I'm afraid that I can't help with the track, but the No. 94 car of Eppie Wietzes brought back a few memories as it was my dad who built the airbox and airscoops for the brakes on Eppie's car. I was working for my dad in the summer of '74 at his boat repair business where he built the airbox, etc. It was adjacent to Eppie's workshop where Dennis Swan, his mechanic, spent endless hours it seemed working on the car and it's engines. I spent more time than my dad would have liked in Eppies shop talking with Dennis and marvelling at the Lola. We got pit passes for the Mosport race that year which was just thrilling for a 15 year old, and I was very proud to see my dad's airbox screaming 'round the course. Eppie had a huge poster of the car in his car dealership in North York, Ontario, and it was just beautiful looking.
