Lime Rock 2012 Sampler

Sir Stirling waves to the crowd

This was Lee’s first trip to Lime Rock. Besides being the publisher of Stratton Magazine, Lee is nurturing his skills as a photographer. While his effort to drive down in his ’60 MGA was stifled by a late mechanical (since fixed), I think Lee more than made up for his initial disappointment experiencing the sights and sounds of some of the finest race cars in the world doing what they do best…race. And, he took some very fine photos. Not the least of which is this shot of this year’s honored guest, Sir Stirling Moss, waving to the crowd as he goes by. Classic.

Ensign just cresting the hill

Pre-war Ferarri F1 at speed

Lee’s shot of the Ensign F1 car on the short chute before heading under the bridge just drips “speed” as does the pre-war Ferarri F1 photo. Lee and I spent about a half hour or so parked just past the crest of the hill heading into the bridge straight and were rewarded with some spectacular photos opportunities, a few of which are represented here.

I’ll also be posting up a short video that captured the F1 group screaming by. The decibel level was outrageous, particularly of the John Player Lotus. What a glorious sound!

Here are a couple more of Lee’s shots.
