1) Nick Mason,  2) Gordon Murray, 3) McLaren F1 BMW, 4)

Harrad's, 5) Unknown, 6) Single driver unknown - about 1930, ran a good part of the race, 7) Michael Delaney 1970 - at least that what the movie showed 😎 Mario and Michael Andretti, Derek and Justin Bell, Dan and Alex Gurney. 9) twice, 10) 24 hrs, 7 mins and 41 seconds,   I guessed a couple of these and the Delaney thing was a joke. I'd just like to have the shirt.  Thanks to Hagerty for sponsoring.
