There are several areas of Corvair related racing poorly covered in the 
Communique.  Performance Rallies comes to mind.  With Corvairs winning 
their class on the trans Canada "Shell 4000" a four thousand mile 
performance rally in the 1960;s, and Corvairs winning outright (not just 
class wins) multiple times on the Canadian International Winter Rally, 
and a pseudo works prepared Corvair coupe or two being extremely 
competitive on the Press On Regardless International Rally, you would 
have thought there would have been more interest in this. I believe only 
one Communique article in 40 years.  Sad.

I did enjoy the links you sent. Thanks.
