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.

12 Hours of Sebring (1965)
12 Hours of Sebring (1965) - The 12 Hours of Sebring is an annual
motorsport endurance race held at Sebring International Raceway, a former
Army Air Force base in Sebring, Florida. The event is perennially the
opening round of the American Le Mans Series. The track opened in 1950 on
an airfield and is a road racing course styled after those used in European
Grand Prix motor racing. The race is now considered one of the premier
endurance races in the United States and is famous for its ""once around
the clock"" action, starting during the day and finishing at night. For
many years Sebring was part of the World Sportscar Championship. The race
has a rich history, as legendary drivers such as Mario Andretti, Briggs
Cunningham, Juan Manuel Fangio, A.J. Foyt, Dan Gurney, Phil Hill, Jacky
Ickx, Geoff Brabham, Stirling Moss, John Morton, Steve Millen and Lake
Underwood, and manufacturers such as Ferrari, Porsche, BMW, MG, Jaguar,
Cunningham, Audi, Nissan and Ford have all been victorious.

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.
