Is anyone aware of a mod consisting of Can Am cars?

There are several WIP mods of this kind, some quite advanced, but no releases yet. You might be lucky and find a couple of rather recent preview shots somewhere on this forum. :)

This has the vid of the CanAm 71 mod. CanAm 71 is far along; CanAm 66 is out there as well. :hat-tip:

There's a Can-Am carset here. I have'nt used it, so can't comment on what it's like.

like bob said, there are two CanAm mods in the pipeline, '71 and '66. '71 is getting to closer by the minute as it's the main focus these days. no teasers until it is release worthy :P (or look around here for some ancient screenshots)

Runner is correct.  These are the '71 CanAm tracks which are used for the championship season.  The Mont-Tremblant track is listed as St.Jovite at the track database.

AFAIK, no one is making updates to these tracks specifically for the CanAm mod so you can download and try these tracks yourself now with other mods.  Be warned though that some of the tracks aren't as good as others.  Particularly, the AI files may be poor.

You have to thank Wikipedia, not me :) anyway, I wish you and the whole community a happy new year too!  :fireworks:

So we now know the tracks but what cars will be included? Quote from another thread:

all cars are in game, all models are driveable and have preliminary engine sounds, body skins, cockpits and physics. menus are there as well. the physics will get a new iteration soon and final skins are being prepared, some already are final.

On this slotcar page Click I counted 50 (!) cars, so are there really about 50 cars in the mod or "just" the most important ones?

not 51 different cars, and not the prototypes.
it's 8 or so carmodels and variations of the cars via skins, as usual. ferrari 712M, lola T222, lola T260, mclaren M8C/E, mclaren M8D, mclaren M8F, porsche 917-10, shadow MK2

The mod team are making good progress, with the Can-Am '71 cars.  We're now at the point, of looking for a good video maker, to make an official Preview movie.  We'd prefer someone with a track record :rolleyes:   as we expect to have a wide audience, and this needs to be special.  Send me a PM.
