CANAM Thunder II (1960-1974)

CANAM Thunder II (1960-1974)
Live the CANAM series - leading up from the pre-curser SCCA/USRRC sanctioned events on through inception in 1966 and thereafter through the glorious years right up until 1974. Watch as the nimble lightweights finally gave way to American big block thunder. Rule changes would exclude some but others would adapt and dominate. Manufacturers such as Lola, McLaren, Porsche and finally Shadow would each taste success but the contributions from Chaparral, Lotus,

Ringwood XXV

Ringwood XXV
This latest edition of Ringwood, our 25th, featured one new addition - a BRM P578 #12 with pilot Graham Hill created by Jimbo using a DArt body kit on top of a Vanski powered scratch built wire & brass chassis. This model would later go on to make a solid debut... and I have a feeling that we will see more of these models at future Ringwood events.Filming of 'Grand Prix' wrapped up just as the grid assembled for the first race of the event...

La Carrera Panamericana IV (1950-1954)
La Carrera Panamericana IV (1950-1954) This fourth edition of La Carrera Panamericana brought participants from all over Mississauga. This would also be the debut for the newly inspired SPT class - an additional subset of the SP class which would award bonus 'points' to those who were able to come as close to their proposed fastest lap time without going under. In order to receive bonus points which are added to their total lap count an entry must rec...

Internationale Meisterschaft VII
The 7th edition of the Internationale Meisterschaft would see new models in Sportscars (SP & SP+) and CANAM. Several, including Phil Hill in separate Ferrari 290MMs the Jaguar XK120 of the late S. Diaz and Jim Oldershaw in a Brumos Porsche 917/10 would take to the track each for the first time. Others returned with larger displacement motors, including Hawthorne, Hill and Herrmann. And then there was the obstreperous SCCA entry... All in a...

Targa Florio III (1970 & 1971)

Targa Florio III (1970 & 1971)
This third edition of the Targa Florio would see 13 entries register for the event but the team Pegaso entries of Scalera and Barba never did make the ferry to the island in time. The race would prove to be an unpredictable adventure, especially for Auto Delta pilots DeADAMICH and LENNEP along with the John Wyer entry of SIFFERT and REDMAN who both struggled early on in extremely slick and very unusual conditions. After several heats the course proved ...

Bonnier: And a questionable 1965 Lotus 20B piloted by Dave Charlton which failed to pre-qualify for the 1965 So...
