I know this is a English web-site so not too many off it's readers got a chance to actually see Greg Moore drive in person but let me tell you he was legendary in a very few short years. I remember watching him in Indy Lights (when indy lights use to be a very strong junior formula) and he was absolutely on another level winning 14 of 15 races in his 1995. He came in Cart in 1996 (when champ cars were 950BHP monsters) and had total control straight from the gate. His players team was not on the same level of Penske or Ganassi nor was that **** Mercedes=Honda but he was always at the sharp end and always a threat. I'm absolutely positive that if he had a crack in F1 he would have been world champ.

He was Canada's second best driver all time behind Gilles and he's only that because he never got the shot that Gilles did so we'll never really know. Jacques was really special too but he just never seemed to have the true fighting passion that his dad had but Greg had it. I was at Fontana when he was killed and it's still one of the saddest days of my life. Just look at all the success Castro-Neves has had in that Penske ride that was Gregs before he was killed and Helio couldn't hold a candle to Moore. Shame really... What could have been

It's been wayyyy too long since a Canadian has won Indy (and I put that Canadian as 2nd best ever, behind his dad).

We are entering a golden age of Canadian drivers, from Tag to Hinchcliffe in Indy, to Wickens and Spengler in DTM, to Lance Stroll (already a winner as a Ferrari young driver and a future F1 Champ!).
