Old Master

The visit of the ALMS circus to Lime Rock Park in 2008 will go down in motorsport legend. As almost always, the ALMS produced thrills and spills, almost to Moto GP level and far in front of most other top line 4 wheeled competitions.
The Audi/Porsche/Accura (or this week it should read Accura/Porsche/Audi) battle at the front has been simply stunning and once again it proved so at LRP.
Of course there were complaints about the track and the surface and the.....yeah whatever, the racing speaks for itself.
The Old Master, David Brabham stunned even the TV commentators, never mind the rest of us, with his audacious pass to snatch the lead on the penultimate lap.
For Accura to win overall for the first time must have been sweet but to do it in such style well you could see how much it meant in the faces of the Highcroft crew..........

Well SCP's Old Master was painting with light once enjoy the Dole Exhibition.
