The Sports Car Club of BC held its annual Awards Banquet on November 7, 2015 at the new Elements Hotel in Burnaby. A crowd of over 100 attended this gala event to share tall tales with brothers and sisters in arms.
The evening was full of surprises and featured the recognition of SCCBC’s first three-generation racing family as well as a spontaneous marriage proposal from the GTU class champion.
2015 saw the introduction of the SCCBC Class Championship Awards. President Ray Stec, assisted by brother Roland, presented both the Class Championship and Annual awards to the gathered membership.
A list of the 2015 annual award and class championship winners are provided below. Visit our photo gallery for more photos from the 2015 Awards Banquet.
