No; Historic racing, in the shape of the Can-Am Reunion, had returned to Road America, Elkhart Lake. Sponsored by Merril Lynch and organized by Brian Redman, the greatest gathering of the legendary Can-Am monsters saw no less than 57 of the no-limits sports racers take part in a ten-lap race around the beautiful four-mile circuit set in picturesque Wisconsin countryside. McLarens, Lolas, Shadows, Marches and McKees. some boasting up to 850hp and terminal speeds of over 200mph, took part. Driven by Richard Dodkins, it was the fastest small block engine car at the Can-Am reunion at Elkhart Lake.”
