Mike. is that a photograph of a photograph?

I am pretty sure that I have seen the original before, it, the Chevron Bridge, is actually the start of the 1966 race with Dan Gurney leading off in the 30 car, a Lola. Gurney won the race. John Surtees who was also in a Lola (7) won the series. The third car is I think a McLaren driven by Bruce McLaren. Some real legends of motor racing in just those first three and then you add other racers that day including folk like Graham Hill, Phil Hill, Chris Amon and Peter Revson...wow.

Regards,
David
