It has almost become a tradition that the Canadian-American Challenge Cup opens its season at Bosch Hockenheim Historic. Next year (24 to 26 April 2020) the cars will again roar through the Motodrom. CanAm started as a race series with two races in Canada and four races in the United States.
The rules, which followed the FIA’s Group 7 for two-seater racing cars, were just three pages thick. The FIA’s Group 7 meant: no cylinder capacity limit, but rather with turbocharger or compressor. Other technical restrictions did not exist. In theory, cars just needed two seats, a chassis that surrounded the wheels and a roll bar. From 1966 to 1974, the most spectacular racing series in the world at the time relegated Formula 1 to a game of slowcoaches, because at the CANADIAN-AMERICAN Challenge Cup everything was possible and above all anything went: there were no limits.
