    The others were a bit disapointing so I didn't post them up.

    The rest is confidential

    LCMT - Circuit Mont-Tremblant - Classique d'automne 2010

    Cezah - great shots!

    I'm the owner of the white Ford Escort RS1600 (#160) that you shot in the Paddock - if I'd have known you would publish it, I'd have removed the "So you want to be a Race Car Driver" brochure from the engine bay!

    I'm also the President of VARAC which is the Club that all of the Vintage cars belong to. All of us in VARAC thank photographers like you for the great work you do of shooting our races - as you can imagine, we're otherwise too busy to photograph ourselves, unless you count in-car videos!

    If you want to see what its like from the inside of the cars, go here for my Saturday Morning race or check out videos on YouTube - search for user AWalterDavies

    Cheers - and keep up the good work

    Anyone know what car #52 Lancaster Racing is?

    I often see several modded C5 Corvettes all sporting Lancaster Racing labels parked on my street (Mackay), in front of the Privateer and Not So Privateer bars. So I figure, there's something they are doing right...

    It's a Stohr WF1 - the dominant DSR racer at present. Probably runs a Hayabusa or similar motorcycle engine to a sequential box. Chain drive - we're going back to the early days of racing!

    He has a garage close to where i live on Decarie where all his cars are. Often see the Vettes around and the DSR parked in the show room and his trailer.

    Someone i know told me he won the lottery and cars are his passion so he made a business out of it. Not sure if its true or not but hats off to the dude if thats the case. At least he built a business and isnt just sitting on his ass.
    I hate people, i swear i really do.

    Thanks! Earlier that day, I asked someone over at Lawrence Stroll's tent if I could step in to take a picture of their two incredible cars and I was pretty much told to fuck off... I decided not to bother any owners after that

    You have a very nice car, I must say one of my favorites definitely.

    Thanks for the good comments

    You sir, are my hero!

    A BDA Powered Escort MK1 - if I have a top-whatever list of favorite cars, this is definately on the short list!



    If I may ask - did you import your car, or were you able to somehow get one locally?

    Big Pat - [QUOTE]A BDA Powered Escort MK1 - if I have a top-whatever list of favorite cars, this is definately on the short list!/QUOTE]
    Almost correct Pat - its actually a Cosworth/Hart BDG - a 1975 cc engine, not the BDA that was only 1601 cc.

    VARAC's cutoff for historic is 31/12/72, so we can incorporate modifications introduced up to then. As luck would have it, Ford AVO introduced the 2 litre Block in October 72 and Brian Hart worked on it straight away.

    It produces about 260 h.p. and will run up to 10,000 revs with the F1 cam set in it (those Cosworth guys were GOOD!). I ran it last year with the F1 cams but it only came on cam at 5,500 and was useless below that and I didn't feel good revving to 10,000, so I softened the cams so now it pulls from 3,500 and I rev limit it at 8,600. I have a rev light set to 400 less than that, and if you look at the video, you'll see it flash as I come out of the Carousel in second.

    I had a 1300 cc Mk. 1 in 1971 and always wanted an RS - took me 35 years but I eventually got this one - it was a Ford UK Works car knocked down and shipped to New Zealand for the Heatway Rally in 1971 - it was rebuilt by Ford NZ who put the build plate on it, even though they never built the RS in NZ. I imported it in 2006.

    As all small Fords did from that period, it flies the inside front wheel on most corners - I had hoped somebody would have got a shot of that - I understand it's quite spectacular. The reg G4 Ginetta said when I passed him that he didn't know whether I was going around him or over him - the tyre was about a foot off the track. Me, I just hold onto the steering wheel and pray!

    Thanks for your interest..

    Boxcarracer - VARAC has a discussion forum but its limited to members only - cheap at $75 a year if you want to join, but there's no need as we post all our newsletters on our website for download. If you go to www.varac.ca and check under "Vintage Racer", you can download our regular newletters - the next one is due out any day.

    Cezah - sorry you had problems with Lawrence Stroll - we're just a bit more approachable in VARAC! In fact, normally most interested folks get to sit in my cars!

    We do a regular 'Pit Signals" emag following all events - we'll do one next week covering this past weekend and this weekend's Clebration event at Mosport.

    Would you allow us to use some of your photos in "Pit Signals" ? It's not a commercial publication and it will go to all 250 VARAC members only - I'll be pleased to send you a copy so you can see how we use your photos.

    Finally, just FYI, I also have another neat car - the earliest Lola T492 in North America. I raced it at the Fall Classic last year - you may remember seeing it:


    The sad part is that you can only really afford these stunning cars when you get to be old - really old. I pay for my racing with my Pension!

    Cheers - hope you can help us with your photos.

    Thanks for taking the time to post info about it, I really enjoyed your review.

    Thanks again to you and all passionates for racing historic car. Racing is always a risk. These car don't deserve to sleep in a garage for 30 years

    Your second video of the qualif in 1080 full screen is absolutely insane, I can almost feel on passager seat for 12min wow

    Nice battle at the end with the red roadster
