Lime Rock Park is one of the most beautiful places to see a race. After a year away, I appreciated it even more, especially as they upgraded the facilities.
The drive to Lime Rock from northern New Jersey is a driver’s drive. Narrow, curvy roads with elevation changes and relatively few places for the police to hide make it just as much fun as watching the race. Plus, the scenery is amazing, particularly in the Connecticut hills.
This year was a bit challenging for me, as I sprained my ankle prior to the race, and my mobility was limited. But, I made a home base right outside of turn 6, which you can see in the panorama is in the middle of a lush valley, and experimented with shutter speed. I also was in the right place at the right time when the vintage car passed the entrance, which made for a classic sepia tone.
