Product Description


'It's a great read and Charters has made an invaluable contribution by researching and writing it.'-Norris McDonald

From the Back Cover

'The Chequered Pastdeserves a victory flag! Auto sport in Canada has a fascinating past but has hitherto received little attention from sports historians. David Charters' well-written book represents an important new foray into the development of Canadian cultural and social life and treats readers to a number of milestones including the successes of Canadian drivers on the international stage, from Gilles Villeneuve to the contemporary generation of Paul Tracy, Jacques Villeneuve, Patrick Carpentier, and Alex Tagliani.'
