1965 12 Hours of Sebring.  Chaparral 2c

A Chaparral would win the 1965 Sebring 12 hours. Considering the competition, this victory made the world stop and consider Hall and his cars.

Jim Hall and Dan Gurney's Lola T70 Mk.3 roll forward as the grid forms up for the 1967 Riverside Can-Am. At the start Gurney would get by everyone to take the lead. Three laps later, his engine blew up. Hall would battle back and forth with Bruce McLaren, with the latter winning by 2 seconds, having deliberately over-revved his engine to remain ahead of the speedy Chaparral. Al Bochroch photo.
