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-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.





1970 Sebring 12-Hour Grand Prix - Part 3 - Andretti still leads
In this clip Ferrari still leads but the surprise is the underpowered Porsche 908 of Steve McQueen and Peter Revson. Watch the interview with McQueen about his broken foot then see Revson and Masten Gregory do 360's on the course. Tony DeLorenzo and his Vette is also doing very well. The sun sets and the final hours of the race and the great drama are not far behind.

The 1965 Sebring 12 Hour Grand Prix - Part 1 of 5
The 1965 12 Hours of Sebring Grand Prix is legendary because it was won by American drivers driving an American car. Jim Hall and his Chaparral cars broke several speed records but the overall records were not broken because of the record rainfall half way through the race. That deluge, the worst in Sebring history, also makes this race a legend. Sit back and enjoy the race in five parts.





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.

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.





1967 24 Hours of Daytona - A Ferrari Sweep
A short video clip from home movies taken at the 1967 24 Hours of Daytona. Note at the beginning of the video a white Triumph TR4 which was a private entry of friends to the gentleman (Mario Levetto) who took the film of this race. The car finished 14th in the event. Also, right at the beginning are films of Lorenzo Bandini and Ludovico Scarfiotti who came in first and second in the race. Pedro Rodriguez came in third. All were driving Ferrari's. I have posted a still photo of the three Ferrari cars crossing the finish line at the same time on my Flickr page. Just Google "Ferrari Sweep - Daytona 1967" to see the photo.
