Overview

The Canadian-American Challenge Cup brought the best available technology, the best engineers, and the greatest drivers together to battle it out for supremacy. Legendary drivers such as Jackie Stewart, John Surtees, Denis Hulme, Bruce McLaren, Dan Gurney, Mario Andretti, Phil Hill, and many others fought for top honors in these unlimited sports cars. Designers, engineers, and mechanics pushed technology to the edge to design, build, and develop the ultimate weapon for the track. In turn, the series spawned some of the greatest sports cars of all time such as the Lola T70, the Chaparral 2G, the Porsche 917, and the McLaren M8, which were among an enormous group of constructors that also included Shadow, Porsche, Ferrari, and Ford.

With more than 230 black and white and 50 color archival photos, Can-Am Photo History overviews each year of competition from 1966 to 1974, illustrates the wild, wonderful cars, and provides intimate interviews of the biggest names in the sport such as George Follmer, Dan Gurney, John Surtees, Phil Hill, Denis Hulme, Jackie Oliver, Mario Andretti, Jim Hall, Parnelli Jones, Tyler Alexander, Teddy Mayer, and Peter Bryant. The outrageous, big-block V-8s and the turbocharged 12 cylinder powerplants are detailed in a special sidebar.

    Can-Am Time Machine, Part 2

    This is the sequal to Pete's 'Can-Am'. Together, they form the finest distillation of this unique period in American road racing. The chapters cover the high (and low!) points of each year of the original series, interspersed with in-depth interviews with many of the principals, including drivers, owners, and managers. The best summary of this golden era is nicely stated in Pete's interview with Porsche & Shadow driver Jackie Oliver: 'They were big bruiser sports cars, and they were quick, spectacular, and sounded terrific. It was primarily an engine series, big horsepower. And there was the ability within the regulations to innovate - Jim Hall's Chaparral team, for example. The cars were fun to drive because you could unstick the back end. They had a lot of brute force, a lot of torque. I love torque. But they were quite crude. They were enormous, and you couldn't get a nice smooth slide. Nervous cars, twitchy, edgy. Today, you could build a car that would beat them easily with half the power.' The interview is typical of the fresh insight this book adds to Pete's earlier book. Both are must-have's!
