The 12 Hours of Sebring – part 7

During the 7th hour of the race, Dempsey Racing’s day came to an abrupt end. During one of the many restarts during the race, driver Henri Richard tangled with traffic which resulted in a huge accident approaching turn ten. Richard did not suffer any serious injury.

Being in the paddock at the time, I wandered back to the Dempsey garage just as the crew and team principals arrived…awaiting the arrival of their car on a flatbed. A bitter end to a promising day. Here are a few photographs of the team during the weekend. Enjoy!

The last ride of the day. Let the work begin to prepare for the next event, the Long Beach Grand Prix.
