I spotted this on FB, on Adrian Gay's page.

 

Of interest is the pic of the Canadian type chassis in the upper left, and lower right, pics.

 

From a Tottenham race report;

This page, along with showing the famous Barry Magee's TQ and winning car, mentions how competitive the Canadian type car qualified, making it into the top 8, in a 94 car field.

I don't see a year mentioned. Can I assume by the motors it is late sixties or early seventies? One piece

pan with separate motor and axle carrier. The rest have floppy pans.

Somewhat similar to what the Toronto guys raced in the early to mid 70s. We had lightweight 13D powered cars with lots of movement, and they had nearly full pan brass chassis with Group 20 motors. Of note, their cars penetrated much further into mountain scenery when they were a rider!

I'm surprised that there weren't more anglewinders.

The full sidewinder was a U.K. phenomena.

Champions Ed Lewis went over there with his and everyone copied it. Pretty much Eds full sidewinders were uncompetitive when up against the standard cars of the likes of Emott Steube etc. why the UK was obsessed with the I have no idea.

I guess with Barry running the everyone just copied him.

Would like to know what year this side winder race was, there is a date on the mag that would eliminate the need to guess.

I did find this. Barry wins again in 1973. The cars in this race are back to angle winders by the way.
