Release Date: 2016-10-31
Genre: Sports & Recreation

Forget the rule book and relive one of the most exciting race series ever with Can-Am 50th Anniversary! The first rule of Can-Am: There are no rules. Or at least damn few rules. The bodywork had to enclose the wheels and there had to be something that loosely resembled a passenger seat--if your passenger was a misshapen human or a lab monkey. Otherwise, set your racing mind free. No limits to engine options or output, no restrictions on aerodynamic aids or body shape. It was as close to unrestricted as racing had ever gotten or would ever get again. And it was fantastic. From its introduction in 1966 to its end in 1974, North America's Can-Am series was the most technologically advanced and star-studded racing series of the day. Its essentially rules-free formula attracted everyone from crazed backyard engineers to specialists such as McLaren, Chaparral, and Lola to manufacturers like Ford, Ferrari, and Porsche. Top drivers including Mario Andretti, Bruce McLaren, Jackie Ickx, Dan Gurney, Phil Hill, Mark Donohue, Peter Revson, and John Surtees competed on tracks across the US and Canada, taking time off from Formula One schedules to drive in Can-Am. Can-Am 50th Anniversary offers a heavily illustrated look back at what is arguably the greatest race series ever. Photographer Pete Biro followed the series throughout its glory era from 1966-74, his images appearing in Road & Track, Car and Driver and Sports Illustrated. Many of the book's images are unpublished or long out of circulation. Biro brings his unique perspective and his close relationship with the drivers, team owners, and constructors to bear on the captions while former Autoweek motorsports editor George Levy provides text reflecting the thrill of Can-Am racing. Relive one of the most exciting race series ever with Can-Am 50th Anniversary.
