1971 Can-Am - McLaren M8C- John Cordts - Le Circuit, St. Jovite, Quebec

John Cordts (born July 23, 1935 in Hamburg, Germany) was a racing driver from North Bay, Ontario. Cordts had been successful in Canadian and U.S. sports car racing, particularly with various McLarens run by Dave Billes's Performance Engineering. He competed in many events, ranging from Harewood Acres (where he still holds the track record when it closed in 1970), Mosport, Mont-Tremblant (Le Circuit), and Westwood in Canada to various tracks in the United States and even Japan. He later became a regular participant in the CanAm series, in which he raced until 1974, mainly in Chevrolet-powered McLarens and Lolas run by other teams. His best Can-Am finish was a 2nd at Road America in 1974. He was also known for his participation in the SCCA Trans-Am Series, where he had, at one point, piloted a BF Goodrich-sponsored Pontiac Firebird, known as the "Tirebird" and also several FIA events with the Greenwood Corvette team. John was also inducted into the Canadian Motorsport Hall of Fame in 2003.
