The 'ol raceway

The track was opened in the early to mid 60's, and closed in '84. They're were nascar race's held in the 70's here. Now it sit's unused.

"The Langley Speedway Historical Society (LSHS) has lobbied governments in the area to preserve the facility, holding clean-up events at and around the track. In 2006, the GVRD Parks Committee voted unanimously to support heritage listing of the speedway. The GVRD Board also voted unanimously to support the listing. In September 2006, the Council of the Township of Langley voted unanimously to include Langley Speedway on its Heritage Resource Listing. The LSHS is currently working with the GVRD staff and other interested groups in its efforts to preserve the site and promote it for various event uses, including car shows." - Wiki

I still remember sitting on the hill watching the races. Great pics. Thanks for sharing, Crawn.

Thanks Clutchy. I wish the buildings were still up, but they would probably be ruined if that was the case. Either way, it was still nice to see its not overgrown.

Very nice! I'd love to sneak out there with a go-cart (or two...or more) and rip around the track a bit.

That is an awesome idea.

Do not attempt to stop with hands or genitals.

I take it they are maintaining it now as it looks to be in much better condition then the last time I was there.
