After a lengthy discussion that touched on everything from reducing red tape at city hall to helping non-profits to legal ramifications, mayor and council approved WL Forestry/NAPA Thunder Mountain Speedway’s request to help repair a patch of broken asphalt on the race track so the club does not have to cancel the race it plans to host Aug. 26.
An area of about two feet by two feet is breaking up and is in desperate need of a three-inch thick patch four feet long by four feet wide, vice-president Bob Lowen told the Tribune prior to the Tuesday, Aug. 23 council meeting.
“It just happened at our last race meet,” he said. “It was chunking out pretty good and is a good sized pothole now. We have to fix it because it’s right in the travel lane of the race track.”
Lowen sent a letter to the city, dated Aug. 10, asking for assistance that was received at the meeting.
For the tri-race the plan is to have competitors race in Williams Lake on Friday, Aug. 26, Quesnel on Saturday, Aug. 27 and Prince George on Aug. 28.
The race in Williams Lake gets underway at 6 p.m.
