Historic Racing in the Pacific Northwest
Now here is something you don't see
everyday...the early Minis were notorious for
breaking off their wheels around the studs. This is Bob again, this
time on the Mount Doug Hill
Climb. Those early wheels did not stand up to taking corners. Bob took
the wheel back to
the dealer and got a set of 4 new Cooper wheels for no charge..."Oh" he
mention to the dealer that the Min had been driven a bit quick.
makes this picture even more special, it was done with a Kodak
quick note if you are driving on a set of early wheels you might just
to check for cracks!
Number 73 finding itself further south at "Pacific Raceway" near Kent
This is the first lap bunch up.
The first Dune Buggy in Victoria BC was made by Bob and his dad. Here
we have Bob using it for a trials car.
