At the 2014 Canadian Motorsports Expo, Canadian racing legend Bill Brack rolled out his race worn 59/69 Lotus Formula Atlantic for fans to see. The car had been refreshed with a fresh coat of STP red to replace the decades old finish which had faded to orange. The repaint was in preparation for Brack to return to Mosport (Now Canadian Tire Motorsport Park) for a hillclimb event later in the year.
Much like I thought the car had always been orange, I did not realize that Brack’s car is rather special in that is has won more races than any other Lotus ever to do battle. That is pretty impressive indeed.
The folks at KarmaComa Studio are working on a film about the Canadian racing icon, which will be released later this year. Fortunately for us, they have released a quick trailer.
