Western Canada’s Biggest Vintage Motorsport Event
The Vintage Racing Club of British Columbia (VRCBC) is very pleased to announce that the 34th running of its annual marquee race weekend, the British Columbia Historic Motor Races (BCHMR) hosted by the Speed-Fanatics Motorsport Club, will be held on May 13-14, 2023 at the Speed-Fanatics Motorsport Circuit at Mission Raceway Park in Mission British Columbia.
The first BCHMR was 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 in 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.
For 2023, the BCHMR plans to again feature 3 race groups, the very quick open wheel racing cars, and 2 race groups for the vintage sedans and sports cars that many fans remember from their younger days. The sedans & sports cars are split into two groups (fast & faster) with a combined final race on Sunday with both groups combined.
Classic Cars, Vendors and Food Concessions
The BCHMR is always popular with classic car enthusiasts. A big 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.
