Mosport mid 60s Photos - identify race needed
Posted 10 October 2002 - 07:17
and the rest is BELIEVED from Mosport Player's 200 1966 race.
Can anybody confirm these races, or correct them if they are wrong?
I would need also more info. about the races like entry list, grid and results but I'll start another thread about that.

Number 88 will be a Chinook, a Chaparral replica. The body was apparently scaled up from a model of the Chaparral. It was made by Rudi and George Fejer, who lived in Australia before going to Canada.
Corvette Gs,number 12 , George Winterstein, car following him looks like a McKee Chevette which was commissioned by Dick Doane who was a Chev dealer in Chicago.
I'll try and get more info. BTW GREAT pictures.

Nice pictures, I love Can-Am and American PRO SPORTSCAR Racing in the sixties and seventies.

I thought Jim Hall won Mosport GP 1965 with 2A-002, didn't he?
At Player's 1966 I have Cannon with Oldsmobile engine, are you sure with Chevrolet?
Great you identified some many cars from warm up lap. I think Bruce was on pole, so is grid like 4,2,11,97,62 correct?
Thank you. I agree with Chinook and Corvette GS, I have no idea about the other car. Can you confirm the photos are really taken at Player's 200 Mosport 1966? I had no record of Chinook or McKee Chevette in that race.
I also believe the Ford GT40 is Wietzes' car and the two Porsche behind it are Joe Buzzetta and Scooter Patrick (both raced at Player's 200 1966).

In my source beside the warm-up lap photo it states : John Cannon / Genie-Chevrolet, will try to find other source. But I found another picture with him in a "Genie-Chevrolet", before he switched to a McLaren.
From what I can make up from the warm-up photo I have, the order must be McLaren (4), Amon (2), Hayes (97), Grant (8), Motschenbacher (11), Cannon (62), .. the rest of the numbers are hard to read. Pitty it didn't count for the Can-Am title, otherwise I had the complete startgrid.
Haven't find a photo of the car behind the Corvette, looks like a Lola, but don't know.

I probably wrong, but some of these photos look like Bridgehampton to me.
I think you are not wrong. I think that ALL of them were taken at Bridgehampton

The attire of the fans in the paddock doesn't seem fit with the bridge. I think rolling up your jeans became unfashionable in the mid-fifties in the US.
