Thompson finished 11th in the original "Stingray" Prototype.  This car evolved from the "Practice mule" that supported the 1957 Corvette SS entry at Sebring.

(2-11-11)   From Willem Oosthoek:

"Keep in mind that the proper name of his car was Sting Ray, not Stingray. Also, it never had Corvette before the name, since it was a private effort by Bill Mitchell. Only by 1963, when the production Sting Ray came out, did it become Corvette Sting Ray."
