Riverside, February 2-3 1963 -- 1

Another batch of old negatives recently surfaced.  They provide a look at some of the interesting cars that raced in California in early 1963.

Bill Sturges from Gardnerville, Nevada, won the main event in his rarely-seen Cooper Monaco-Climax.

Graham Hill had raced the car in the October, 1962 pro events at Riverside and Laguna Seca with little success.

Don Wester leads Ken Miles, both in 1700cc. Porsche RS61s.  Miles eventually finished 2nd to Sturges.  Wester was 3rd.
Bob Harris replaced Bill Krause in the Harry Finer-entered Maserati Type 61 "Birdcage" #2452.

The car appeared with new gold/black paint and Harris' familiar #17.
