Video of the Week: 7 Minutes in Can-Am Heaven


Video of the Week: 7 Minutes in Can-Am Heaven

After writing about the Lola T70 and thinking about the sheer awesomeness of the old Can-Am series, we remembered that there are probably lots of people who’ve never seen those wild old cars in action. Well, here’s your chance.

This is a seven-minute video (and the first of a multipart series) looking at the first race of the 1967 Can-Am season at Road America, located in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin. If we could build a time machine and go anywhere on Earth for a day, we’d take it here, on this day.

Listen to big-blocks screaming in 1,700-pound road-racing cars and pay close attention to the crowd of immortals racing these cars. It’s the freaking racing hall of fame, and it’s the starting grid for this race.

Simply bad-asser.
