May Coffee and Cars – Kelowna

Even though it was Mother’s Day, there still was a good turn out. We were excited to unveil our new BCIR hats. The weather was perfect and the coffee was tasty.

A big thank you to August Luxury Motorcars for hosting this great day!
Over 30 BCIR vehicles showed up to the race track in Oliver, BC. The highlight was a pace lap which gave many members a first hand look at this magnificent track.
A few members participated in half day hot lapping.
All of the members walked away with big smiles!

BC Interior Region Gives Back!

At BCIR, we believe in helping our communities. Last year, one of our charities was The Foundry Kelowna. It is a wellness centre where young people can find hope, help and support when they need it.

Through a silent auction, fundraisers and generous donations from our members, we raised $14,645.66.

Kamloops Cars and Coffee

We had our first Cars and Coffee of the season in Kamloops. Thanks to Gary and crew for hosting it at Bighorn Golf and Country Club. After coffee and delicious cookies, we jumped into our cars and headed on a curvy road to Falkland where we stopped for lunch. Thanks everyone for coming out!

GT3 RS Lego Technics Model

Finished Car

From Chris Wilson – BCIR Member
I wished for a GT3 RS for my birthday and got my wish … some assembly required!  I had heard and read about this amazing Lego Technics model and thought it would be great fun to build one.  It was a fun, challenging build that filled a bunch of cold Kamloops winter afternoons and evenings.  2700 pieces and 569 pages of instructions.  A truly amazingly engineered model with a working engine, functioning transmission with paddle shifters, working steering and a suspension that is a little on the soft side.  I ended up having to build the transmission twice because I mixed up two gears (it was just as fun the second time!).  To document the build I made a time lapse movie … with each picture .2 sec in duration the movie is 56 minutes long (that’s 16,800 pictures).
