    1973 Winnipeg Sports Car Club (WSCC) Ice Race, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, on the Red River south of the city. Wayne Bergstresser and his father drove out to this event on a Sunday afternoon in the spring of 1973.

  5. Yes, that was a very good time, great food and very impressive to see that many people from out of town making the effort to come and celebrate with the club. Thanks Pete!
  6. Triple Track Showdown

    Cool idea. The WSCC already runs road racing, time attack, autoslalom, drifting and track days at the same time during our race weekends at the Gimli Motorsports Park but perhaps we can do a better job of promoting this. At Gimli the drag strip runs right through the road race course and the two of them can't be used at the same time.

  8. The following are the dates of our club events for 2017. In addition there is also a club gathering on Saturday July 15th at Skinners Restaurant near the locks in Lockport. We are hopping to meet at noon at the River Rd. location and after spending some time eating and mingling, we will take a scenic drive to Selkirk and back. Please bring family members and friends in any vehicle and enjoy some good times and conversations...rain or shine.

    Mat also took on and did a great job of grinding down the bumps at the track. The grinding attachment he had to use is super scary and he had to work around buried conduit that was in ground. Now, low race cars can exit the track at the end of the main straight and come into the pits from that way as the big bump just before the pits is gone. Race cars can now also pit along the road that leads from the pits past the concession and washroom building towards corner 4 as Mat got rid of that huge bump as well. Thank you also to Hugh and Ari Hanson who suggested and sponsored the idea. With the bumps gone we will be able to better handle the large runoff and vintage events this summer. Great job everyone!
