more tis the season for racing indoors

Ad for the Agrodome. Foreign stocks. Minis, VWs, Renault Dauphines! I've even seen mention of 3/4 midgets from the U.S. coming up but haven't seen photos of them. Let me know if you have any shots.

Racing at the Agrodome happened in the mid-1960s and again in the early 1970s. Twenty years after that B.C. Place Stadium had a couple years of one off races indoors. Legends cars and the mini stocks. Of course they've had yearly appearances of truck/tractor pulls and monster truck shows for a long time.

The ad comes from The Ubyssey, the UBC student newspaper. You gotta wonder about their sense of humour judging from the news item just above the ad. Too many nights in smoke filled rooms studying, the Agrodome being just another of the students' study rooms.
