1948 Digney Speedway, part one


There was a bit of a Digney Speedway reunion today (Sunday) in Burnaby. Saw a few old time racers. Reminded me that I haven't done much on this blog lately and have a few things I scanned for a previous reunion in the archive. So I'll spend a little time getting these things posted.

Apologies if anything has already been put up here.
