Our (home town) race, The Vancouver Molson Indy was the focal point of the year, for us.   a time to catch up with news, and meet so many of our racing friends, in person, each year.  

It was a sad day for our local race fans, when Vancouver decided to pull out of the Indy Car Series schedule.    Never understood it !
