Dick Brashear -- 1

The Santa Barbara based driver appeared at Del Mar on December 9-10, 1961, with a piece of southern California racing history, Ferrari Testa Rossa #0710.

Brashear in the ex-John Von Neumann, ex-Richie Ginther, ex-Mike Roetnor car at Del Mar.

The veteran car wasn't particularly suited to the tight course created with haybales and rubber cones on the horse racing track's parking lot.

I'd be smiling and happy too.  In the pits at Del Mar, Brashear enjoys the sound of his Ferrari's V12 engine.   (Howard Macken photo)
