One Last Turn

Personal memories of the Can-Am era’s greatest mechanics, tuners and crews

The book that fans of the renegade racing series Can-Am have been waiting for.
 
Can-Am: the words are still magic to a generation of road racing fans to whom the Canadian-American Challenge Cup series represents the pinnacle of the sport they love. Taking over from the USRRC (United States Road Racing Championship) in 1966 as the feature sports car circuit in North America, this competition combined the world’s best drivers and the world’s best racing teams with the lawless spirit of the Can-Am series. Anything went, as long as it had two seats and enclosed wheels. This glorious free-for-all attitude set the stage for years of ground- and pulse-pounding cars powered by daredevil drivers with increasingly bigger engines, in front of some of motorsport’s most passionate crowds. Illustrated with numerous never-before-published photos of the cars and people who made Can-Am great, One Last Turn is the book that fans of this renegade racing series have been waiting for.
