Foreword by Mario Andretti

With comments by Mario Andretti, Dan Gurney, Brian Redman and others who were there.

On March 21, 1970, the greatest drivers and racecars in the world gathered at an old WW II airfield in the middle of Florida orange groves to participate in the 12 Hours of Sebring - Andretti, Gurney, Ickx, Redman, Rodriguez, Siffert, Parkes, Elford, Cevert. Porsche 917's, Ferrari 512's, Matra 650's, Alfa Romeo T-33's.

Little did they know that they were about to particpate in, what some have called, "one of the most exciting endurance races ever."

Against the might of the factory teams, an out-classed Porsche 908 driven by Peter Revson and Steve McQueen suddenly found itself in a position to win the race. What transpired at the end is now a part of motor racing legend.

Take a trip back in time as the story of this memorable race is told through photographs and the remembrances of people who were there.
