What’s behind the greatest photo ever taken?


#1

Look. Look at it. There’s a Shelby Daytona Coupe, being pursued by a Porsche 904 GTS, while the Goodyear Blimp looms ominously in the background. It’s March 27, 1965, the 15th running of the 12 Hours of Sebring, and in his underdog Daytona, through the blinding rain, John Fitch is chasing down Phil Hill, the only American who ever won a Formula One race. Two of the greatest drivers, two of the greatest race cars, one of the greatest endurance races, and, arguably, the greatest blimp in the world. All in a single frame.
