Well, this is the list of drivers there: (courtesy of http://wsrp.ic.cz/usrrc1964.html#1)

 

It's clearly not MacDonald, Hall, Holbert, Sharp, Miles or Bondurant. It's also not Heuer, Wintersteen, Yenko, Pabst and a few others below. But I don't know what all the below looked like, so hopefully that's a start - unless someone comes along and knows in about 10 seconds. He does look relatively familiar though.

 

 

1. 97 Dave MacDonald (USA) King Cobra (Cooper Monaco T61M Ford) CM/5/63 Shelby American Inc. 52   1. +2.0     2. 66 Jim Hall (USA) Chaparral 2A Chevrolet 001 Chaparral Cars Inc. 52   2. +2.0 1. 1:47,200 3. 98 Bob Holbert (USA) King Cobra (Cooper Monaco T61M Ford)   52   3. +2.0     4. - Harry Heuer (USA) Chaparral 1 Chevrolet 002   50   4. +2.0     5. 95 George Koehne (USA) Genie - Ford   50   5. +2.0     6. 15 Ken Miles (USA) Shelby Cobra CSX2260 Shelby American Inc. 50   6. +2.0     7. 77 Charlie Hayes (USA) Elva Mk.7 Porsche Scuderia TinCan 49   1. 2.0   1:51,000 8. 26 John Fulp (USA) Ferrari 250 LM 5149   49   7. +2.0     9. 75 Hap Sharp (USA) Elva Mk.7 Porsche   49   2. 2.0     10. 12 George Wintersteen (USA) Elva Mk.7 Porsche   49   3. 2.0     11. 14 Don Yenko (USA) Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sports   49   8. +2.0     12. 78 Millard Ripley (USA) Porsche 718 RS 61   48   4. 2.0     13. 8 Dick Young (USA) Elva Mk.7   47   5. 2.0     14. 6 Augie Pabst (USA) Maserati Tipo 64 Ford 64002 Augie Pabst 46   9. +2.0     15. 93 Roger Heftler (USA) Elva Mk.7   46   6. 2.0       Did not finish:   - Charlie Kolb (USA)     42 DNF           13 Anson Johnson (USA) Ferrari 500 TRC 0686MDTR   40 DNF           4 Dick Macon (USA) Cooper Monaco 1.5   31 DNF   2.0       46 Budd Clusserath (USA) Cheetah   28 DNF           - Bob Bondurant (USA)     26 DNF           91 Bob Ward (USA) Ferrari 500 Mondial Chevrolet 0454MD   26 DNF   +2.0       38 Bud Gates (USA) Genie Mk.8   21 DNF   +2.0       76 Chuck Dietrich (USA) Elva Mk.7 Porsche   12 DNF           25 Ralph Salyer (USA) Cheetah   11 DNF           - Bill Floyd     9 DNF           29 Dick Doane (USA) Chevette (McKee Mk.I Chevrolet)   7 DNF           - Wilbur Morgan     4 DNF           Did not start:   28 Ed Cantrell (USA) Porsche Spyder

Richard: Fellow forum member Charlie Hayes, who was at this event thinks it is Bob Markley, he race a Elva/Porsche as did Charlie and was good friends with Hap Sharp.

 

Gary Knutson also believes it to be Bob Markley. He said he met him in Nassau and he was a very nice guy.  Before Bob Markley raced his Elva/Porsche he drove a Lotus 23 with very good results.
