In case you missed it, the current issue of Inside Track Motorsport News has the national Canadian motorsport magazine entering the very political fray of Race City vs. the City of Calgary with an article written by veteran Calgary journalist Robert Rooney.

{mospullquote text=the people I have to negotiate with ... and their boss - the mayor - hates us for some reason....;; person=Art MacKenzie;; position=right;; type=quote;;}The piece features very candid and blunt assessments of his position by Race City owner Art MacKenzie. Rooney writes that MacKenzie believes the best case scenario is that the recently approved motion directing the City to negotiate a five year extension to the lease would provide opportunity for Race City to prove its worth to the city.

But as MacKenzie puts it, "the people I have to negotiate with ... and their boss - the mayor - hates us for some reason."

JustTurnLeft.ca acknowledges Inside Track Motorsport News, editor Greg MacPherson and writer Robert Rooney for their continued support of  motorsport in Western Canada.

The article is part of the November 2009 installment of the monthly Mac's Western Motorsports Report. The issue is at newstands now.
