Narrow Victory

The premise of GT racing was that manufacturers could race cars based – however loosely – on cars which customers could drive on the road.  The Ferrari GTO and the Aston Martin Project Cars were perhaps the ultimate expressions of this – based on the 250GT series and DB4GT respectively.  For the TT at Goodwood in 1963, the Astons of Bruce McLaren and Innes Ireland were handicapped by having to run on narrow 5 ½ “ wheel rims.  Although Ireland put in a banzai qualifying lap to take pole, Graham Hill won the race from Mike Parkes’ similar car while Ireland finished 7th after a number of lurid spins.  Here, Hill leads Ireland and Parkes out of the chicane in the early stages of the race.
