I posted this video a while back. The guy who put it together, John Denniston, was at the BC Historic Motor Races last weekend out at Mission. Figure I should post again with credit going to him.
Here's the description from the youtube link:
Go kart racing on the sprint track at Westwood Racing Circuit near
Vancouver BC, at Thrashers Corner near Seattle, Washington and at the
Puget Sound Go Kart Association's track south of Tacoma. As of 2011 only
the Tacoma track is still in existence. The film was shot in 1978 and
1979 and shows drivers from the Westwood Karting Association competing
in races sanctioned by the International Kart Federation. The film was
used to promote karting and the Westwood Karting Association at trade
shows. Drivers featured in the film include Ralph Oakes, Ruddy Chong,
Glen Mackenzie, John Fey, David Lehmann, Luckie Kuosmanen, Kevin Nelson
and Kerry Nelson. The film was shot on 16mm film with an Arri ST by John
Denniston of Vancouver. Editing was done by Jana Fritsch of Montage
Editing in Vancouver. Music is from Little Mountain Studios also in
Vancouver. The voice over is former CBC announcer Gordon Hunt. Sound
recording was by John Denniston which was mixed in an empty CBC studio
by a man whose name I can't remember. The final mix was done by Alpha
Cine in Vancouver. The copyright to this film belongs to John Denniston.
I recognize a couple names: Ralph Oakes was karting in the 1960s and I saw a story on him in senior magazine -- apparently he's still karting; and John Fey -- a U.S. karter who came up to Canada and when I helped a karter down in the U.S. 25 years ago John was still racing.
