Saturday, July 6, ALMS Northeast Grand Prix - Jiminy Crickets it was hot as the dickens. On the track and at the track. And the racing action was even hotter. Four races, a zillion classes, lots of deserving winners.
In the big race, the two hour, 45-minute ALMS Northeast Grand Prix – greenflagged by Connecticut Governor Dannel Malloy – Lucas Luhr and Klaus Graf won for the second year in a row, driving the Muscle Milk Pickett Racing Honda Performance Development ARX-03a. Dyson Racing was celebrating their 30th anniversary, and with Guy Smith and Chris Dyson behind the wheel, its Lola-Mazda B12/60 finished second.
The entire race was filled with action, which is almost always the case in the wonderfully multi-class ALMS race at LRP.

If you’re wondering how Patrick Dempsey did in the GTC division and how Katherine Legge and Andy Meyrick did with the DeltaWing... well, not terrific. Dempsey and teammate Andy Lally had contact, mechanical and penalty issues, but still brought their Porsche 911 GT3 seventh in class. Legge and Meyrick, not so lucky; overheating ended their DeltaDay with 62 laps to go.
Hey, enough blathering. Instead, take a look at all the great pix taken by Greg Clark and Casey Keil.
It was a very cool day in a hot kind of way.
See you at Ferrari Challenge July 20.
