The 1966 Indianapolis 500 was relatively infamous. With a third of the field wiped out by a crash right at the start, Jackie Stewart lead almost to the end of the race before his engine failed. This left his team-mate, Graham Hill, to take the chequered flag by just under a lap from a third Brit, Jim Clark. However, Clark’s team believed that he was in fact a lap ahead, but that it hadn’t been counted due to the belief that his car had been involved in the first lap crash.
