interesting Sportscar dates

Hi Folks,
Im after some interesting dates about sportscar racing that i can add to the ten tenths history section that can be seen on the home page of the site.

I have a few in there but then i thought why not ask the experts , and when they couldnt be found or were to busy I had to settle for you lot (Joke people )

nah you guys sure know what your on about in here and some dates of interesting things in the world of sportscars would be great to add , so anything you can come up with would be greatly appreciated.

so either post them here or send me a PM message if you can think of any , and please make them as accurate as possible as the history file needs to be spot on.

CHEERS
Marcus

While we're discussing the history database, is it just me or does it seem like there are a lot of "XXX died on this day" ?

Err.Targa Florio 1906-this was not a sports car race.Open wheelers were still doing the Targa in 1928.
