Bruderheim is travelling back in time this summer to the world of post-war automotive racing.
 
On July 29, the town is hosting a Model T race at the Bruderheim Agricultural Grounds.
 
"There won't be a better car event this summer, if you like cars, you'll like this, that I can guarantee," stated Matt Hotte, an organizer of the Model T races.
 
The first Model T races were put on by the Lions Club during World War II as a fundraiser for displaced children. Crowds averaging 15,000 to 20,000 witnessed the modified cars race around a dirt track.
 
"The class was just a standard Model T, you had to cut the back of the body off or make the body and lower it down but you pretty much had to run a Model T," explained Hotte.
 
A few of the cars in the series are restored vehicles that participated in the races in Calgary during the original fundraisers.
 
"Some fellows in Calgary resurrected this a few years ago in High River, there's about four or five races per year," said Hotte.
 
Although the Model T races are a big part of the event, it's not the only thing happening that day.
 
The track will be maintained by antique equipment and the drivers and race cars will be on display, the event will also include a car show.
 
So far, the response in Bruderheim and area has been excellent, with the Lion's Club hosting a supper and the firefighters planning a breakfast.
