Unfortunately, what the team officials issued the order that when two or more cars cross the finish line together, the automatic winner is the car that has traveled the furthest distance. Since McLaren's GT40 MKII had started the race 8 meters behind Miles' car, a shared first place winner was not granted due to technicality they declared McLaren the sole winner of the Le Mans 1966 race. Miles, who had already won at Sebring and Daytona, missed his chance to sweep " the Big 3 endurance races" that year.
