Legendary Canadian racer Eppie Wietzes passes away at age 82

A note from Ron Fellows on the passing of legendary Canadian driver Eppie Wietzes:

“We are saddened to learn that Canadian Hall of Fame racing driver Eppie Wietzes has passed away at the age of 82. Eppie raced everything from open-wheel cars to sports cars, and raced for Team Lotus at the first ever F1 Canadian Grand Prix at then Mosport, in 1967. Eppie became a fixture in the popular L&M Formula 5000 Championship, which was where I began following his career. He then won the Trans Am Series Championship in 1981, a title I tried to duplicate in the 1990’s... As the saying goes — To have no heroes is to have no aspiration — Eppie was a hero of mine and I feel privileged and grateful to have gotten to know him. Our sincere condolences go out to his wife Barb and the entire Wietzes family. God speed, Eppie, and thank you.”
