Mike Fisher

Michael J. Fisher was born in Hollywood, California. He was an amateur racer who participated in 2 Grand Prix, debuting on August 27, 1967. He had raced a variety of cars prior to his GP appearances including a Lotus 18 and Porsche 906 and 910 sports cars.
In 1967 he entered the Canadian Grand Prix with the ex-Jim Clark Lotus 33.
Fisher himself performed respectably well in Canada, though he was forced to take the gearbox apart himself in order to fix a leaking oil seal because all the friends who volunteered to help him were not mechanically inclined. He ended up finishing 11th. He did well in practice for the Mexican GP, qualifying 10th and he was unfortunate not to start when a diaphragm on his fuel metering unit ruptured.
His racing career was interrupted by the Vietnam war with Mike entering pilot training in 1968. He flew a number of fighters including F-102, F-101, F-4 and F-15. In 1994 he was assigned to the Pentagon and was CART's executive vice-president of racing for three months during 1997. Leaving by mutual consent.

17. Mike Fisher, Lotus 33-BRM V-8

Perhaps no entry into the 1967 Canadian Grand Prix illustrates how things have changed over the years than American independent racer, Mike Fisher. He had entered Jim Clark's championship-winning Lotus 33, now powered by a BRM engine, for his first Grand Prix. After suffering gearbox problems in the initial practice, Mike was forced to take apart the gearbox himself and make repairs.
Despite serving as his own mechanic for the weekend, Mike would start 17th and work his way up to eleventh. He would also race in the 1967 Mexican Grand Prix where he retired. This would prove to be his last race as Fisher started pilot training for Vietnam. He spent some time at the Pentagon and also served briefly as CART's vice president of racing in 1997.
