It was the United States Grand Prix for Sports Cars held at Riverside Raceway in 1959, with drivers such as; Phil Hill, Ken Miles, Bob Bondurant, Dan Gurney, Richie Ginther, Scooter Patrick and one lone woman driver, Josie von Neuman wheeling a Ferrari Testa Rosa. The affair was a 200 mile race, sadly Stirling when out with an engine issue after qualifying 6th on the grid.
