After a 30 year break operating a home club track, Brant Snow, Toronto Ontario Canada has started up again with a brand new 4 lane Olgilvie set-up in his basement. Several of us ran at his place as teenagers back in the day and it was a blast racing at his home again. Saturday saw Victor Czerwony sweep the night with victories in Nascar and Sportscar Hardbody classes. Jim Toye saw second place finishes in both classes. Porsche 962c's dominated the Sports class.
Next round : March 7th : Modified, followed by IMSA
Many thanks to Brant and his wife for welcoming us to their home !

Hey guys, I was talking to Brant on the weekend, he has requested that we try running in the opposite direction this week. Please change yours leads, if we like it he is going to rig something up to switch the direction on the track for a bit of variety. I would also like to mention Justin picked up a printer so we can print the results !
Short Track : Victor Czerwony Jim Toye Peter Czerwony
The Flying Czerwony family ends up on the newly constructed podium with "Jim Bob" Toye taking second place in a brand new entry, the Hooker Headers / Power Racing Lumina
Street : Victor Czerwony Jim Toye Terry Dalton
It was looking like a sure win for Jim Bob in the hard-charging Parma Flexi Ferarri when heavy traffic and several crashes saw Victor Czerwony in Victory Lane again.
A celebrity guest marshall ( and Weekend at Bernie's stunt-double ) Mr. Joe Guts was on hand to assist with the racing event. Obviously rumors of his untimely demise were grossly exaggerated. Thanks to Joe for helping out !

Her whole family will be in town, including Ted's grandchildren and she thought it would be nice for them to see us race at the place that has given us so many good times.
So, mark these dates on your calendar, Good Luck Racing !

Reason: change date
Brant liked the "running backwards" at the last event, so remember to change your leads, lap times were slower and there were less "offs", much easier on the marshalls.
We are welcoming 4 new members this month, Tim, Bob and Rodger representing Raceworld Canada, and long-time 1:24 racer and friend Andy Norris ( Chuck's brother, LOL ) and his crew chief Tom.
It's a long weekend for some people so please confirm your attendance with myself or Brant, "Chef Dianne" likes to have an idea on the number of guests for dinner. Again, many thanks to her, I don't know the menu for other racing clubs, but I can say I think we are the most well taken care of racer's around !
