Car racing fans who attended Dinosaur Downs Speedway last weekend got a real taste of the past.
 
The Alberta Fairgrounds T-Racers brought their Model-T Ford race cars from around the province to the quarter mile dirt track.
 
Two of the cars were driven by locals: Peter Anderson of Hussar drove a car originally raced during the 1940's by the late Gordon Rasmussen of Standard, whose family still owns the car. John Gallagher was driving a car owned by the late Ken Hudgeon of Drumheller.
 
While both gave a good showing, Saturday's Model-T championship race was won by car number 99 driven by Patty Munroe of Sundre.
 
The other five classes of race cars were able to finish their heat races, however rain forced them to scrap their main event races.
 
The next races at Dinosaur Downs are August 11 - 12.
