still sorting out the Thunderbird Rally
So last week my information had the fourth annual Thunderbird in 1962. But website information for RallyBC had it beginning in 1957.
Further staring at the Ubyssey newspaper that is online has the first year as 1958. Typical of most newspapers the buildup to the event is bigger than the follow up. That is, no results posted.
But if 1958 is year one then 1962 should be year five.
More research is needed. Typical....
Of interest is a clipping from 1958 about the UBCSCC racing in Washington State and looking forward to the track being developed at Pitt Meadows by the BCSCC. That must be the SCCBC but it doesn't sound like Westwood. Interesting.
