Star­dust Race­way, Ne­vada, Novem­ber 13, 1966 – Can-Am Round 6

Australian Muscle Car - - '66 Clickety-Click -

Trans- Am (pre­vi­ous spread) was not the only se­ries off to a spec­tac­u­lar start in 1966. The in­au­gu­ral Cana­dian Amer­i­can Chal­lenge Cup fea­tured many of the sport’s big­gest names, in­clud­ing 1964 F1 World Cham­pion John Sur­tees (Lola T70 #7), who wrapped up that first ti­tle at the mag­nif­i­cently named Star­dust Race­way. Here, the high-winged Cha­parrals of Jim Hall (#66) and Phil Hill give chase on lap one, as do the likes of Ki­wis Chris Amon (#5) and Bruce McLaren in McLarens, Denny Hulme, Jackie Ste­wart (#43), Par­nelli Jones, Ge­orge Follmer, Mark Dono­hue, Mario An­dretti and more. Tas­ma­nian Paul Hawkins (Lola) is buried deep in the field. Can-Am, like its sedan car coun­ter­part, would burn brightly for al­most a decade.
