Andretti McQueen Sebring 1970

    Prev Next

    On the long back straight of the old 5.2 mile Sebring airport course the Ferrari 512 Spyder driven by Mario Andretti passes the Revson/McQueen Porsche 908. Later in the race the Ferrari had mechanical problems and Andretti jumped to the #21 Ferrari team car to finish 1st only 22 seconds ahead of the #48 Porsche. Andretti give most of the credit for the second place finish of the McQueen-Revson Porsche to Peter Revson. According to Andretti, Revson drove more than 8 of the 12 hours of the race.

      Wow! I just saw McQueen's Porsche at the 2008 Jim Clark Revival, which took place at the Hockenheimring in Hockenheim, Germany. Impressive cars that were. Even more impressive that you were there in 1970!

      Nice picture. I was at the race that year. Steve had a cast on one leg. Peter Revson did most of the driving. Andretti did change cars that night, but it was the #21 Ferrari that he took to victory, not 22.

      Mario wasn't happy about McQueen getting so much attention, as he said, “I remember they kept announcing, ‘Steven McQueen! Steve McQueen! Steve McQueen!’” Andretti told me in a phone interview. “They never mentioned Revson, and Revson drove the lion’s share of that race because Steve had a broken foot. Revson was doing a phenomenal job, obviously, but he never got mentioned. So that sort of motivated me somewhat.”
