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 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.
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 hours

1965 Sebring 12-Hour Grand Prix - "The 12 Hour Grind" - Part 4 of 5
This is the fourth of five parts of "The 12 Hour Grind" which deals with
the legendary 1965 Sebring 12 Hour Grand Prix. This is the race where Jim
Hall and his Chaparral went on to victory despite the notoriously rough
Sebring course and the deluge of five inches of rain that struck half way
through the race. For the first time in many years American drivers
driving an American car had won the race.
1965 12 Hours of Sebring - "The 12 Hour Grind" - Part 5 of 5
This is the last part of a five part series on the legendary 1965 12-Hours
of Sebring Grand Prix of Endurance. This is the race where Jim Hall and
his Chaparral went on to victory despite the notoriously rough Sebring
course and the deluge of five inches of rain that struck half way through
the race. For the first time in many years American drivers driving an
American car had won the race. Make sure to view the other four parts as
well as this one for some great vintage racing from The Golden Age of
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.
1965 Sebring Grand Prix
The 12 Hours of Sebring is an annual motorsport endurance race for sports
cars held at Sebring International Raceway, on the site of the former
Hendricks Army Airfield World War II air base in Sebring, Florida. The
event is the second round of the United SportsCar Championship and in the
past has been a round of the now defunct World Sportscar Championship, IMSA
GT Championship and American Le Mans Series.
It is known as preparation for the 24 Hours of Le Mans, as the track's
extremely bumpy surface, combined with south-central Florida's perennial
hot weather, is a test of a car's reliability.
After Daytona, the next match was at Sebring. Once again, Shelby fielded
his Cobras and the two GT 40's. One of the drivers hung on the tail of the
leading Ferrari and bided his time.
Another challenger, the Corvette Chaparral was a strong contender.
The other GT 40 developed suspension trouble and was out of the race. It
was now up to the remaining car. A heavy rainstorm added to the tension.
It turned into a grueling race. The rear end broke in the leading Ferrari
and the car retired. This cleared the way for the GT-40 to come in second
behind the Chaparral. Shelby and his team were ready to take on the world.

12 Hours of Sebring - /TRACKSIDE
What is it like to stand trackside at a major motorsports event? Well, now
you know with trackside. No story, no opinion, just raw energy and
excitement. This is what it's like to hear, feel, and see the best racing
cars in the world, from just over the other side of the wall.
A Ferrari State Of Mind
A compilation of Ferrari race photos taken by me at Daytona and Sebring in
the 60's and 70's during what many call the Golden Age of Racing. Featured
cars are the 512S Spyder, 312P Coupe, and 365GTB/4.
Sadness in Formula 1 Part 2

Formula 1 car or a F1 event. I want to say that no graphic footage is shown

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.
