  2. A couple of years ago Standard Machine Works at 660 St Matthews Ave were able to do exactly this for me on a Jaguar XK8 brake caliper. I took them a new bleed screw as well and they were able to get the broken one out and also ensured the new one seated correctly. I had no problems with the caliper afterwards and I was able to melt brake pads again Time Attacking the Jaguar.

  9. Winnipeg Sports Car Club member Dino Calvert is being inducted into the Manitoba Motorsports Association Hall of Fame this Saturday, March 17, 2018. Dino is a long-time member of the Winnipeg Sports Car Club and in addition to his decades of competing in rally and road racing he has spent an enormous amount of time volunteering to organize and officiate Manitoba’s motorsports. Dino has also forever been the club’s regional representative at our sanctioning body, the Western Canada Motorsport Association. Dino’s ability to fairly and consistently apply the rules without making enemies is a gift and is one of the reasons that the club is able to repeatedly attract racers and cars every year from all over Canada and the States due to the quality of the racing. Dino has and does everything from chairing drivers’ meetings, inspecting tracks, discussing rule changes, ensuring safety standards, organizing large race weekends and generously sharing his extensive experience. Dino is the race track go-to-guy and at every club event you are sure to hear someone say "...you better ask Dino”. The presentation will take place at the RBC Convention Centre Winnipeg, 375 York Avenue, during the World of Wheels on Saturday, March 17 at 4:30 pm in the 2nd floor theatre. Please plan to attend and support Dino and his motorsports achievements.
