Background: Aces of the race track tussled for honours in this year's Second 200-mile U.S. Grand Prix for sports car, California's Oct 11. Among them Britain's Stirling Moss on Aston-Martin and the winner American Phil Hill on Ferrari.
And among the thousands of race fans - one Londoner with a hat adorned with badges marking some of the 200 sports car events he has watched.
After one mishap at the start of the race, contestants began to accelerate rapidly reaching an early 175 miles an hour with American Richie Ginther on Ferrari in the lead.
Another fierce contender was American Dean Mears on Mercedes - Benz but fans kept their eyes on Moss and then the lighting-like Phil Hill, 32, the victor. His prize: 20,000 dollars.
