  1. The Datsun 510 list was having a discussion about early adopters of the Datsun 510 in racing and this rally came up. I'll post some links for your viewing pleasure. There are mentions of Manitoba in this video and even my home province of New Brunswick. Here you go.... This ’68 510 car #145 from California competed in the June 1968 Shell 4000 Rally from Calgary Alberta to Halifax Nova Scotia Canada. The team of William Huber and Zeke Lean finished 44th out of 55 finishers. There were three other 510s in the rally, with Van Louie/Galk in car #118 finishing 12th, Henderson/Henderson in car # 166 finishing 31st, and Stiles/Jackman in car #156 finishing 35th. Other Datsuns included a team of three Cedric H130-U finishing in 4th (#135 Van Bergen/Manson, photo), 21st (Horton/Deak) and 45th (Ross/Bird), plus the SSS 1300 411(?) car # 169 of Middlemess/Lynch which finished 23rd. All of the Datsuns finished the grueling 4000 mile rally, which was won by Scott Harvey and Ralph Beckman in a Plymouth Barracuda S. There a decent Chrysler Canada promotional film about the rally on Youtube, and the Datsuns can be spotted several times throughout. https://youtu.be/4-uqhn8awm0 Photos by Jean Calvin from the Petersen Digital Archive. There’s many more if you go there and search on 1968 Shell Rally, but that was the only 510 photo. There are many photos of the Cedrics in action, though. https://archive.petersen.org/pages/home.php Regarding the Shell 4000 photos you posted. My friend Marcel from Edmonton maintains THE source for all information related to the original Trans-Canada Rally/Shell 4000 Rally. If you are unaware of it you should give it a glance, you can find it here: https://www.shell-4000-rally.org/ The second photo in your original posting with the H130 was codriven by my friend Paul Manson of Toronto Ontario Canada. He passed away several years ago. He was in a different year navigator for a winning Datsun entry. An article about the 1967 event with a picture of him is here: https://www.theguardian.pe.ca/wheels/the-story-of-the-trans-canada-rally-when-racers-took-on-canada-pre-pavement-274928 Several other friends were on that 1968 Shell 4000, including J.Robert Henderson and Phil Henderson (they are not related) and at the time both were from Western New York. Both of them are now associated with the wonderful International Motor Racing Research Center (IMRRC) which is maintained and associated with the race facilities at Watkins Glen, NY. Info on the IMRRC can be found here: https://www.racingarchives.org/ The IMRRC is a wonderful and well funded undertaking which is enhancing the racing collections with a collection of rally sport items. I know that upon my demise all of my personal archives will be donated to the IMRRC and become part of the rallysport archives, including lots of Datsun materials. I still have two Datsun 510 rally cars, one of which is prepped for historic stage rallies and historic stage rally marathons. But back to the IMRRC. Last year the IMRRC held a Saturday presentation (Racing Through The Trees) about the history of rallysport in North America. There was a lot of information about the Shell 4000 presented, some by a great Navigator who ran many times, once in a Citroen DS11 with J.Robert Henderson driving it. My friend Randy Graves maintains an extensive collection of historic rallysport information from the olden days. He has posted some of my pictures which may be of interest to some of you. By the way, my other historic rally car is a 1967 Alpine-Renault A110 Berlinette. It was on display in the IMRRC Lobby (along with a modern Subaru rally car) as part of their promotion of the Racing Through The Trees exhibit and presentations. Find that IMRRC Display here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/rwgraves/albums/72157707161297951 If any of you are interested in my A110, there are pictures posted by Randy Graves at this album of his online collection, along with a couple of pictures of my 1971 Datsun 510SSS rally car which I built for the 1997 Panama-Alaska Stage Marathon Rally. I still have it, and presently it is in CT getting a rebuild of the engine for the 2020 season. Sadly due to COVID19 there is no 2020 rally season, so hopefully I can run it again in 2021 on some events. The Alpine is also taking advantage of the No-2020 COVID fiasco, so it is likewise getting an engine refresh so we can run in 2021. The album with the A110 and 510 pix is located here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/rwgraves/albums/72157697851860251 If you wallow around the various albums which my friend Randy Graves (also an A110 owner) has established you can find it here. There is a LOT of Datsun material from the old days there, especially on many of the larger Canadian events such as the Canadian Winter Rally (which I funny enough never ran in a Datsun over the years, always something else). In his earlier years Randy Graves was Scott Harvey's co-driver (Scott as you posted won the 1968 event with Ralph Beckman; both Scott and Ralph are still alive and well, and recently Scott was inducted into the Sports Car Club of America's Hall of Fame during a ceremony in Las Vegas in 2019... In any case, you can find the list of Randy's albums (there are FIVE pages, so scan them all) located here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/rwgraves/albums/page1 Apologize for writing such a long post, but it is so rare that anyone these days is interested in the history of rallysport in North America, that I wanted to chime in with some information related to the Shell and other topics of historical DATSUN interest.
  2. Are you interested in Rally racing? Looking to get involved with either volunteering or competing in a Rallycross or Stage Rally event with the WSCC? In order to get there, we need interested people to get involved with attending events in the surrounding areas and volunteering their time. Being a part of a Regional or National rally event is a great way to understand what it takes to put on a Rally event locally in Manitoba. Without a group of volunteers that is committed to learning what it takes to make an event happen, Rallysport in Manitoba will never happen. We need you! May 20th is the Headwaters Regional Rally event in Walker, Minnesota. Full details here: https://www.americanrallyassociation.org/headwaters It's less than a 5 hour drive to the event, and only a 1-day commitment. This is a great opportunity to get involved.
  3. *This is the final lapping event of the year - the Portage and Gimli Ice Racing weekends are jam-packed full of racing both days, so there is no opportunity for lapping sessions. Come out and cheer on the racers instead! What? Icecross style event (driving on a frozen pond, on a track carved out of the snow, in an attempt to get around the course in the quickest times possible)Where?Lake Shirley - Off Murdock road, it's the water ski pond in the summer time --> Google Maps Link: https://goo.gl/maps/64jLxrbogHP2When?10:45 am - Driver's Meeting --> Location: TBD (We'll just congregate together)11:00 am - 4:00 pm - Ice-cross Lapping --> Let's rip!We will be doing rotations with the other two groups, so it will run in the following order: 15 min. studded, 15 min. rubber-ice, 15 min. Icecross, repeatHow Much? Entry Fee: $60 --> We pay what the ice racers pay, plain and simple What Do I Need? 1. A current SNELL “M” or “SA” helmet - SA is strongly encouraged - SA helmet mandatory for all vehicles with factory or aftermarket installed roll protection 2. WSCC Membership --> See here: http://forums.wscc.mb.ca/index.php?/topic/11103-2018-membership-process-msr/ 3. Winter Tires --> all season tires are not permitted 4. Register for the event on MotorsportReg (make sure to sign up under the Icecross saturday section --> https://www.motorsportreg.com/events/2018-wscc-ice-race-event-3-lake-shirley-winnipeg-sports-car-club-743156 5. Bring a bucket to put all your belongings in (Rubbermaid tote, for example), as you will need to remove all loose items from your vehicle before you head out on the track. 6. Vehicle must be dimensionally wider than it is tall (same restriction as Autocross) - trucks are permitted as long as they measure wider than they are tall 7. Vehicle must have functional tow points (either factory locations that are intact and easily accessible, or aftermarket hooks in place) How Do I Sign Up? Follow the links above, or text/call me at (204) 294-0286 with any questions/concerns. To answer some common questions: 1. No, you do not need any special modifications to your vehicle. You can show up with your daily-driver (Toyota Tercel, or EVO X, doesn't matter), or your full blown race-car. This is about having fun no matter what you're in, and challenging your skills as a driver. The only requirement is that the vehicle be wider than it is tall (identical rules to Autocross) 2. Do I need a WSCC membership? Yes, this is mandatory for insurance purposes 3. Where can I get a helmet? You can either borrow one from a friend (lots of people in the city that do Autocross, or HPDE that have purchased helmets in the past.

