Rod Carveth -- Lotus Mk.19-Buick / Skip Hudson -- Maserati Type 151

A classic photo showing two very interesting cars on the main straight near Start/Finish at the Cotati airfield course in Northern California on XX-XX, 1963.  #54 is Rod Carveth in his  Lotus Mk.19 powered by a 3500cc. Buick (BOP) V8.  #33 is Skip Hudson in the Team Meridian-entered Maserati Type 151 coupe

Hudson ran without doors so he could escape the evil-handling car in the event of another rollover.  Stan Peterson had previously rolled the car in Turn 1 at Vaca Valley Raceway in November, 1962.
