American Le Mans   Mosport  Aug  24,25,26

Mosport - Friday Aug 24th 2007
Again the Mosport venue provided us with a perfect day.
Starting out from Montreal in the morning it did not look very promising ( one wicked lightening & rain storm )
betwween Montreal and Brockville. But at Brockville we made a decision to carry on with the rest of Team Bedford in tow.
We were rewarded with great weather until the skies opened up around 4.00 pm in the afternoon ( see pictures below ) .
It had been a long time since our last visit to Moss Corner. But since the bridge is back up near Moss Corner we decided 
it was time to revisit the famed corner. It has not lost any of it's charm for phoyography it is still a great vantage point.
We were sorry to only be able to get the one day in , maybe next year ! 
                                                                 
   

AND THEN  THE RAIN CAME !!!!!!!!!!

 

Don,Mitch,Gordon with some shelter from the rain .The guy parked next to the shelter lood like

he had a problem but everything turned out ok in the end !!! 

 

 

 

Mosport F1 Reunion 2007:

We had a great time weather was just perfect ! My wife and son finally got to meet Dino and Seb, I thank them for their time

and genurosity and hope to see them again sometime in the future ! Also got to meet Rick Knoop , again thanks to him as well for showing us

that the fans are what it is all about ( such enthusiazam ) ! We also finally  got to meet and talk to  Mike Snowdon it is his car you see at the

top of our web site! Its amazing the kindness and genurosity shown to my son who is 9 years old .While we were there he must have sat 

 in at least 7-8 cars with Dad proudly taking lots of pictures to show his friends back home in Monteal !

AGAIN A BIG THANKS TO DINO AND SEB FOR THEIR KINDNESS ! 

 

 

 

The resurgence of Can-Am in early 77 at Mont Tremblant brought out some familiar & interesting cars

this one was the Schkee DB1 with Tom Klausler at the wheel (Built by Schultz and Bob Mckee hence the name). This was my very first car race that I had ever 

attended , thanks to my brother Ken. I had a great time as did Mr. Klausler , winning by almost a full lap on the

feild ( Iam sure if Brian Redman had not had his huge crash in practice things might have been different )

I have been hooked ever since......... thanks Ken
