Show & Shine Sunday, Sept 6th  10:00am – 2:00pm

Langley speedway is celebrating its 50 year anniversary. The speedway opened in 1965 and closed at the end of the 1984 season. There is a lot of history about the track and many fond memories. As it stands today, the property is part of the Campbell Valley Regional Park, owned by Metro Vancouver taxpayers. On Sept 25th, 2006, the Township of Langley voted to include the Speedway on its official list of Heritage Resources, effectively declaring it a heritage site. The Langley Speedway Historical Society had a clean-up at the track, exposing the walls and clearing the track surface and are now responsible for helping preserve the history of this track.

The Langley Speedway Historical Society (LSHS) is a registered, non-profit society, dedicated to the preservation and restoration of Langley Speedway, collecting photos, video and memorabilia. Langley Speedway was once the most famous oval track in this region. It should not be forgotten or destroyed. As members of our car club, we would like to help raise funds for the track by being a part of their 50 year anniversary event on September 6th. We are organizing a “Show & Shine” event at the track and would like as many members as possible to participate. In years past, the speedway has had as many as 800 people attend the event. We felt that through a combined effort of our club and other local car clubs, we could make the event more attractive and could improve on attendance. In order to raise funds for the track, we would like to recommend that each participating car contribute $25. Make cheques payable to Langley Speedway Historical Society and bring them to the track.

If you’d like to attend, please RSVP Larry Fuline at LFuline@cogeco.ca

Please plan to attend this worthwhile event!!!
