  2. Thank you to all who participated in the drive. Once again, the weather and scenery were awesome. We had seven beautiful cars that were able to do what they were designed for. Nice for us to have 2 Audi R8s and a Maserati Grand Turismo with us!
  3. I noticed that I gave two meeting times in my original post. We will meet at 11 am and leave no later than 11:30. Please make sure you have a full tank of gas. Should be a blast as always.
  4. That will be no problem. Glad you two can make it!
  5. There will be a one night only showing of the Ferrari 318 documentary at Mcgillivary theater Oct 11th at 7PM. I'm not sure if it will be in the VIP theatre or regular. Hope to see you there.
  6. Yes, I've been meaning to post a date. It will be on Saturday Oct 7th at noon at our usual rendezvous..Canadinns on regent and plessis at 11 am.

Please bring family members and friends in any vehicle and enjoy some good times and conversations...rain or shine. Hope to see you there. Pete
  9. 2017 Spring Drive

    Unfortunately I'm not able to plan a drive this spring but I'm planning a meet and greet at Skinners in Lockport on Saturday July 15th to celebrate the club's 65th anniversary. Some of the founding members of the club would like to meet some of the current members and have suggested getting together. The location is at Skinners restaurant on River Rd at noon. We can assemble in the parking lot and after getting something to eat, we can go for a drive in the area or convoy back to the city via the scenic River Rd.
  10. Congrats to Frank. Such a deserving honor for him. I wish I could be there but have a commitment that afternoon.
  11. Local racer Daniel Burkett is racing at 12 hrs of Sebring live on imsatv.imsa.com today. He's in car # 20 in PC class ( prototype Challenge)
  12. Update: Jordan

    Hey buddy. We hope all goes well at the hospital. Speedy recovery.
  13. It's time to get your tickets for this year's banquet. The evening will take place at the Holiday Inn at 2520 Portage Ave. Saturday Oct. 22 at 6 pm. Dinner at 7 pm. Please register and pay on DLB Racing website. Tickets are still only $40.00 per person. Free indoor parking. We are also looking for interesting prizes for the silent auction. It would be nice to have a few more for the women. Please list your attendance and possibly a prize on this thread so I can prepare for the event. Cheers
  14. Thanks for the kind words everyone. We have such awesome people in our club. Good times!
  15. I've been looking at doing something for a fall drive but so far due to serval factors including a late season for both race and auto slalom, it looks like the next best date for me would be Oct 15. Not sure if anyone wants to go that late or if there will be any leaves left. If someone else has the time to organize something else earlier, by all means go for it.
  16. Ya it was an awesome drive. Thanks to all who came. The traffic was non existent. The road to Ingolf was freshly resurfaced and the highlight of the day. I think we passed 3 or 4 cars on the drive back on 44. And the tamarack pine trees were in full fall colors.
  17. My cel number is 204-291-4056 if anyone needs to get ahold of me.
  18. Yes we are still on for Saturday. A few other cars are coming on top of the list here. We will meet at the usual location at Canad Inns at Regent and Plessis. We'll meet at noon and leave around 12:30. Heading West on Dugald and towards the whiteshell. There will be a few washroom stops and refreshments/gas. Should be back in the city by 5:00 latest. See you there rain or shine.
  19. 2016 Spring Drive?

    Turns out I'm busy the weekend of the 28th. I'd be happy to pass the torch to Jim if he wants to pursue the Minaki drive. I will work on the drive in in Morden for a later date.
  20. 2016 Spring Drive?

    The Minaki run sounds good. It will be interesting to see what happens with fire situation. I will be out of town May long but I could definitely do a day drive on the following Saturday May 29th . The other event I am working on is a drive out to Morden to the Stardust Drive In. Waiting to hear back from them. Maybe we can request a car themed movie.
  21. Formula V for sale

    1975 Lynx Caracal FV. Motor has been used for half a season and tires have a whole season on them. Tires and motor should be good for a whole season. Asking $ 4500.00 PM me for more details and pics. Pete
  22. I heard from 2 people that there was a new Mclaren driving around the city yesterday. Anyone else see this amazing car?
  23. Gord Leach.

    He was an outstanding car builder and stand up guy. We will definitely miss him around the camp fires at the track. He had a twisted sense of humor and that's rare these days. My heart goes out to his family and closest friends. A few of us from the club will be driving out to Regina. PM me if you need a lift.
