Walt Hansgen hustles his Scarab Mk4 Chev around Riverside Raceway during the 1964 LA Times Grand Prix…

Parnelli Jones won in a Cooper ‘King Cobra’ Ford, the event run on 11 October 1964. Roger Penske was 2nd in a Chaparral 2A Chev and Jim Clark 3rd in a Lotus 30 Ford. Walt didn’t finish the race with an oil leak but the speed of the car was proven with 2nd grid slot, McLaren’s McLaren Elva Mk1 Olds was on pole, Bruce also DNF with a loose water hose.

This was the last of the Scarabs, i will get around to an article on the sports-Scarabs soon.
