  1. Winnipeg Sports Car Club member Frank Mancini is being inducted into the Manitoba Motorsports Association Hall of Fame on Saturday, March 25, 2017. Frank is a founder member (member #4) of the Winnipeg Sports Car Club back in 1952 and still attends our events. In 2016 he was at our booth at World of Wheels, the vintage race weekend at Gimli and our annual banquet. I believe the induction ceremony will be at the convention centre and more details will be posted here once we know the time, the room, etc. Please plan to attend and support Frank and his motorsports achievements.

  9. Thank you to all the racers, volunteers, spectators, businesses at the vintage road races last weekend. It was one of the largest events the club has put on for some time and it was awesome to see so many cars and people at the track. An enormous amount of effort was put in by many people to make it all happen. It was very successful as I saw lots of smiles everywhere all weekend. I liked the various ways Gord Leach was remembered and honoured. He was missed very much this past weekend. Also, a big thank you to all the people that travelled long distances to come race with us. It has taken me two days to recover from the weekend and I can imagine how some of the racers must feel this week after racing all weekend and then a 25-hour drive home. Great job everyone!
