Autosport's report of this race in March 1963 shows the places as
1. D Morgan
2. C Dietrich
3. C Gounis
4. B Cunningham
5 A Patterson
BUT Luigi Orsini's book on FJ shows Devos 4th and Hotchkiss 5th
Assuming I'm not muddling two races, can any one, perhaps with a US magazine, clarify the correct results (preferably full results)?
Thanks

The relevant Black Book gives the same result as Autosport, with the addition of Hansgen retiring. They don't have a full list, but do mention Hotchkiss as an entry (but not Devos)

I suspect thats just where Paul got his information, but if I can make out the text in Orsini, he seems to say Cunningham retired having been second.
The Briggs Cunningham site http://www.briggscun....html?YEAR=1963
hedges its bets by saying both DNF "fell out whilst leading" and 4th ??
