NOW! Watch the fastest and
most exciting big sports cars in
action on the MIS Irish Hills
3%-mile road circuit, Sunday,
September 28, 1969. Former
world's champion driver Stirling
Moss predicts: "The most spec-
tacular action in the history of
racing. The unprecedented size
of this year's awards should
provide both American and
Canadian racing enthusiasts
with the best possible blend of
top North American and Euro-
pean drivers." With over
$1,000,000 in total prize money,
the 1969 Can-Am races become
the richest and most important
racing series in the world today.
$740,000 GUARANTEEI)
The Canadian-American Chal-

lenge Cup series was inaugu-
rated in 1966 by the Sports Car
Club of America. The Can-Am
has grown quickly to rank at
the top of international road
racing competition with more
than $740,0000 in guaranteed
1969 awards. The cars are pow-
erful Group - 7 sports-racers
which are simply racing cars
with enclosed wheels and un-
limited size engines capable of
200 mph from 600 horsepower.
The Can-Am is a drivers' cham-
pionship with points accumu-
lated in the eleven race series.
The 1969 purses are all set at
record amounts of $40,000 to
$60,000. Three races are in
Canada under the Canadian
Automobile Sports Clubs and
the balance is staged by the
SCCA in the U.S.

For a finale, there is a $200,000
pot of gold - the extra point
fund established by the SCCA
and sponsored by the Johnson
Wax Company for the drivers
with the most points.
With racing greats from Eu-
rope, New Zealand, Australia
and North America, supporting
companies from everywhere and
eleven of the best road courses,
auto racing has its premier 1969
attraction in the Can-Am.

The M i c h i g a n International
Canadian-American (iup 200-mile
road race, Sunday, September

American drivers will join the

the newest phenomenon in this
colorful spectator attraction -

"It's like being an integral part of the racer".
That's the thought most often heard from students at the International
Institute of Performance Driving, after their first session in one of
the school's ten Merlyn Formula Fords.
Based at MIS, the Institute uses professional instructors and techniques,
combined with the latest race-equipped cars to provide the ultimate
in race driving preparation for amateur and hobby racing enthusiasts.
The course at IIPD includes an exhausting and revealing evaluation
of the untrained novice, in his very first visit to the school. Then fol-
lows a series of classroom and racetrack sessions designed to fully
prepare him for novice road racing. The training includes many laps
on the five different courses available for road racing at MIS, as well
as films, demonstrations, lectures, the inevitable homework and track-
side sessions to critique other students as they practice.
IIPD furnishes every item . . . except the student and his sneakers. For
