Same event as above, and in the program at Covers -1-. The text in this one shows the writer was convinced this was the last-ever race at Torrey Pines. Strangely enough, there was one more Torrey Pines Road Race, as seen at Covers -2-.

Photo from a 1952 magazine report on a Torrey Pines race. It shows the Grant Piston Ring
Special 4.5-liter Ferrari Tipo 375, one of four that had been entered in the Indy 500 that year. It was originally a European Formula racer. Several drivers, foreign and domestic, made attempts at qualifying the cars. Johnnie Parsons, 1950 Indy winner was at one time scheduled to drive it or another similar in a Grand Prix event, but was not allowed to compete because of a "technicality" having to do with the car.
