Stirling Moss at Westwood

With the Westwood 50th Reunion coming up, I recently stumbled across this great video on YouTube featuring a lap of Westwood with Sterling Moss. Westwood Racing Circuit was Canada’s first purpose-built road race track, and was located in Coquitlam. Sadly, the track is long gone, but you can still see vintage cars in action, and bench race with the Westwood veterans at the River’s Edge Road Course in Mission, BC on July 17-19, 2009. See you there!

    Wow, I was there for that race! My introduction to motor racing when I was 11. Must send this off to my brothers who were also there on that rainy day. I remember it being so dramatic to see that Cooper Monaco on fire and when it pulled off the track at the Carousel another driver stopped to help the guy out of his car. Laurie Craig was one of my heroes from those days – last I heard of him he was a tow truck driver over here on Saltspring Island.
    I only raced once at Westwood – in a go-kart, probably around 1970. When I finally got myself into a racing car the old track was gone, sadly. Such good memories……
