  May 25/26/2013 This event was organized by the Vintage Racing Club of B.C. (VRCBC) to celebrate 45 years of Formula Ford racing in B.C.

Last word on the BCHMR – M.G. Morris (the Mission Moose) Awards for Formula Ford ‘Heroes’!

  At every BC Historic Motor Races in recent memory, Liz and Bob Smith have awarded a ‘M.G. Morris, the Mission Moose’ to deserving drivers in races or – on rare occasions – for other activities.
