It would be nice but that won't happen just like they can't get the Langley Speedway going again.... I believe my Aunt was a Westwood girl or something like that I can remember seeing pictures of the track in a photo album when I was younger. My dad told me stories about when he pitted for one of his friends at Langley Speedway and he almost had the lap record but but he couldn't make the second lap because he went straight off the track in turn 1 into the blackberry bushes he never did get it. My dad said they where throwing the cable from the tow truck to him and he was telling them nope little further they couldn't see him or his car and when they finally got him hooked up all u could here was him swearing everytime he got hit by the blackberry bushes on the way out. But he got the lap record at the track across the line a couple weeks later. Real shame we lost things like that. Nice project though something to keep yea busy.

and i herd that lanlry will new run again because it is now a historical site and once that happens you can no longer oporate a busness on that site? wich i hope is not true because iv looked at pictures and looks like it would be a wicked track

I think the big reason they won't allow Langley to reopen is because its in Campbell Valley Park and they say it would be to noisy yet my old man says they always ran mufflers there. I kno there are people that have been trying for years to get it going the asphalt is still in great shape the outer walls have seen better days though.

west coast rally assoc. has been putting a couple rallycrosses (gravel) out in hope, the mayor is all for it. i could ask about the active mountain course in merritt. are club is really good with the major out there as well.

any new progress on your car?

coyeb

not to much more progress! all the sheet metal is cut and bent for the doors, front and rear firewalls, trunk, spoilor, dash and cockpit. its hard to get out and work on it, we'r building it at a buddys house in kelowna, and i only work on it the weeks i dont have my kid, wich is every other week, and my buddy races so his car is kinda taking priority untill the season is over.
