V.I.S.I.T. – Lime Rock Park race weekend snapshots

Lime Rock ALMS 2013 parking lot cover

Each Fourth of July weekend there is an American LeMans Series race at Lime Rock Park. While somehow none of the Hoon writers who live in the relative vicinity to the track never manage to make it there, a shame really, Hoon readers often do. A long time commenter, tipster, and all around halfway decent guy, SmokeyBurnout, did make it to the race however, and he decided to share some pictures with us all.

Naturally, these are not beautiful pictures of amazing racecars in action taken with a camera that costs more than our cars. Go somewhere else for those. Here we have snapshots of stuff that is actually interesting to us, with a few proper and improper racecars thrown into the mix. Enjoy and thank Manny, a.k.a. SmokeyBurnout.

Small British cars, a guy, and an overheating racecar, a proper one at that.
