In Can-Am Challeger, Peter Bryant delivers a personal, engaging account of a fascinating career in one of the greatest eras in motorsports history. Bryant started his career as a lowly fabriactor in Colin Chapman’s original Lotus Cars workshop. He later became a freelance racing mechanic, working at circuits like Montlhery, the Nurburgring, Reims, and Spa-Francorchamps. In 1962, he was hired as full-time F1 mechanic, travleing all over the world with such great drivers as John Surtees, Jo Bonnier, and Graham Hill. In 1964, fate took him to America. It was here that Peter made his indelible mark in auto-racing – as the designer of the most successful American-built race cars during the heyday of the Canadian-American Challenge Cup. His cars broke new ground in the use of advanced materials such as titanium, as well as emerging ground-effect technologies. His irrepressible sense of humor reveals itself in a lifetime’s worth of anecdotes gathered on and off the racetrack.
