On This Day


Saturday 26th March 1966

54 years ago

The 12 hours of Sebring was won by Ken Miles and Lloyd Ruby in a Ford GT X1. Dan Gurney's car, leading with four minutes left, stopped on course. As he tried to push the car across the finish line, the Miles/Ruby Ford passes him in the final minute. Tragically four spectators were killed when Don Wester's Porsche 906 hit them while attempting to avoid a spinning Ferrari.
