of rain strikes the track inundating everything.
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

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
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.
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 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.
Aston Martin at Le Mans 1959 Part 1
After ten years of racing, it all came good for Aston Martin in 1959 when
their DBR1s came 1st and 2nd in the famous 24 hour Le Mans race.
They then went on to win the World Sportscar Championship for the same

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.

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

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
