Blog #278-1973 Team Shadow Can Am Racing

September 11, 2017

This blog is about a legendary car at Road America in 1973, the Shadow Can Am car driven by Jackie Oliver and James Hunt.

Don Nichols, the main man of Team Shadow and UOP (Universal Oil Products) Racing in 1973 just passed away a short time ago which is why these photos came to mind.

I dug these photos up a while ago for some people who were restoring the car. It recently sold for big money!

The interesting thing to me is that James Hunt is in the car in the one photo.  I suspect he spent a fair amount of time at Siebkens that weekend back in May 1973!

Enjoy a look at a fantastic racing machine.
