Paramount Ranch -- 8

On March 10th, 1957, the race for small modified cars (under 1500 cc.) was hard fought.

Early in the race Ken Miles in John von Neumann's Porsche 550RS leads Bob Drake in Joe Lubin's "Bobtail" Cooper-Climax 1500.  I can't identify the other two cars.  Does anyone remember?

Hard racing on the skinny hard-compound tires of the era.

Sliding and drifting, Drake and Miles battled for the lead in equally matched cars.

Drake won this round of the career-long duel between these two great drivers.
