14 Nov Special Event at November Meeting!
The VRCBC’s November general meeting (Tuesday November 13th) was a very special one, particularly for all those who remember the Westwood Racing Circuit. The meeting was held at the Mark’s Auto Body (here) location in Port Coquitlam.
Many current Mission Raceway regulars will know Dino Milacic from his very fast peddling of the white MioDino Racing BMW 330i. Dino grew up going to Westwood however and although he was too young to have ever had a chance to race there, he has never forgotten it. Earlier this year Dino decided to permanently honour the memory of the track by turning one wall (Yes, one whole wall!) of their PoCo shop into a Westwood mural. It’s all there – from the mountains in the distance, to the trees, grass, dirt and asphalt, plus the cars of course, in the foreground. And as a special bonus, the sky is blue and it can be guaranteed – for the first time ever – that it will never rain at this ‘Wetwood’!
After the regular meeting finished, there was a ‘formal’ ceremony to ‘unveil’ the mural. Guests are always welcome at VRCBC meetings and a lot of Westwood veterans joined us for this one. It was a great time and the VRCBC would really like to thank Dino and Bobby Milacic for hosting us. Check out the Mark’s Auto Body Facebook page (here) for more on the event.
Thanks to Brent Martin for providing us with all of these photos. He has more coming soon – check back.