This event allows you to do everything you already do when we get a snow storm, but without the worry of being charged for it. 5. Will I become Ken Block / Colin McRae once I've completed this event? No... But if you keep getting involved and participating, then you absolutely have a chance! This event puts a lot of smiles on the faces of participants, so come on out and join the fun!

  5. Official Event Details: What? Icecross style event (driving on a frozen pond, on a track carved out of the snow, in an attempt to get around the course in the quickest times possible) * Please note that this will not be ice-cross in its true sense, as cones may or may not be used, however future events will stick to a regulated set of rules. Why? The purpose of this event is to start establishing a rally community here in Manitoba once again. This event will serve to get drivers out and interested, and is also convenient due to us sharing the track with the ice racers.

  6. Official Event Details: What? It's a 2-part event: 1. Race School - Al Marcoux will be leading a racing school, designed to teach drivers the basics of racing, and techniques for getting around an ice track as quickly as possible. These techniques will be very applicable to any type of rally driving you wish to pursue. * The Race School is mandatory if you wish to do hot laps of the ice race track for this event. No race school = no lapping 2. Ice-cross style event (driving on a frozen pond, on a track carved out of the snow, in an attempt to get around the course in the quickest times possible * Please note that this will not be ice-cross in its true sense, as cones may or may not be used, however future events will stick to a regulated set of rules.

  7. I'm gauging interest in an event that would take place on January 7th. Event: Icecross, done on the Ice Racing track during the test day for the Ice Racing guys. This is still very much being developed, however I need to see if there's enough committed interest so I can know if we can do it. In addition to running the event on that day, there is a racing school being put on by the ice racers that would be invaluable for anyone looking to get more into racing. They will be teaching the basic maneuvers, so this would be a great opportunity to gain some experience and learn from the best around! Location: Mazenod pond, on Dugald road across from Tim Hortons (within the city). Cost: approx. $40 per person for multiple timed runs. Vehicle: bring anything. You'll need a helmet, more details on that to come. If you are interested in this event, please respond here, PM me, or text me at (204) 294-0286 and I will gather a list together. More details to come as this develops.
  8. Hey everyone, I just wanted to take the opportunity to introduce myself. My name is Jared, and I'm the new Rally Director for the WSCC. I'm excited to be taking on this role, and am looking forward to bringing a rally scene back to Manitoba! We've had a long history of Rally Racing in Manitoba, however the last number of years has seen a hiatus in activity. As your new rally director, I will be organizing events to begin in the new year that will include both Rallycross and TSD (Time Speed Distance). The hope is that we will build a community interested in having regular rally events, and gather momentum as we build towards an eventual goal of participating in full stage rally events. One step at a time! If you are interested in any type of rally event, whether it be participating as a driver, or helping out as a volunteer (ideally doing both), feel free to contact me and I'll start assembling names and interest. - Jared - Rally Director, WSCC
