The start of the 1969 Sebring 12 hour.   As I describe in the story, I somehow managed to make a better start in my PV than many of the big name stars.  The #53 Porsche, which hasn't yet moved, was driven by no lesser talents than Peter Gregg and Wilbur Pickett.

The #22 coming up the middle was driven by Janet Guthrie, Donna Mae Mims and Liane Engman.

A this point I was probably wide open in third gear, accelerating as hard as I could.  The next half hour was probably the most exciting one I'll ever have in my life.


This photo was taken by Nancy Theall from our pit which was approx. halfway down pit lane.  In other words, a good ways from my starting slot at the far end of the line.
