Sebring 12 Hour Race won by Hans Herrmann and Olivier Gendebien in a Porsche 718 RS60

Porsches finished 1-2 in the 'Sebring 12 Hour' World Sports Car Championship race. The Casner Camoradi Maserati entry of Dan Gurney and Stirling Moss built a huge lead before breaking the rear axle with 4 hours to go and the Ferraris and Corvettes performed poorly. Olivier Gendebien and Hans Herrman completed 196 laps in the winning 1.5 liter Porsche 718 RS60, finishing 9 laps ahead of the similar Brumos entry of Bob Holbert and Roy Schechter.
