Photo of the Day: Surtees & Bondurant at Daytona (1965)
Bob Bondurant and John Surtees line up at the commencement of the 1965 Daytona 2000km.
Bob sits behind the wheel of the #72 Ford GT, with Surtees locking eyes from the open cabin of his Ferrari 330 P2. Surtees was at the time the reigning Formula 1 World Champion, a title which would have made him quite an intimidating figure on the grid – however luck would see his car retire with axle trouble. Bondurant would go on the place third with team mate Richie Ginther, with the other Ford backed GT #73 of Ken Miles and Lloyd Ruby winning the race. Jo Schlesser slotted into second place, landing his ride in Formula 1 in the following year.
