Some of our sharp eyed readers may recognize these two guys. Both of them are Canadian and both went on to race in Formula 1. Of course one went much farther than the other and became a household name to this day.
CMHSG member Mike Adams came by this set from Gimli, Manitoba that was shot by photographer and racer Henri Marcoux. The photos were scanned by Henri’s family who have given permission for them to be shared.
The year is 1976 and the series is the Players Challenge Formula Atlantic. In the foreground above is the now legendary Gilles Villeneuve and driving the STP car is Torontonian Bill Brack. I believe Brack still owns this car.
I kept looking for our man Allan De La Plante & his camera in the background somewhere, but can’t find him!
If any of our readers knows the identity of any other people in the photos, let us know in the comments section so we can help Adams archive the info.
