Update May 10, 2012: The weather has been co-operating lately and all of the re-paving planned for the Paddock, Pre-Grid and Turn 6 has now been completed!

The Sports Car Club of British Columbia (SCCBC) has been working on upgrades to the Mission Raceway Park Road Course throughout the off-season. Probably the most noticeable changes for drivers will be an expanded Pre-Grid, a more ‘straight-in’ exit from Turn 9 to the Pits and the opening up of the sight lines going into Turns 3 and 6. The actual track layout has not been changed but the view from the cockpit is better. You can spot the differences with these two in-car videos from long-time VRCBC racer Gunter Pichler in his well-known E-Type.

The first video is of Gunter’s best lap ever, done in 2011.

Fastest Lap

The second is a compilation from his first race – and first win – of the 2012 Season.
