Ferrari at Laguna Seca:   June 7-8-9, 1963

Although Carroll Shelby's factory Cobras dominated the GT class at the June 8-9, 1963 Laguna Seca USRRC event, three Ferraris were there to challenge them.

Frank Crane in Bev Spencer's Ferrari GTO #4219 was the fastest of the three GT Ferraris, but he didn't finish the race.

Stan Peterson finished 10th in this unique Ferrari GT, #2643.

In this photo, taken by Dave Norton with an "Instamatic", he rounds Laguna Seca's Turn 7.

Bill and Ed Cantrell brought this green GTO #3767 all the way from Florida for the race.
