Sebring Past - Corvette Moment of Glory
Sebring Past - Corvette Moment of Glory
March 31 2009 05:51:46 AM EST
45 years ago, Roger Penske and Jim Hall teamed up in this Grand Sport to take on the Euro elite @ the Sebring 12. Qualified 7th, up with the prototypes of the day [aka the Ferrari's].

In total, 5 Vettes took the green [3 GS's and 2 C2's including this purple Nickey car that finished 1st in its GT class].

The video below is 10 minutes long but the Corvette fun is right up front. Penske starts the car and by the Esses is up to 4th. By Webster Curves, he is 2nd.
....and @ 1:19 in the video, watch Corvette Power take over!



The 1964 Sebring 12 hour [BTW - Sort the car list by 'Race Results'] eventually went to Ferrari #22 [seen here trailing the #4].

Penske / Hall finishes 18th overall, 1st in class. So, in an an age when Corvette was unencumbered by engine restrictor rules, the THING flat ran to out-run anything.
