Jim Hall -- Chaparral 2A -- Candlestick Park  Aug. 7-8, 1965

Hall won this race easily.  Not surprising since he and the world-class Chaparral were facing Northern California regional opposition.  The Candlestick Park organizers spent the money and did whatever else they needed to do to bring a crowd-drawing "Big league" entrant to these race events.  In 1964 they brought Phil Hill in a Series 2 Ferrari GTO (Was it a 4-liter?  TM) and for 1965 they convinced Hall to appear.

This race was marred by the death of popular and talented NorCal driver Bart Martin.  (Your webmaster would like to create a tribute page to Martin.  Can anyone contribute photos and info?)
