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
