    Hello fellow VCMC members,

    On behalf of the ELT, I am excited to announce that VCMC will be having a presence at the Vancouver Auto Show this year, and our display area will be on the main floor alongside the major auto manufacturers. To make our Auto Show presence a success, we need to count on our members such as yourselves for support. Specifically, we are looking for volunteers to act as ambassadors of the club, explaining our favourite weekend activity to all interested auto show attendees.

    The Vancouver Auto Show is taking place from Tues, April 3 - Sun, April 8 at BC Place Stadium. The show times are:

    Tuesday Friday: 12PM 10PM
    Saturday: 10AM 10PM
    Sunday: 10AM 6PM

    Incidentally, Fri, April 6 is Good Friday, and Sun, April 8 coincides with our season opener warm-up event. So if you haven't quite finished all your pre-season prep and upgrades, but still wants to do something autocross-related, Sun, April 8 would be a very good date to think about. ...

    2012 VCMC Auto-X Cup -- Featuring NCT

    Ladies and Gentlemen, the 2012 autocross season is finally upon us, and we are proud to present a new format to the VCMC hosted autocross series of yesteryear. We have combined the VCMC Series and Novice Championship Tour (aka NCT) into a sleeker and more efficient package that is the 2012 VCMC Auto-X Cup!

    For Novices (i.e. those with 3 or fewer autocross events experience prior to the 2012 calendar year), the NCT category (aka. Novice Championship Tour) remains within the VCMC Auto-X Cup. You can observe and learn from the veterans while fighting it out with your fellow Novice competitors!

    For Veterans, all your favorite classes still exist in this new series but you all know there is really only one class that matters -- OPAX!

    The VCMC Auto-X Cup will be held in a best 4 out of 6 format for all competitors. This event will be held on the FULL pad. No longer are we confined to the rectangular, up, loop around, back courses of the past. There will be extra long sweepers, off camber turns, grip levels changes and all sorts of other challenges to keep autocrossers on our toes!

    Your ELT is working hard to line up prizes for the season so please stay tuned and stay hungry for those trophy spots. We are happy to announce that PDM Racing is continuing their ongoing support of the NCT group with prizes to be announced.

    Race Date: Sunday, April 8, 2012
    Location: BC Driving Center (Pitt Meadows Airport)
    Gates open @ 7:30 am
    Tech closes @ 8:15am
    Reg closes @ 8:30am (sharp!)

    (Please note that these times are strictly enforced and anyone not registered/tech-ed by 8:30am will not be allowed to run. Please allow enough time for car prep and registration.)

    Driver's meeting will be held at 9am. ...

    Still sulking over your winter blues? Come join us for the VCMC March Members' Meeting and find out what plans the club has for the 2012 season.

    To keep your skills sharp during the winter season, VCMC is proud to present our tech session for March 2012 on iRacing -- the online, subscription-based racing simulation that is marketed as both an entertainment service and a training tool for real life racers. Our presenters, Richard Basford and Nigel Koit, will give a presentation to help anyone interested in iRacing to get involved, get set up, and get faster! They will discuss the advantages iRacing brings to their personal, real world driving, and then move on to finer points in getting the most out of the driving sim: from hardware, settings, practice, races, etc. Richard and Nigel will share their tips and experience to get you faster in both the virtual and real racing worlds.

    Date: Tuesday, March 6, 2012
    Time: 7pm

    Location: Please note that we will *NOT* be meeting at Whitebox Studios. Instead, the March Members Meeting is held at The Blackmarkers at:

    Unit #2033
    2560 Shell Road
    Richmond, BC

    Google Map Link: http://g.co/maps/2y5mt

    We kindly thank The Blackmarkers for their generosity in hosting us, and for allowing us to use their equipment and facilities for demonstration purposes at the members' meeting. The meeting will be held at the upper level of the unit, and attending members are reminded that they should bring their own chairs (foldable camping chairs would do nicely) to the meeting. Last but not least, VCMC members have been generously offered a 30% discount on anything in store.

    With the holiday season coming up, VCMC has teamed up with OpenRoad Scion Richmond to host our first ever Charity Karting Enduro event. OpenRoad is generously contributing $1 per lap completed, with the donated amount going to the Food Bank. The goal for the afternoon is to complete a total of 1000+ laps in an hour. Participants have also brought non-perishable food items as the food drive portion of the event.
