – noisily – in Turn 5. Click here to watch.

2012 Battle of the Titans – on video!

The ‘Titans’: Mark Brown (1969 Lotus Seven S3) leads (for now) Dennis Repel (1974 Chevy Camaro) into Turn 2 – Jim Moody photo

These two stalwarts of the VRCBC Executive Team, Dennis Repel and Mark Brown, seem to have a good scrap almost every race weekend, and the Vintage Groups 1 & 2 Feature Race at the 2012 BCHMR was no exception.  If you look closely at the photo above, you will see the onboard camera mounted on Mark’s roll cage. You can watch the entire race from that ‘bird’s eye view’ by clicking this link.
