Historic car racing

August 10th, 2019 — One thing for sure you will see at any historic car racing event such as this one yesterday at Mission Raceway is cars almost completely disassembled while the owner tries to find out why it won’t run. This 1978 Johnston JM2c sports car owned and driven by Ian Thomas in the white T shirt has lost it’s oil pressure and the crew is trying to find it, which they did. The other certainty is that any event that tries to capture the spirit of the the old Westwood Racing Circuit will get rained on. This event was honouring the 60th anniversary of Westwood’s opening. They didn’t call it Wetwood for nothing. Gary Kwong, below, under an umbrella in his 1996 Protofrom P2 before the start of his race.

Prince of Wales beats Magee

November 4th, 1975 — Prince of Wales in black playing Magee at Quilchena Park in a Vancouver city high school rugby game. Prince of Wales defeated the previously unbeaten Magee 6-4. It’s taken a long time to track down the details of this game as the pictures never ran in the paper, just the story, which is a shame.
