Vintage Sports Car Club of America (VSCCA) Spring Sprints – Lime Rock Park

It is finally Spring here in Connecticut and that means the smell of the grease (paint) and the roar of Lime Rock Park. The Northwest Corner is home to LRP and really comes alive when there is an event at the track. You can see cars streaming into the track from New York, Massachusetts and lower Connecticut. It was the 1st time the Rally Mercedes has been to a VSCCA event. It’s a great event, well it’s not really an event but a process. Cars go from trailers to the paddock and then the sorting out begins. There didn’t appear to be too many DNS racers. That’s a good thing. We met Andy Reid from one of our favorite magazines – Classic Motorsports. He brought his latest project – a ’66 Volvo P1800S that is so very well done. And obviously, Andy shares our enthusiasm for the timeless beauty of these Swedish GT cars.
