1963 SEBRING 12 HOURS
For the first time a rear engined car wins Sebring Ferrari and John Surtees. Ferraris swept the top 6 spots with GTO's 4-5-6 ahead of 2 lightweight E types and 2 Porsche- Abarth's. Six GTO's appeared and smothered the Cobra's and Corvettes.
The new MGB's failed, the TR-4's ran all day and an Austin-Healey
was 12th overall.
The photos here are courtesy of Janet Lindenmuth. Her Dad, Ron Lindenmuth was a racing fan
just like all of us. Ron passed away a few years ago and Janet inherited all his photos.
Janet's brother was an SCCA flagger and race fan. Ron was a Pennsylvania guy and had some
Marlboro and Giant's Despair shots.
Thanks Ron. Thanks Janet
