  1. Right on Mat. I have been coming up to this track since 1976. Ive watched my Dad (and my mom!) race here and watched his return, the first time back in over 20 years. My cousin (also raced karts here early 80’s!) came up and was energized to the point he bought a race car and will be joining us next year (Dason will be happy lol). I have raced myself at all ends of this wonderful place, drag raced, kart raced (when the kart track was was at the north end and it’s current south locale) and road raced, and even made some laps on the MX track. I’ve got vivid memories from the early days of the At
  2. Many moons ago I AX’d at a couple venues in town (used to be MAXA before AX was under the WSCC banner, but I digress...) I went to the Downs event because a very good driver I raced with in Karts was trying it for the first time and I was quite interested to see what he did. His results were rather anti-climactic; very similar to @Dnfwm - if he wasn’t dead-last, he was next to dead last. 3 weeks later he had another first, actually 3: his first ever Formula Ford race, his first time racing on Isle Notre Dame, Circuit Gilles Villeneuve. His first FF1600 Pole position and his first FF1600 rac
  3. Unreal. I hope this gets resolved. Sorry Roland.
  4. The points have been address well and I won’t beat a dead horse, but I will say that when I go to work every single day, first thing I do is put on a face mask, sanitize my work area and fill out a 5 question Covid-19 Status Reporting form, question #1 asks “if I or someone in my household in the last 14 days has been in contact with someone who has travelled outside Manitoba”. its just how it is right now - nothing more, nothing less. Keith - you’re always welcome here, you always have been.
  5. @Dnfwm for a real world explanation gimme a call (dm) and i’ll be glad to let you know what I know. The short version is that nothing is perfect and they know it. Not long ago I was in YYZ and had lunch with one of the OTA directors. They’re good guys and know it’s not perfect and they try to make the corrections to keep it close as possible and fair. In fact I had to laugh as they made the Vette and Camaro “less dominant” with HI changes, this is the opposite to the Nissan GTR, they had to make the GTR more competitive because the Vette was kicking it’s ass - Detroit is doing it right! m
  6. Yes - as @donrolandofurioso mentioned, brakes are a safety item and are a free mod, so go ahead and put the big brakes on. I did the same.
  7. @Jim Eh. That’s actually ludicrous. Autopac told me to wait a month and if nothing, then they will cover the loss...less my deductible of course, because it’s my fault some morally bankrupt sub-human multi-celled organism stole my new, never used trailer that was Locked up and insured on private property. don’t get me started on autopac. I love Manitoba, in fact I am a 5th generation Manitoban, with my great grandparents coming here in the 1880’s, but if there was 1 reason to leave it, MPIC would be that reason...unfortunately every other province has a similar deficiency. So I will stay...
  8. @MRS Joe That’s more than Likely what’s happening - we went through the area over the weekend and looked at the areas that would make sense. The hitch/ball lock wasn’t anywhere around, so I assume they pushed it out by hand, rested the locked tongue on the towing vehicle and pulled it with the chains until they got clear and then cut the lock off. it’s probably already a cheap coat of black and long gone. What goes around, comes around.
  9. Hey - my new trailer’s been stolen. So after literally years of deliberation and even some procrastination, I bought a new trailer for the race car in early April. It’s an all Aluminum BW Trail 18ft open flat deck. Bought it new, towed it to my Dads place in Hillside Beach, and there it sat locked up, anxiously awaiting the green light to the 2020 season. Apparently, during the night of Friday 15 May, some dirtbag asspipe with no soul decided they would take it. The RCMP have been notified, MPI is sending letters to tow truck operators and garages in the area but they hold little h
  10. Excellent Brian! And I might add that I think it’s once again Cool to ride a Honda 90 ...I’m sure there’s more, but this was great. thanks!
  11. Yes he was. Johnny Restored and currently races one of his cars, the #3 Datsun 710. Jim was an accomplished racer. He was a co-owner of a race prep shop here in Winnipeg and raced throughout the US and Canada, Datsuns, Formula Ford and Formula Super Vee with a Ralt RT4 before he retired. Look for a memorial decal on his old car this summer. matt
