Parting Shot

October 3, 1965 Watkins Glen, US



Cigar-chompin’ starter Tex Hopkins gets the 1965 United States Grand Prix underway – with Graham Hill’s BRM and Jim Clark’s Lotus on the front row and Clark’s team-mate Mike Spence, nearest, on the second row. Clark and Spence were both out within a quarter of an hour; Hill went on to win – but the title was already Clark’s.
