Back around 1980,three of us took my Fiesta up to Westwood raceway,just East of Vancouver,BC.
The caretaker pulled up in a MKIII wagon.I had no clue as to what it was until he told me.

Westwood was so much fun back in the day when certain autocross clubs were granted access to the track. I remember on a few occasions blasting my Lotus Cortina around the track and again later scaring my Father with his BMW 320i, what a shame that they let that track slip through their fingers?

I was also there in '86 with the Lotus club,
during the World's Fair.

I remember when the track opened, I was very young but my father was a real enthusiast and took me there often. I have some old standard 8 film from the early 60s that is in poor condition but I found a 1970 photo with a Cortina in the pack.

Here is another taken in later years of a car that you will recognise if you were an autocross guy at Boundary Bay, It's Randy Custer's very potent 105e at Westwood.
