MARFC Goes Road Racing at Waterford Hills Raceway in 2018!

A nice day of racing at Waterford Hills today. Representing the club was John Jackson & Rand Thompson. Winner of the Helmet/Uniform bag was Kitchener Ontario racer Sean Gibson who races a 1959 Austin Healey Bugeye Sprite. Very interesting background story on the car. Sean’s dad Colin Gibson raced the car in the 80’s winning a race with it at Waterford Hills in 1987. The car was sold and when Colin got the opportunity last year to buy it back he jumped at the chance. Colin and Sean went through the entire car to get it prepared for racing again and Sean was able to win with it this weekend! 1)  (L to R) Waterford Hills representative Keith Price, Sean Gibson, and MARFC Board member Rand Thompson
