Mike Matune presents highlights from the race before THE race at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca.
Richard Griot’s McLaren 6A, top, sits at the “intersection” of the Can- Am and USRRC series. In 1967 Bruce McLaren used it to win the Can-Am championship and in 1968 Mark Donohue preformed the same feat in the USRRC. It is interesting to compare the lines of this early small-block racer with the later big-block M8s. As expected for the featured marque, BMWs made a great showing, including “CH” Deehan in David Hinton’s CSL Turbo, left.
