George Constantine -- Ferrari 250TR

East coast campaigner Constantine came west for his second try at the "L.A. Times Grand Prix".  For 1961 he replaced 1960's "Kelischev" Lister-Chevy with V12 Testa Rossa #0746 which has an unusual history.

He qualified 14th with a time of 2:07.7 -- a time equaled by Alan Connell in his exotic Testa Rossa-powered longtail Birdcage Maserati, and by Bob Harris in the Chevy-powered mid-engined Campbell Special, a car that presaged the big V8 powered Can-Am cars.

Constantine was slowed by mechanical problems during the race and finished 15th.
