1967 Canadian Grand Prix 50th anniversary

 

On September 30th 1967 took place the only Canadian Motorcycle Grand Prix

It was a rainy day and Agostini only needed 2nd place to win his second of  eight 500 Grand Prix Championships, Mike Hailwood won the race running away (won by 38 seconds) and actually tied Agostini with 46 points and 5 wins each, but Agostini took (3) 2nd place finishes compared to Hailwood’s 2.  So the championship went to Ago.  Canadian Mike Duff took 3rd place and was the only rider to finish on the same lap as the 2 superstars.   The 500 race was 40 laps and took 73 minutes and 28 seconds to complete in the rain (I know right!!! Crazy stuff) . Best time on wet pavement was a 1.42.700

In the 250 Race, Hailwood won the race 1 full minute ahead of Phil Read and with a best time of 1.36.800 .Notable 4th place was Yvon Duhamel on a Yamaha, the 125 Race was won by Bill Ivy.
