Highlights of in car video during the 2009 Lime rock vintage festival. This event is held every Labor day weekend and is a must visit event for any sports car enthusiast. Lime rock park is a special place. I think of this race track as being the birthplace of road racing in America, along with Watkins Glenn and Bridgehampton.
Sorry about the chickens at the end. Somehow it does not seem right that a racing video should end with chickens, but oh well, that is the way it turned out.
Triumph GT6 MK3 vintage race car part 1

copper nickel brake line kits that I mentioned in the video. I will be
adding part 2 of this video next week.
My friend and I built this vintage race car over the course of several
years. It may have been raced in Canada when it was new, but I have very
little information about it's history.
The engine was built to be reliable so that we could sort out the car on
track. It could certainly make more power by increasing the compression
ratio and doing a few other things. It has been very reliable so far. I
drive a street GT6 and I can tell you that there is no comparison between
the stock engine and this one. This engine revs very freely and is still
making power up to the rev limiter (7000 RPM). This is due to all of the
work done on the head, the Exhaust
header and the weber carb setup.
Lime Rock Vintage race 9/3/2011 MG focus, Carl from Zapata
This is Carl from the Zapata team winning the MG race at Lime Rock. This
was a great battle that goes back and forth. At 5:40 his car starts
smoking, and he thinks he might have to stop. At 6:59 he gets passed by
our new friend Storm, but he gets him back the next lap. This is the
first race Carl has ever won. We were very excited for him. This was a
great event, with many historic MG's and like always, some very special
Limerock Vintage Race Festival & Whopping Sunday Car Show 2010
This annual event is fantastic, and not dominated by old Corvettes although
my prior coverage tends to favor my home team of 1953-1982 Corvettes, I
still do appreciate many other marques and models from a to z. At this
event there are more Ferrari's than Corvettes or any other make but kit
Cobras. Included are Bugatti, Norton, Kurtis, Ford, Alfa, Porsche, McLaren,
Allard, Indy, Jaguar, MG, Cooper, Devin, Aston, Mercury, Nash, Rolls,
Birdcage Maserati, Caddy, BMW, from V12's to 2 cylinder Morgans, Chararral,
Stutz, L88, Woodys, Zora & Yura's Ardun heads. It's just mind boggling the
variety, but the number of different Ferrari's is outstanding. I don't
recall seeing John Fitch in his Phoenix as is usual. Note: this soundtrack

Alfa Romeo 1900 sprint Touring restoration
This is a tribute to the restoration of a very rusty and battered Alfa
Romeo 1900. There is video footage of this restored 1900 being driven (with
engine sound) after the initial series of still pictures. I did not have a
video recording camera through most of the restoration, also I was more
interested in working on the car, hence the still pictures.
I thank all of the people who helped us with the project. Many owners
provided advice, took pictures, and provided hard to find information and
drawings. You all know who you are and I thank you.
I finished the restoration this fall (2009) and the car returned home to
her happy owner.
