Can-Am at 50

This year’s Silverstone Classic is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the spectacular Can-Am series by hosting two eagerly-anticipated anniversary races, the first on Saturday, second on Sunday.
 
With a no-holds-barred rules structure that allowed turbocharged and supercharged engines of unlimited capacity, plus almost anything in terms of aerodynamics, the original Can-Am (short for Canadian American Challenge Cup) series produced some of the most outrageous racing cars of all time. Monsters confirmed for the Classic include a number of mighty 8.8-litre McLaren V8s as well as Lolas, Marches and the extraordinary low-drag Shadow Mk1 Chevrolet – one of the most outrageously innovative of all Can-Am cars.
