Jo Bonnier at the wheel of the Chaparral 2D during its debut race at Daytona, 1966. It lead the powerful 7 liter Ford GT-40s for a while early on, but various mechanical issues pushed it back in the field due to unscheduled pit stops. The next morning it was working its way towards the front when an upright failed ending its race. Dave Friedman photo.
