Here is why the history part of the site has not been 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: Autumn 2017

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 The track database is far out of date, so that will be updated soon.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.

November 29: 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).
