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 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.
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.
