A Flashback – The 1974 Province 500

The 1974 Province 500 Program Cover

Thanks to Robert Barg for providing a copy of the spectator program for the Province 500, which closed the Westwood racing season on Sunday, October 13th, 1974. The co-winners of the first “500” in 1960 were Bob Constabaris (of ‘Mr. Mike’s’ restaurant fame) and Jerry Barbour. All of the winners from 1960 to 1973 were shown in the 1974 program. There are a lot of still-familiar names on that list.

See the complete 1974 Entry List below, with many more well-known names. Oh yes, the 1974 race took the typical 7 hours to complete. The winners (repeating from 1973) were local heroes Bert Laakmann and Charly Godecke (Porsche 911S), second went to Andy Barcheck and Loren St. Lawrence (Datsun 510) from Salem, and the podium was completed by Jim Robertson and John Holgate in a Lotus.
