|Here, in John McCann's photo,
leads as the pair brakes for Turn 7. Brabham drives the "finless"
car owned by Hap Sharp.
Cooper is a factory entry. Brabham won the race, McLaren was 2nd.
This battle presaged an equally close
contest a week later at Laguna Seca between Stirling
Moss and Dan Gurney in Lotus Mk.19s. Moss won that struggle,
with Brabham and McLaren finishing 3rd and 4th.
At Riverside, both Moss and Gurney were
slowed by mechanical problems.
