    Thumbs up

    Eric, not sure about Stewart and the other...
    Stewart and the team usually had all things with the L&M tobacco logo on them... Could be though

    As to when the photo was shot... It has to be '71, there was no STP 917-10 before, and unfortunately there was no Siffert after that Oct.

    As to where the photo was shot...

    Siffert and the 917 only competed in 6 out of the 10 CanAm's in '71 (and still came in 4th in the points)

    Armed with my friend Pete Lyons definitive reference CAN-AM, he supplied us with one photo with the same racer's tape pattern as we see in your photo.......... Road America, Elkhart Lake Wis. 8/29/71, he came in 2nd to Revson in the M8F.... I'm assuming that even a shoestring team as theirs was, they probably repaired the fender before the next race at Donnybrooke...

    BTW - By coincidence I was at that Elkhart race on the way back from a cross country trip ....

    Chuck,

    Thanks for filling in the back story.

    I found a version of the picture with a caption that identifies the group as

    Jo Siffert, Edi Wyss, and Hugo Schibler

    https://www.swissinfo.ch/ita/jo-siff...i-usa/47042300

    Here are a few more photos from the period in the book about Edi Wyss The Swiss Wiz

    and Hugo Shibler
    Eric,

    I met Hugo Shibler about 20 years ago up at Kevin Buckler's Racer's Group when the shop was still at Sears Point Raceway...

    I wrote about it here:

    I asked Kevin about Hugo about 10 years ago. He said he had lost contact with him...

    I truly hope Mr Shibler is still with us...

    Cheers,

    Chuck,

    What a great connection you have to the photo of Siffert, Wyss, and Schibler.

    There is a Hugo Schibler in Panama City, Panama according to Facebook. I’m not sure if it is the same person, but it is possible.

    -Eric
