At the 1960 Havana Cuba GP, Dan Gurney drove a Maserati 200s #15; but many results also show him sharing a Ferrari 250 TR #40 with Rodger Ward that finished 13th. I have found photos in the Burnside book of the Gurney Maserati but there is no mention of him driving the yellow Ferrari. Does anyone have race reports from the time that clarifies this? The reports I have found do not go into detail. Thanks.

According to Camoradi's Fred Gamble, Gurney took over Ward's Testa Rossa when his own 200SI expired. Both cars were Camoradi entries. The Testa Rossa finished 14th [according to the official results], five laps down.

I think one sources say 13th position and other - 14th position because of Jo Bonnier: his Porsche RSK stopped on 48th lap and so he was DNF. Ward/Gurney Ferrari 250 TR #40 finshed 5 laps down with 45 laps...

The Maserati 200SI was #2427, loaned by JJ Packo to his friend Kucky Casner (information provided by Willem Oosthoek).
