At LeMans in 1967 some, if not all, of the prototype cars appear to have yellow and/or red makings at various places on their bodywork. These markings are round "dots" about 3 or 4 inches in diameter and the winning Ford MkIV, for instance, appears to have had two yellow dots on the top immediately behind the upper corners of the windshield, and a red dot (hard to see on a red car) on the rear bodywork between the rear window and the left rear tire. They are also visible in photos of the Ferrari P4's and Chaparral 2Fs. I'm assuming that they were there to satisfy some regulation of the ACO, but what were they for and why just 1967?
