It doesn’t get much more classic Vintage racing than this!

The Vintage Racing Club of British Columbia (VRCBC) is very pleased to announce that the 32nd running of its annual marquee race weekend, the British Columbia Historic Motor Races (BCHMR) will be held on August 10 and 11, 2019 (with the usual Test & Tune day on Friday, the 9th) at the Mission Raceway Park Road Course, Mission, British Columbia.

The BCHMR was first held in 1981 at the famous Westwood track in Coquitlam. After several years, it was moved to its current home at the multi-purpose racing complex at Mission. The BCHMR is the largest vintage race event in Western Canada and a significant one in the Pacific Northwest, with typically 100 vintage and historic racing cars and several thousand spectators in attendance.

The BCHMR is always popular with classic car enthusiasts. A large car display will be featured in a special spectator area, known as “The Field of Dreams”, creating a unique show of its own. Also adding to the overall festive atmosphere are the many sponsors’ booths offering everything from automobilia and artwork, to automotive product displays. The food concessions, informative track side commentary and excellent grandstand viewing, all make this an entertaining weekend for families as well as long time motorsports enthusiasts.

The VRCBC is working on a full line up of interesting racing cars, special attractions and fun activities. As these are finalized, they will be announced on both the VRCBC website: here and this BCHMR event website, as well as through sponsors and the press.

Check back often!
