Race Gallery: Bruce McLaren Trophy – 1960‑'66 prototype sports cars

A burst of noise signalled the start of the Bruce McLaren Trophy Can-Am race, and Jay Esterer (Chinook Mk2) and Nicholas Padmore (Lola T70) streaked away into the distance on their own. Sadly, Esterer’s car slowed and he pitted, and thereafter Padmore was in no danger of being caught. During the race, John Minshaw set a new lap record in his T70 (which he later crashed), only to have the lap record broken again by Padmore with a 1:18.217.
