Sports Car
In Western Canada
Tom Johnston

Compiled by a man who has been involved in professional and amateur racing for over 40 years, this book is an invaluable historical study of sports car road racing in Western Canada. After racing at more than 50 facilities, Tom Johnston visited many more in BC and the prairies to document and photograph the lost race tracks, the failed attempts to build new tracks, and the still operating tracks. This book includes Johnston's exploration of racing tracks built over WWII airfields and a detailed look at the long tradition of amateur home built "specials."
