  2. 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.

  12. 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!
  13. 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.

    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!
