What is the first form of motorsports to utilize the coilover shock? Was it Formula 1, off-road racing, rally car? Furthermore, who was the first practitioner of the coilover shock in the desert and on what car? I was just a little curious and thought it to be a good trivia question. Thanks!

I have pictures of early('68,69,70) race cars with coilovers, but I know they were used lomg before actual desert racing even started. It would be a guess, but probably some open wheel cars in europe is where they began.
