Title: EIS - Moly slip endurance series 1981
Post by: Tachyon on March 07, 2016, 05:45:48 PM
This is probably one of the last major endurance races at Edmonton International Speedway.   The Moly Slip Endurance Series was probably Canada's last, " truly",  National Race series. It ran from coast to coast ,and featured some of Canada's best drivers of the era. The cars were a mixture of almost brand new ( just off the show room floor - plus a few modifications and few bumps and bruises from other races in the season), to older GT/Production based cars and the odd purpose built race cars.  They had good car counts and it was a lot fun and drew in a lot of spectators.

This picture shows a few of them.   The Porsche in the front was not a 944, but a highly modified new 924 driven by Heimrath.   Jones is in the Mustang, instead of his incredibly fast VW Scirocco.
Cheers
