Roger Penske 1961 United States Grand Prix Tail-end Charlies on the grid. Gendebien (#21) in patched up Lotus, qualified slow, ran poorly in race itself. Practice flip on Friday contributed, no doubt. Penske (#6) in RED Cooper, ran well in race, had brake problems.

Roger Penske 1961 United States Grand Prix Penske about to be lapped by Jo Bonnier (#11). Porsches contrasted with British cars by exhaust note, which loafed by comparison. Bonnier pitted early in race for plug trouble, started in 10th grid spot, finished 6th.

Roger Penske 1961 United States Grand Prix Looks quiet enough, but Penske here is rolling down central access road at Glen without brakes. He lost them during practice, left course, took shortcut to pits. Nearly drove P.A. announcer hoarse.
