The Legendary Westwood Racing Circuit opened on July 26, 1959
The Westwood 50th Anniversary Event was a very successful event with some amazing cars and drivers from the past taking part in this historic event.
The parade of cars was exciting to watch and the races spectacular, even had a chance to take a picture of Jacque Villeneuve’s winning race car with which he won 9 of 10 races.
The car is now owned by Jon, from Berkeley, California.

The 1965 – 950HP VW Bug, street legal (barely!), is one of the fastest V8 bugs in Canada, setting a time of 8.63 at 250Km per hour in a Quarter Mile Drag Strip. If it had wings it would fly… it even needs a parachute to slow it down.
“We have one of the fastest V8 Bugs in Canada and we like the fact that NitroLube Lubricants are helping us make these record breaking runs.”

NitroLube is now part of the Canadian Golden Hawk project which is attempting to break the “diesel land speed record.”
Golden Hawk team leader, Randy Pierce, stated,
“We are very careful in our selection of products to be used in the Golden Hawk Cummins (CMI) diesel powered Land Speed Streamliner. Only the best products and sponsors are chosen, and to select them we called on many tests and consulting testers. After testing many lubricants for our project, NitroLube came out the front runner and we feel that NitroLube Lubricants will help us obtain our goal of the ‘diesel land speed record’ at the Bonneville Flats. We chose NitroLube because they have the best super lubricants in the market”
NitroLube will be the main lubricant used in the Cummins engine of the World Record breaking vehicle, The GoldenHawk
