It is with a great deal of sadness that I relay that racecar designer Peter Bryant died last night of a heart attack at his home in Las Vegas.
Peter started out as a mechanic in Formula One, but eventually went on to design his own Can-Am car, the impressive Ti22 "Titanium" car that Jackie Oliver drove to great effect in 1970, finishing a stunning 2nd at Laguna Seca that year.
I had the good fortune of spending some time with Peter, just this past weekend, at the Riverside Reunion, and as always he was in great spirits—relishing telling tall tales of his days as a constructor. He will be sorely missed.
Look for a more thorough overview of his life in the upcoming Jun issue of Vintage Racecar, and on our web site www.vintageracecar.com
