Lime Rock - Grand Am - Memorial Day Weekend - 2010

One of the most fan friendly places to see a car race is Lime Rock Park - located in the north western part of Conn.  This year, we were blessed with perfect weather and close racing. 

Rather than focus on the cars, I wanted you to see the faces of Lime Rock and Grand Am.   

Fans can get very close to the action - these folks are at the fence outside Turn One - AKA "Big Bend". Site of a lot of the action, spins and passes.  

The track held a "fan walk" through pit lane just prior to the start of the races. Drivers were available for pictures and autographs. Darren Law from Brumos poses for a quick snap.

Meanwhile, the teams continue to work on the cars in the pit.This crew member is polishing the surface around the lug nets to ensure that the glue they apply to stick them on has a clean surface. Makes for a quicker tire change.

I'm not sure abou these sun glasses, Bill!

However, my mind is made up about this flagger's hat...

The Bimmerworld guys celebrating their win on Saturday.

While the crew keeps on keeping on.

I assume this poor girl lost a bet and had to wear this outfit in public...

I kept asking these girls to get away from the car  so I could take a picture but they never listened.

Gallows humor in pit lane.
