DESCRIPTION:

Aerodynamic innovation was also a major part of the typical Can-Am car, whether in the form of the wild looking Chaparral with its flipper rear wing or the air brakes tried on the Ferrari 612P, and these ideas (and many others) came under the microscope of the magazines of the day. This edition will be great reading for all enthusiasts of this exciting and legendary period of motorsport.. This Can-Am book takes a more detailed look at the wide variety of cars that contested the championship. In these pages you'll find track tests by well known drivers, comments from ground breaking designers like Bruce McLaren and inside information about the technicalities of the Can-Am have all been collated together to give a comprehensive contemporary overview of what went into producing those awesome Group 7 cars. Ferrari, Ford and Chaparral will be familiar to most enthusiasts, but how many recall that Brm built a Can-Am contender? Likewise, there was the ill fated Holman-Moody Honker Ii that thwarted even the undoubted ability of the great Mario Andretti to make it competitive and valiant attempts by McKee, Caldwell and the rest to build race winning cars. In chronological order and rising in levels of performance, the machines examined range from the early Lola T70 to the incredible 1100 horsepower, 240mph Porsche 917 that swept all before it in the penultimate year of the Can-Am. McLaren cars dominated the series throughout its nine seasons and are also featured here
