Our record breaking 2016 season wouldn’t be complete without the biggest, baddest Canadian autocross event of the year: the VCMC Summer Blitz. From newcomers to national champions, you are all invited to join us on August 13th and 14th JIBC/YPK Driving Centre in Pitt Meadows, BC, for the fiercest, finest, and fun-est autocross competition this side of Nebraska.
Format: Just like the 2015 BC Autocross Championships and previous Summer Blitz events of yesteryear, the 2016 Summer Blitz will feature a four course format. Drivers get 3 attempts on two courses each day with their fastest runs from each layout combined to create a cumulative overall time for the event. Yes, you counted right, that means 12 runs over two days on extra large courses enabled by pitting on the runway for the event.
Food: A Saturday night banquet dinner and frosty cold beverages are included with your registration. There will be a very special lunch truck on site both Saturday and Sunday as well so remember to bring some cash.
Cool stuff: You’ll also want to have a few extra bucks around to bid on some (or all) of the prizes we’ll have up for grabs throughout the weekend. These goodies include a set of 4 RE71 tires from Bridgestone Canada, a Race Driver Training Program entry from the Sports Car Club of British Columbia, gift certificates to your favorite lower mainland speed shops like Driver’s Edge Autosport and Aria Auto Service, free VCMC events, a 50/50 draw, and oh so much more.
Even more cool stuff: Our awesome sponsors CG Motorsports and Petrel Data have both kicked in additional support for the Blitz. Just like our cup events, the fastest overall PAX BMW will take home a cool 100 CG Motorsport Dollars good toward any part or service from their shop. In addition, mad scientist and creator of Petrel Data’s SoloStorm will be providing an on-site tutorial on how to get the very most out of your SoloStorm software in a race day scenario. That means how to take the data SoloStorm gives you and use it to get faster between runs.
Giving back: The raffle component mentioned during at the outset of our prize description paragraph is key. As much as we are dedicated to growing the sport of autocross and providing our drivers with the best experience possible, we are just as committed to giving back to the local community which is kind enough to play host to our races: Pitt Meadows. Given our races’ proximity to their community, our social permit to carry out our events is granted only by the good people of Pitt Meadows and their willingness to accommodate roaring engines and screeching tires.
That said, all the proceeds generated by the prizes and merchandise generously provided by VCMC Summer Blitz sponsors as well as our 50/50 draw will go directly to the Friends in Need Food Bank. You’ll also be able to make a donation during your registration via Motorsport Reg if you’d like to share some extra love.
