35th Can Am Reunion

featuring

Chaparral Cars

and Jim Hall

Road America - Elkhart Lake, WI

July 20-23, 2001

 

Here are some shots from the Brian Redman International Challenge (BRIC).  Attending this year's event was a real thrill for me, as I got to see up close and personal the Chaparral's that captivated my interest in racing as a boy.  Especially when Jim Hall their creator took a couple out for exhibition laps.  This year's BRIC also celebrated the 35th anniversary of the Can Am being run at Road America, with the Chaparral's taking center stage.

The legend behind the cars - Jim Hall, designer, builder, racer!  He graciously signed my book on Chaparral, along cordially offering his signature on Chaparral memorabilia to countless others.  Joining him was the great ex-Jaguar driver - Brian Redman.
