In memory of Phil Hill. May America's first (and only American born) F1 World Champion rest in peace!

Philippe shared these memories of Phil Hill with our SoCal D3 racers today. Thanks Dokk!

That's the last racing gloves Phil Hill wore. The Cox Chapparel appropriately rests atop Phil's driving gloves.

Phil Hill drove a Chaparral to victory in the Can Am series. Cox produced quite a few of these Chaparrals. The wing actually works by the twisting (torque) action of the motor.
