    Lime Rock...wow...

    Bringing back memories! I haven't been there since I was a youngster. Great to see the machines are still loud and roaring.

    Fantastic! I like the pano crop! The second shot almost feels like cars are moving

    Nice stuff, Will. I always liked Lime Rock. I only got to one race there but the track is one I would have loved to run myself.

    I always wanted to lie naked on a bearskin rug in front of a fireplace. Cracker Barrel didn't take kindly to it.

    They were moving, Taz, very fast.

    My son and I raced Porsches for a while and Lime Rock was pretty much our home track as it is only 1.5 hrs away.
    It's also a driver's track as there's only one long straight. The trans Am cars really took advantage of the straight.

    The two cars posted here kept within 10 car lengths of each other for the entire race.
    They were turning 1 min and 1 min 5 sec laps for the race: pretty good for Lime Rock
