  • SAD NEWS-Peter Wright

    I am very sad to announce the passing of a former ice racing competitor Peter Wright, who lost his short battle with cancer. Peter raced back in the 80's and 90's ,mostly in the stud class running a yellow and blue Ford Fiesta. Peter was a great competitor and was famous for his big smile and infectious laugh.
    There will be a celebration of life for Peter on Friday April 26th at the MT. Albert Lions Club-Main Hall, 5057 Mt. Albert Road in Mt albert from 1:00pm to 5:00 pm(Personal Tributes begin at 2:00pm).
    Everyone is welcome to speak, share memories and bring photographs.

    I raced with Peter in the 90's Loctite Permatex Solo 1 series. He was a great guy. We both had Datsuns and used to talk all the time. I had seen that his car was for sale. Does anyone know if it was bought?
