In 1965 the Ford Motor Company was using all the resources at its disposal to beat the might of Ferrari in international endurance racing. After winning its first race ever at Daytona, the Ford GT was looking for a repeat a month later at the notoriously rough Sebring circuit. Under the supervision of Carroll Shelby, Ford brought two GT40s and four Cobra Daytona Coupes to challenge the Ferraris, Porsches and Corvette Grand Sports. But Jim Hall, one of the most innovative race car designers had other ideas. He and his partner had entered the Chaparral. The questions on everyone’s lips was ‘Could the car go the distance?’ and, more importantly, ‘What if it rains?’ Take a trip back in time as the story of this memorable race is told through photographs and the remembrances of people who were there. The text is very informative and superbly illustrated with numerous period photographs and illustrations throughout.
