Which car race was it that McQueen drove with a broken left foot?
McQueen had broken his left foot in the Lake Elsinore Grand Prix riding a Motocross Husky, but continued the motorcycle race despite his injury and finished in the top ten. Soon afterwards, with his foot in a cast, he raced in the famous Sebring International Twelve Hour Endurance Race in Florida. His Porsche 908 Spyder was co-driven by Peter Revson. Steve McQueen's Porsche came in first in it's class and second overall, being beaten by a more powerful Ferarri driven by Mario Andretti in a close finish. Andretti later said,"This is the closest race I've run and I'm lucky to have taken it." McQueen told the press," We never expected to do anything against all those bigger machines. We were just trying for a class win, not the overall. This is fantastic...just fantastic!" (March1970)
