“Shadow belongs to an elite group of race car builders,” said Bill Warner, founder and Chairman of the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance. “Shadow is the sole American Can-Am Champion. And only the Shadow, McLaren and Porsche marques have won races in both the original unlimited Can-Am and a World Championship Formula 1 Grand Prix.”
“At one end of America’s Grand Prix history there’s Duesenberg at Le Mans in 1921,” said Warner. “At the other is Shadow, winner of the 1977 Austrian Grand Prix. We always remember Dan Gurney’s Spa-winning Eagle and the 1976 Austrian GP-winning Penske, and we should, but sometimes the Shadow gets overlooked.”
“Brian Redman raced for Shadow and summed it up best when he said, ‘I think they should be remembered with considerable honor.’ And that’s what we’re going to do on May 23, 2021,” said Warner.
