BMC brought 4 twin cam roadsters with hard tops.  3 raced and one was labeled P.  The #38 was the British driven car of Colin Escort and Ted Lund.
 This is the Canadian car driven by fred Hayes and Ed Leavans.  This car was 24th overall.  Most important it was later owned and raced by BARC founder Dave Nicholas who won FP in the 1968 Watkins Glen 100.  The car now lives in Germany with Stephen Propsting.
 This car with the white stripe was the American driven entry of Dan Flaherty and Jim Parkinson.  This car was owned by barc member John Wright and it is exactly as it was at Sebring - unrestored and wonderful.
 To not wear out the mechanics of the twin cams, MG brought a sister P car.  The lore has it that the car was being taken to Cuba, the boat sank and it now sits at the bottom of the Caribbean.
 Stiling Moss has a talk with a British journalist I cannot recall.  The young guy with the beard is an early Ryan Gosling look-a-like.
 Eells Kelley’s haunting portrait of American racing legend Masten Gregory, the Kansas Flash.  Gregory was a hero of Jim Clark, Carroll Shelby and Joe Tierno.  Tierno liked him because he was one of the only really quick drivers to wear glasses.
 Augie Pabst finished 4th overall in the Ed Hugus 250GT Berlinetta #10.  Pabst was not only an exceptional driver but a prankster of the first order.  Noted for parking his rental car in a motel swimming pool and simply walking away.

 John Fitch (white coveralls) and Briggs Cunningham are surrounded an hour before the race. Fitch and Cunningham would drive a Corvette oddly entered by Jaguar cars of New York.  Fitch rolled the Corvette when a hub broke.
 Belgian ace Olivier Gendebien listens to Ollie Schmidt.  We nicknamed Gendebien Jellybeans to mimic the pronunciation in French.  Jellybeans won in the Porsche and twice other with Phil Hill in Ferrari’s and go on to win Le Mans 4 times.
 Great Italian Georgio Scarlatti drove the Scuderia Serenissima Ferrari California to 8th overall with Carlo Abate.
 A young Dan Gurney.  Already part-timer at Ferrari he co-drove with Moss and led much of the day.  Dan Gurney was a giant of motor racing and we were privileged to see him many times.
 I think its Jim Jeffords but the Corvette experts say no.  We can’t see the number so this driver needs to be identified by a reader.
 Fast Fred Windridige next to the Corvette he shared with Dick Thompson.  This was a sister car of Fitch and Cunningham and fared no better blowing its motor at lap 41.
 Ricardo Rodriguez speaks Italian to one of the Ferrari mechanics who is taking care of his OSCA Formula Junior.
