Early 1960s racing: The transitional
age continues. Mid-engined cars dominate major events while older
front-engined designs are still competitive on the local level. The explosive
appearance of Carroll Shelby's Cobras powers American road racing to a
whole new level.
Early 1960s Racing
Mid-1960s racing: Carroll Shelby's
Cobras dominate production and GT events. A new era begins with
high- horsepower American V8 engines installed in the already ascendant
mid-engined sports racers. The USRRC series and the fall pro races
in California showcase these spectacular cars.
Late 1960s racing: The epic Can-Am
days. Unlimited power and few constraints on the creativity of designers.
Where could things go after Roger Penske's 1200 HP Flat-12 Turbo-Porsche
917/30s? Porsche had a 1600 HP Flat-16 in development... That was
too much, and marked the end of the classic Can-Am.
