  1. .The race schedule of the Gimli glider weekend wasn't impacted at all. Since the aircraft landed on Saturday evening. After the days race schedule was run. The club secured all the entrances to the property with volunteers. In those days there were more roads and accesses to the track than there is today. Air Canada hired security guards that arrived Sunday morning to secure the perimeter of the aircraft. We ran a regular Sunday race schedule. With the help of the additional workers blocking the additional entrances. And the Kart Racers ran there regular Sunday schedule as well. (at the North end of the main straight, where the current Drag Racing paddock is located. I was Kart racing that weekend. And at the time believe I was Club Secretary. Dave Sargent was Race Director, John Webb was President.
  2. The Michelin class was a special version of a Honda Civic. Under the name 'Honda Michelin class'. A very base model with a 1300cc engine. (most road models were 1500cc at the time). You bought the car through a Honda dealer. Signed papers that it was being used for racing. And there was a lot with the car that included an exhaust bypass pipe. A bolt in roll cage, and a set of 390mm in diameter alloy wheels with Michelin TRX tires. The Michelin TRX tires were available in 365mm. & 390 mm. diameters rather than the conventional 13",14",15", etc. tire and wheel dimensions. Some might say Michelin's attempt to reinvent the wheel. (that may have been funnier live). The Honda Michelin was a National series. Obviously much bigger down east in Ontario & Quebec.

  4. I've had this video in beta format for almost 30 years. And I had it converted to a modern playable format. These two events are a blast from the past of the WSCC. I will bring to the next meeting. Or contact me if you would like to see this earlier.
  5. I see the date is set. Does it look like the club will want to use the facilities at Lyncrest Airport for lunches or briefings. I want to confirm this earlier than years past to make sure the clubhouse Flight Centre is available. Whomever is in charge this year. Please call me, Shawn Wolk at 204-223-4805. PS: Thinking of going with Chili this year.
