"The 2004 Vintage Races at Lime Rock took place under perfect weather conditions over Labor Day weekend. However, there were several noticeable differences this year that continue to diminish this once premiere end of summer event. Event organizers now fill the upper parking area with both exhibits and a go cart track, which has eliminated all the parking near the track itself. Traffic was backed up for a considerable time, as attendees wrestled with the new parking options, which are a much longer walk. Fortunately the parking on the hill across from the start/finish line is still the best choice. The other disappointing and more noticeable item was both the dramatic lack of vintage race cars. One participant in the know said that the race participants had dropped from over 300 cars three years ago to 180 this year. All of this is a conscious effort by track owners and promoter Steve Earl, who runs the vintage races on the west coast, to allegedly upgrade the quality of the cars." - Words & Photos by Peter Crawford.
