Favorite Drivers of All Time
I have 3 favorite Drivers , although there are many more I admire. they are (in no order Jackie Stewart, Mario Andretti and Mark Donohue. Jackie because of his style , humour concerns for safety and wily Scottish business skills. Mario because of his friendly personality , versatilty and outright speed and Donohue because of his engineering skills andbecause of his book " the Unfair Advantage" a great read for any one interested in Motorsports.

Classic Cars of the future
What will be the Classic car of the future? That is the question,,as the baby boomers age, they have been the last 10 years buying up the car of their youth, 60's and 70's Muscle and sports cars , cars they remember from the "good old days". But what cars will be remembered and restored when the 30 somethings of today retire and find themselves with time on their hands and a hankering for the nostalgia. I would say2 come to mind, the first generation VW GTI and the Honda CRX, it is getting harder to find nice clean unmolested cars these days , but when I was in college in the early mid Nineties they were everywhere. What does everyone else think?....

How come there isnt a British Car Swapmeet in Victoria? Lord knows there are probably dozens of people who have bits and pieces in there garages and basements who would be happy to get rid of themI guess one could go to the big swapmeet out at the Saanich Fairgrounds but it seems to me that that is mainly for Domestic Car fans. Whatever happened to the Victoria HotRod/Motorsports Show that used to happen at the Esquimalt Arena?
Oh and as a side note I am looking for Barn Space for Classic Car storage, no Power, lights or heat required just 4 walls a roof and a door, at least enough for 10 cars. please...anyone.

Lack Of Motorsports in Victoria
Welcome to my Blog! I created this to initiate discussion on all types of Motorports/Performance and Collector cars in Victoria B.C , Canada. My bigget complaint is the lack of Motorsports in Victoria! i was very disapointed in the demise of the proposed facility in Cowichan, as I think it would have brought lots of people and revenue dollars to the South Island region . As well as providing a safe controlled enviroment for all motorsports activites in Victoria.and Yes I do attend Western Speedway, I am a driver of a 1993 Honda Civic in the Ministock division, which is huge fun and a good start to racing.But i think that there should be more Slaloms and even drifting could easily be a venture to consider at western as well.Is it a lack of interest? is it a demographic?I am interested to hear..
