|Can-Am : Early Days - 1962-1966
|1-DVD : 106 minutes Quality : Good to Excellent
|The Can-Am Series ran from 1966-1974, and captured the hearts of racing fans all over the
world. Unrestricted engine size, innovative ground effects technology, movable wings,
spoilers, even artificially created ground effects using vacuum, all combined to generate
incredible speeds in some of the most beautifully designed cars to ever grace a race track.
This DVD focuses on the USRRC in the years before the Can-Am Series began.
|1962 Player's 200 - Mosport Park, Ontario (26 min)
A full color, high quality film of the 1962 race from the famous Mosport track in Ontario, Canada.
The track had just opened in 1961, and many drivers were seeing the circuit for the first time.
1963 USRRC - Road America, WI (22 min)
This is a b&w film covering the 1963 Road America 500 from Elkhart Lake Wisconsin. With a crowd
estimated at 38,000, fans saw the peak of the Elva Mark VI and Mark VII success, which was a
template for what the Can-Am Series cars would become in just a couple years. Notable drivers were
Don Yenko wielding a Scarab, Roger Penske in a Ferrari 250 GTO, and Shelby American teaming with
Steve McQueen to run a Shelby Cobra, driven by Bob Bondurant and Dave McDonald.
Quality note : the video and sound are subpar on this film, but still very watchable!
1963 L.A. Times Grand Prix - Riverside, CA (10 min)
Another clear color film, this was a non-Championshi[p race, but we see many of the USRRC cars (the
precursor to the Can-Am Series) involved in this race. This film has background music over the
narration, but it not overly distracting. Dave McDonald takes the win in a Cooper Monaco T-61M Ford
(Shelby powered), while Roger Penske takes 2nd. Other notable drivers include Dan Gurney, A.J.
Foyt (driving a Scarab), Parnelli Jones, and Jim Clark. Also includes footage of the production based
machines, so we see lots of Shelby Cobras. An excellent film!
1965 USRRC - Bridgehampton, NY (11 min)
Hap Sharp takes the win in his Jim Hall built Chaparral. This is a re-broadcast from ESPN2 long ago
(watermark in corner) and the film is very clear. The opening segments of the race are not included,
but Can-Am fans will enjoy the post-race interview with Hap Sharp. This film is in color.
1966 Sunoco Promotional Film (36 min)
An excellent color film from the folks at Sunoco titled "Racing The Sunoco Special".
This film covers various Sunoco sponsored road racing cars, such as their 427-powered
Chevrolet Corvette, and covers the Daytona and Sebring races, but the majority of this
film is on Mark Donahue and his 1966 Can-Am season.
