1970 Sebring 12-Hour Grand Prix

Part one of the legendary 1970 12-Hours of Sebring. Some judge this race as the greatest Sebring of all time. The driver line-up alone was larger-than-life, featuring Mario Andretti, Peter Revson, Dan Gurney, Jacky Ickx, Brian Redman, Pedro Rodriguez, Jo Siffert among many others. Then you have actor and racer Steve McQueen and what will be the closest finish in Sebring history up to that time. Lots of action, spins, flips and great racing.

1970 Sebring 12-Hour Grand Prix - Part 2 - Funny Ferrari Pit Stop
In part 2 Andretti comes in for the first pit stop and driver change. Watch it carefully and you can't help but smile at their confusion and bumbling. It is typical Italian and I have seen it at Daytona as well. Brian Redman brings in his Porsche 917 with an electrical problem. Watch for the Mike Parkes Ferrari 312P coupe as it does a 360 spin on the course and then recovers. This clip ends with a view of some Corvettes and the Rodriguez 917 limping into the pits with a blown tire.





1970 Sebring 12 hours
This film captures the excitement of the 1970 12-hour endurance race at Sebring. A film shot during the golden age of racing. It features notorious race drivers like Mario Andretti, Dan Gurney, Jacky Ickx, Pedro Rodriguez, celebrity driver/actor Steve McQueen and mythical cars like the Ferrari 512S and Porsche 917. There is non-stop racing action as Ferrari driver Mario Andretti barely escapes with the lead over Steve McQueen, driving with a cast on his broken foot. Produced by Triangle Productions in association with the Automobile Racing Club of Florida.

1970 Sebring 12-Hour Grand Prix - Part 5 - The Last Episode
Nino Vaccarella brings in the #21 Ferrari 512 for Andretti to take over. Watch closely as he tries to exit the car because his crew drops the car door on his head. Luckily he was wearing a helmet. I don't think he was aware that Andretti was going to take over. With 20 minutes left in the race the leading Porsche 917 comes into the pits with wheel hub failure. This would be their third hub replacement and it ruins their chance for a win. With the 917 in the pits Andretti overtakes Revson for the lead. Then with just minutes left Andretti roars into the pits very low on fuel. When he reenters the race the McQueen/Revson car is in the lead but just by a few seconds. Andretti pushes the Ferrari to its limits and passes Revson to win by 23 seconds. Watch the celebration at the end of the video. Note how exuberant everyone is around Andretti but not as much around Giunti and Vaccarella. Because of the combination of a close race and so many iconic cars, legendary drivers plus actor Steve McQueen this race is considered by many the best Sebring race ever run. Sadly Giunti would die the following January in a horrific racing accident driving a Ferrari 312P in Buenos Aires. Steve McQueen would take his Sebring car to Le Mans in 1970 to use as a camera car to get film footage for his movie Le Mans. He wanted to drive at Le Mans in 1970 but his insurance company vetoed that idea.

1967 BOAC 500 Sports Car Race Brands Hatch.mp4
Coverage of the 1967 BOAC 500 Sports Car Race at Brands Hatch which sealed Ferrari as Sports Car Champions over the Ford GT40's that year. The intro shows a Ferrari 412P - a "customer version" of the famous 330 P3 race car, built for independent teams like NART (0844), Scuderia Filipinetti (0848), Francorchamps (0850), and Maranello Concessionaires (0854). 0854 is seen behind the Ford Transit at the beginning of this film with its unique Cambridge Blue stripe on Rosso Corsa. These cars had carburetor engines instead of the factory Lucas fuel injection of the P4 but were otherwise very similar - A P3 was also updated to p4 spec -the 0846 being since the subject of an intense investgation of authenticity since Ferrari have previously decklared it as destroyed and scrapped. Surviving 412P cars are worth approximately $8 million at auction. 0854 is currently undergoing restoration and conversion from Spyder back to Belinetta by James Glikenhaus.





Sebring 1967 12-Hour Race Ford MkIV GT Porsche Ferrari Chaparal 2D 2F LOLA T70 SHELBY M.G. VOLVO
Just discovered this in some old family film transfers. Shot by my Dad, my brothers and I that day at the race. Bruce McLaren and Mario Andretti had a 12 lap lead when the checkers waved that night. The radical design of the Chaparal was way ahead of its time. 58 cars started the race that featured 6 Ford GT's, led by the 7 Liter engine equipped factory prototype. The yellow No. 1 MkIV was the car to beat and the class of the field and that car went on to finish 4th at Le Mans later that year . 2.0 Liter Factory Porsche 910 was one of their most distinctive cars and they prided themselves by doing more with less.





