MCO Member Racing at 1971 Mosport Can Am
Here's one for the Time Machine!!
The link I put here is problematic but someone much more savvy than I managed to pull it and it is now showing on the post 4 or 5 down from this one. Worth scrolling for!!
If you were at the MCO Banquet and wondered what the 'Gordon Dewar Trophy' was all about, here is a shot of Gord at the 1971 Mosport Can Am Race. His crew chief is at the back of the car - Rick Slinn, see him today at the Canadian Tire parts counter in Kemptville!! Ronnie Ridge to his right - see him at his chip truck in North Gower! Bill Richards to Rick's left - RIP. Frank Wright in the STP T-Shirt iun between them.
That car was bought by Gord the second year after it was built and first run by Chris Amon in the Can Am Series. Previously to that, Gord had run a Mclaren M6B and before that a Camaro in Trans Am for a few years.
Gord was a motorsport enthusiast and passionate member of MCO. His Corvette, Cooper S and Lotus Europa were always exciting to watch in the Quebec ice racing championship!!!
