Some of the legendary drivers of the Maserati team at Sebring 1957.
On the left is Stirling Moss, leaning against the car and with the white cap is Juan Manuel Fangio. Fangio has his arm around his co-driver, the great French driving ace Jean Behra.
On the bottom right is Carroll Shelby.
Fangio and Behra came in first in their 4.5 Maserati. Moss came second in his 3-liter Maserati and poor Shelby got disqualified because of a major mistake on the part of the Maserati pit crew.
It is ironic that Fangio felt compelled to wear a Sebring metal badge that identified him as a "driver."

At the risk my overlooking something obvious, what is the car (circled) in the background? 

The angle might be deceiving me, but it doesn't appear to have the same fender openings as a C1 Corvette, although the shape of the tail light fender bulge is similar.

The front fender trim looks more like an Olds 88 style emblem than anything else. Not a C1 emblem, for sure. 
I'm pretty sure the car is not an Oldsmobile. :P

It's not a '55-57 T-Bird.

Maybe it's a customized C1, or a mail-order body ("Make your XXXX look just like a Corvette for only $149.95!")

Other thoughts?
