Is This GT/108 or GT/109 ? Info with the photo said Riverside ? ?

Mike

IMHO, I can't speak to the location, others here are more authoritative if it's Riverside,
although I was thinking it is,
The white CSX2xxx and GT350 in the background suggests to me it may be the SAI product press day??

I seem to recall GT/108 was used for Sports Car Graphic Oct 1965 issue "Track Test" by Jerry Titus.
Were these the same incident or 2 different events???

Also took this at Pacific Raceways, at least 20 years ago during the PNW Historics...

This is likely at Lemans.
It looks different (more light panels in the roof) than the race hanger LAX

I believe this is GT/108 on exhibition at Riverside; April 30, 1965 during the USRRC event.
It was also demonstrated at Laguna Seca on May 9th
...and again at LAX for the open house weekend on June 7-9th
