Sad news, thanks for posting this. It has been a particularly rough year for veteran Canadian racers.

Bugger!  I saw Rudi race a jillion times at Mosport in a variety of cars.  He was good at his craft.

 

RIP.

RUDY BARTLING TAKES FEATURE AT HAREWOOD OPENER

▢ The Ontario racing season opened successfully at

Harewood on Saturday, May 9, as London Automobile

Sport Club ran a full program of races for all classes,

including two novice events. The organizers claim one

of the best crowds they have had at this southern

Ontario airport course, in spite of howling wind which

blew in everything but rain.

Rudy Bartling of Toronto in the ex-Heimrath RS60

Porsche had a good day, capturing second in the first

heat and winning the 30-lap feature Harewood Trophy

race in 40 min. 29.8 sec., and setting the fastest

recorded lap of the race, although Vic Yachuk of

Kingston was unofficially timed a few seconds faster.

Yachuk in the Lotus 19 out of Ecurie Portland won

two heats, but failed to finish the final when the front

suspension broke and he had to be dug out of the

deep trackside mud.
