Road Cars / ISO: Honda/Michelin Challenge Civic
« Last post by itiladnam on December 26, 2020, 07:58:23 PM »
Hi All, I’m looking for a Honda cup civic to restore/drive. Any year caged or not. Hoping for something with a bit of history or provenance to bring back to original as raced appearance. Any leads appreciated as I haven’t been able to find much related to the series and cars. Cheers!

This bulletin highlights the importance of rigorously inspecting all suspension components of your race car.  While Hondas are mentioned, all competition vehicles need to be inspected regardless of make.

At the last race at Gimli Motorsport Park (GMP), two Honda race cars experienced front suspension failures.  The first failure occurred with a 1986 Honda CRX.  The right front upright of the hub assembly broke as the car was being driven down the front straight.  The driver was able to pull the vehicle off the track and to the side of the airport runway safely.

Upon inspection of the face of the break, there were the telltale signs of a pre-existing crack (see picture).

In very next race, a 1999 Honda Civic suffered a similar failure exiting T8.  This time it was the left front upright of the hub assembly failed from a similar crack.

Unfortunately, the body dropped down and the fenders covered the tires.  The driver was unable to steer the car or brake as the left front brake line was severed.  With no brakes and no steering, the driver no longer had any control of the vehicle.

The car collided with an Armco barrier on the outside of turn 9.  The car came to a violent stop, suffering front-end damage, ruptured radiator etc.  The ambulance was dispatched to the scene and officials at the accident kept the driver in his seat until they arrived.  The driver was unhurt, but the car was unable to continue.

It is recommended that people with Hondas of a similar vintage should have these components magna fluxed or similarly inspected on a regular basis to ensure they do not have pre-existing cracks.

General Announcements / WCMA Affiliates with GDS
« Last post by Sue Wilson on July 28, 2020, 01:23:35 PM »
Effective July 21, 2020, the Western Canada Motorsport Association (WCMA) is pleased to announce that we are now affiliated with the new Canadian ASN, Groupe de Développement Sportif (GDS). Sports Development Group in English.

GDS has delegated WCMA as the sporting authority for Western Canada. WCMA is looking forward to a positive relationship with GDS.


Statement from the new ASN:

Sports Development Group (GDS) has been assigned the task of rebuilding a foundation and structure for auto-sport in our country. GDS is a federally registered Not-For-Profit (NFP) organization with a three-member executive consisting of Francois Dumontier, Ron Fellows and Stephen Wetmore.

Francois is President and CEO of the Grand Prix of Canada; Ron is a retired racing driver and co-owner of Canadian Tire Motorsport Park; Stephen is the recently retired President and CEO of Canadian Tire Corporation. All three have a passion for the sport with diverse backgrounds bringing together a unique perspective and skill set in the rebuilding of Canada’s ASN.

As has been stated previously, GDS is starting from ground-zero, and with very little information on the business of the previous ASN. However, it is our intention to work inclusively with all five regions, CARS and stakeholders, to collectively provide a renewed ASN to cover the spectrum of auto-sport activities here in Canada.

What we have laid out is a strategy to create a united and collaborative effort from the regions, stakeholders and the new ASN, to build a viable National Sporting Authority for the country, thereby creating a sustainable future for the sport here in Canada.

Andy de Boon
President, WCMA

Race Cars / 1988 Alltrac for Sale Edmonton
« Last post by Binkie on March 06, 2020, 10:43:23 PM »
1988 Celica Alltrac. BC car, was brought here in 2008 but sat since. Basically it has rotted in the driveway. I need to let it go.

Has roll cage, Blitz turbo kit, Shadbolt cams, adjustable shocks with Eibach coil overs, bunch of other stuff. It has never been inspected for Alberta. Tow away only. It ran when parked, but will likely need a lot of work to turn it into a reliable road car. Maybe it could make a cheap ice racing machine. Put 200K KM but really don't know how many, dash was replaced.

This is not a drive away car, it is a major project. $1000 OBO. You must take it away yourself. I will not fix it prior to a deal. You cannot fix it here, it is take it or leave it. Please PM me if interested.

Thanks, Marc
