Here is why the history part of the site was not updated in years:

I spent five years researching and writing a book. The Ontario Regiment (RCAC) celebrated its 150th anniversary in 2016 and I wrote its official history. The book is now available. Visit the Ontario Regiment Museum at 1000 Stevenson Road North in Oshawa during Museum hours to purchase a copy or click here.

The book is 320 pages and includes a large number of photographs, maps and line drawings.

I have been doing other military history writing but I will get back to the racing history in the winter of 2017-18. Check back for updates.

Site Updates: Late 2017, early 2018

I have been able to put aside my military history writing for a while to finally get back to updating the history part of this site. My intent is to make a number of changes this autumn.

I have been receiving some good photos from readers of the site and I will be adding these. The track database is far out of date, so that will be updated soon. I am also going to try to track down the cause of the intermittent slowness.

March 13, 2018:
Another update of the track database - lots of changes. I have also changed the database from Access to MySQL, which I hope will fix the slowness issue.

March 3, 2018: Added a Shearing Speedway program cover and photos for Oakwood Speedway, Richelieu Park, Langford Speedway and Peterborough Speedway.

December 21, 2017: Photos added for Davidson Airport.

December 20, 2017: Photos added for Lansdowne Speedway, Saratoga Speedway (QC) and Murillo Speedway.

December 13, 2017: The track database has finally been updated after about five years! There are more changes that I can cover here. Several tracks closed, some name changes, lots of facts updated and even some new entries. Also added were photos for Orillia Speedway, photo and program for Beamishill Speedway, photos for CNE Speedway, Edmonton Exhibition, Brighton Speedway (paved), Seymour Speedway, Mosport Speedway and Tweed Speedway.

November 29, 2017: The first update is to change how the historic photos appear. They are now a Facebook-style browser, the same as I changed the Brighton Speedway galleries prior to the 2017 season. While doing this update I took the time to add photos for Wasaga Beach Speedway, Aylmer Fairgrounds and Speedway Park (Concord, ON).
