SCCBC Awards

al+steveSCCBC is proud of its long history, now spanning over 60 years. Throughout its history, the club has had its share of skilled competitors, dedicated volunteers and rabid motorsport enthusiasts.

To recognize the accomplishments and reward the devotion of our drivers, volunteers and support crew, the SCCBC awards its members with a variety of annual honours. In accordance with the SCCBC Awards and Points Policy, members submit nominations to the SCCBC Executive and the SCCBC Race Drivers Committee (RDC), who then select the best candidates from among the nominees.

The table below lists the current and historical holders of each of our award categories. Congratulations to all our award winners. Without them, our club would not be on the vanguard of motorsports in British Columbia.
