Guilty, Your Honour!
I haven't posted any photos from 2005 yet, and
I have enjoyed being a spectator in the grandstands for all of 2006, and I took all my photos in the pits. (I promise to post the best shots soon.) I finally hoofed it out to turn one in the Formula 2 race in round 5 at Mission Raceway, and here is Troy Burstyk leading the race in lap 2.
Note that this is the hard braking zone at the end of the front straight.

I stopped in to visit Michael Taylor in the pits at the Calgary nationals in 2006.
We were neighbours in the Shannonville pits at the nationals in 1999.

Even champions can use a push now and then.

I was fortunate enough to be offered to present my photos at an exhibit at Valentino's restaurant in Victoria (at the corner of Blanshard and Broughton) in the month of February 2005!
I recommend the British Brekky...

I've been a Westwood-junkie since 1987 - click the WMRC logo to see why...

I raced a stock '89 Yamaha TDR250 in Formula 3 at Mission Raceway
in rounds 4 & 5 on October 2 & 3, 2004,
and in round 4 on October 5, 2003.

Apparently, I finished ninth in both rounds, but I was sure I was tenth both times.
Click the photo below for photos from 2003, taken by John Schwarze... I used to take pictures of him when he roadraced, so - thanks John!
I'm #42. I finished tenth. Click here for photos.
Thank you, Clearbrook Motorsports, for sponsoring the WMRC Formula 3 class in 2003.

Also, in 1999, I raced an '85 Yamaha RZ350 at Shannonville Motorsport Park.

Steve helped me at the Test N Tune at Mission on Monday 8th September 2003 by pointing out that my killswitch was off.
After a few wheelies, of course.
