To help revive this thread here's a delightful image of Helen and Jackie and Alan, perhaps at Brands in the early 70s'. The image belongs to John Sismey.

I believe all but the first of John-w's photos date from 1980, not 1979. The Lotus 81 on the breakdown wagon is definitely from 1980, and the McLaren M29 used a slightly different colour scheme in 1979.

Sorry, I forgot to add the text Hockenheim 1980

The driver (Koveleski) in that last shot appears to have an aerofoil on his helmet ! He wasn't serious, was he?

Maybe he thought his neck needed to be shorter? Although you don't need a long neck to be a goose...

Oscar was never one to take himself too seriously. The wing on his helmet was a dig at the Mighty McLarens.

It depends how you mean it.

-- Did he really wear it in Can-Ams?: Yes

-- Was he serious about winged helmet development?: Oh Yes, earlier aero packages included high-wing prototypes, then dangerous strut failures forced shortening for everyone's safety

-- Did he think it gave him an aero benefit?: Open to interpretation

Oscar's great. I was 14 the final year he ran. He raced Can-Am, founded Auto World with catalogs stuffed full of RC and model cars and a whole-childhoodfull of Christmas presents, built bitchin' wagons with wings for the infamous Road America wagon races of (I think) 1973 and '74, and played with a gas-powered RC car of HIS Can-Am car in the paddock like he was 8.

He also co-founded the Polish Racing Driver's Club with Tony Adamowicz, a light-hearted but I believe effective campaign in the days of Archie Bunker.

And he was really nice to autograph-seeking punks like me, and wore a really cool hat. :-)

That shot of the Mini and Anglia rounding Old Hall makes you realise how critical and exiting that corner was, nearly as hard as Lodge, and it makes some of us, I am sure, yearn for the old Oulton....... no prisoners taken there in those days., excluding the Blaster Bates stories of course.
