Historic weekend here.

Post by 360gts »

A new track is opening this weekend near me here in Calgary Canada. First new track in decades.....almost easier to build an oil pipeline than build race track. (and we all know how difficult that is)🤣🤣🤣🤣
Have the vintage mini entered for a day of testing....will be the first time out for the mini after a two year ground up restoration.
Track looks really suited to a mini.
Here is a link to the new track.

Sounds like a move in the right direction. Are you going to the Ed Spreen race in Atlanta? Steve (CTR)

Don't think I'll make it.....been a long time since I did Road Atlanta...would be a long haul....
If the car runs well and I am satisfied that is ready....I just might go.
Cheers

Thanks Bruce....you and others have helped so much on this project....two years of cut knuckles...scratches and 'blue' words.🤣
It is on the trailer ready for the track testing tomorrow.
