Sebring has always been known for some fantastic races and the 1969 Sebring 12 Hour race was no exception! The Ickx and Oliver driven GT40 was considered a dark horse and barely qualified in the top ten among the field. The race went as planned for Ferrari and Porsche but as the race wore on the two rivals developed issues and the GT40 seized the opportunity to advance. After 9hrs the team had advanced to 4th place behind the Ferrari and Porsche rivals. In the final hours the rivals were forced to pit with mechanical issues and the GT40 took the lead in the final hour as the crew watched nervously as they did not expect the car to finish! Within the final minutes of the race they had to come in for a tire change and the Ferrari closed to within 30 seconds, but then overheated. Ickx and Oliver held on for the upset win. ACME is pleased to announce this beautiful Gulf livery GT40 MK1 in 1:12 scale. Place your orders today to ensure your copy.
