Peter Revson (left) and Helmut Marko drove for Alfa Romeo at the 1972 6-Hour Continental at Daytona. Helmut Marko and Vic Elford drove the #5 Alfa Romeo 33TT3 to a third place finish while Peter Revson (on right) and his co-driver Rolf Stommelen did not finish in their 33TT3. Marko suffered a serious injury in a F1 race when a rock picked up by another car pierced his face shield and nearly blinded him. After that incident drivers were required to wear Lexan face shields rather than just plastic.