1970 Sebring 12-Hour Grand Prix - Part 4 - Leading Ferrari Fails
In this clip it is night and the leading Ferrari 512S pits with gearbox problems. Mario Andretti is remarkably candid in predicting that the car will not finish the race. Peter Revson brings the McQueen/Revson Porsche 908/02 in for a final pit stop. Amazingly the car has not had to change tires or brake pads for the entire race. At the end of the clip the leading Ferrari is dead on the course and the #15 Porsche 917 takes the lead with the McQueen/Revson Porsche in second place and the #21 Giunti/Vaccarella Ferrari third. Andretti wants to fly home for a race on Sunday but the Ferrari team manager makes a decision to put Andretti in the third place car with orders to catch up to the other two. Notice the look on Giunti's face as he talks to Andretti. He is not happy about being replaced in what will become the winning car.

12 Hs of Sebring - 1970 - Highlights
McQueen I loved the 512. It was a typical Ferrari sports racer--pretty, fast, and powerful. Daytona qualifying proved quite a duel between Hans Herrmann, in a Porsche 917 on Goodyears, and myself, in the Ferrari on Firestones. It was a good battle between two big sports-car makers and the two big tire companies, meaningful stuff at that time. I put the car on pole--but only because it was raining. Revson Herrmann was quick, especially in the wet. During qualifying, he'd do some laps and set a fast pace. Then I'd go out, and I was faster. Then he'd come out again and go faster yet. It was just pouring rain, and I was really testing the banking. At Daytona, even if you slow down in the wet, you're still in the 180-mph range. I just kept moving up the banking, higher and higher. Then, finally, I went out and just held it there--flat out--maybe two feet away from the wall. In those days, there was no chicane; we just went flat down the long straightaway. By then, I was four seconds a lap quicker than he was. He never came out again, and I wound up on pole. Speedwise, in the race, we were outclassed. We had no chance of winning. Besides being slower than the Porsches, our car had suspension problems. So, the Daytona 24-Hour was not an auspicious beginning to our season, and from it, Ferrari knew that the Porsche 917 was going to be a formidable adversary that year, to say the least. On to Sebring. For the 12-Hour, the team decided to run a lighter version of the 512S, an open-roofed car or "spyder." Aerodynamics weren't as important at Sebring, as the straights aren't as long as at Daytona or Le Mans. Ferrari entered two spyders and a coupe. The spyder benefited from being lighter, and I could feel the difference. But it wasn't as easy to drive because the chassis flexed. Quite a bit. In some areas, like Turn 1, which is really fast, the car just wasn't good. It didn't handle as well as the coupe, but due to the better acceleration, it was faster--just more nervous. Andretti Testing went well. We were quick from the beginning, and we were ready. I was again teamed with Arturo Merzario and put the car on pole. The green flag dropped, and we just kinda took off. In this race, the 917s weren't a factor like they were at Daytona; our Ferraris were running 1-2-3 at the halfway point. Then, the Ferrari spyder driven by Jacky Ickx and Peter Schetty went out with failed differential bearings. The Porsches were having mechanical problems, too. But we were cruising along, maintaining a huge lead. Things were uneventful up until less than two hours before the end. Then it happened: Merzario was driving, and before we knew it, our car packed up with the same problem as the other spyder. We were out. I was getting ready to say my goodbyes. I had my plane there, and I was running a sprint-car race in Reading, Pennsylvania, the next day. So I figured I might as well head out early, maybe get some extra sleep. Ferrari team manager Mauro Forghieri said, "Wait, don't go. Don't go. I might want you to get into the other car"--the slower coupe, driven by Nino Vaccarella and Ignazio Guinti, which was now the only Ferrari team car still running. When our two spyders dropped out, the Rodriquez/Siffert/Kinnunen 917 (#15, above left) took over the lead, the Peter Revson/Steve McQueen Porsche 908 moved into second, and the remaining Ferrari moved up to third. To be honest, I wasn't all that keen about the swap for several reasons, but mostly because the seat wouldn't fit--I was a lot shorter than those guys! With the number 21 Ferrari running third, and so few laps remaining, I didn't see much of a chance of winning against the 917. All of a sudden, that car pitted with wheel-bearing problems, and we knew that was going to be a long stop. The 908, with Revson aboard, took over the lead, and the Ferrari moved up to second. There were about 90 minutes left. Poor Peter Revson. He was just spent--I think he drove like eight of the 12 hours--but was finally running first. The PA announcer screamed, "Steve McQueen is in the lead!" over and over. Well, Steve McQueen was sitting on the pit wall. They never, ever mentioned Revson. That caught my attention. And pissed me off.
