Hi folks. I'm trying to track down a couple of photos taken by Bob Grier @ Bridgehampton '62. Needed for a new book about Cunningham, to be published by Porter Press this spring. Anyone know, please, how I can track-down Bob's photos & pay for use? Thanks!

LE MANS 1955 - Deadly competition - Animated short film by Q. Baillieux - HD (full movie)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=888&v=22I7yJiOu0s&feature=emb_logo

An animated short film by Quentin Baillieux, Le Mans 1955 is about the infamous Le Mans disaster of that year; it’s also eligible to compete in the 2020 Oscars.

John Fitch is featured as a main character.

From JALOPNIK

Le Mans 1955 doesn’t get into the history of the event, the
significance of Levegh’s crash, how he may have even saved Juan Manuel Fangio’s life with a hand signal letting Fangio know to get out of the way quickly. But it doesn’t really need to.
We see Levegh’s teammate John Fitch struggling with being essentially backup for his more impressive teammates, his joy at ending up running ahead of Fangio/Moss at the start, his pain at the loss of his teammate and friend.

FRANK DOMINIANNI: THE FINAL LAP!

From Member Allan James.

Hello Joe,
My name is Allan and I was friends with Frank Dominianni. The story of Frank being chased by a Trooper on the Jersey Turnpike is mine. Let me know if you and your group would like for me to come to the Fall Get Together to share it for your group. Frank's son has been after me to tell it on Motor mouth Radio but I think it is best in person.
Best Regards.

How about it fellow members?

For those not familiar with Frank...

The Bridgehampton Racing Heritage Group formally known as "Save The Bridge", is gathering pictures, stories and memorabilia from the Bridge. We hope to acquire a permanent place at the Bridgehampton Museum, but it will be very expensive. At this point we are trying to get the word out, gather e-mails and as a small start, the group is offering BRHG patches for $10 each. We will have a display at the Bridgehampton Rally October 6th.
http://bhmuseum.thenostrum.com/road-rally.php With your help and support to ensure that the colorful history of automotive competition in Bridgehampton
will not be forgotten. For more information contact Susan Savochka at [email protected]. Also please be sure to visit the site Bridgehampton Raceway Bridgehamptonraceway.net for a trip down memory lane!

Mea culpa for not proof reading (viewing) my last post. The track I posted is the Botniaring Racing Circuit. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Botniaring_Racing_Circuit The track image was right next to the Bridgehampton Image. Cut and paste is a wonderful thing as long as you check your work!

With thanks to BRHG FB member John DeMarco for bringing to our attention suggested email text provided by Lime Rock Park.

A note from YHWM: Whether you agree with some, all, or none of the changes put forth in Lime Rock Park's Motion To Modify, As stated in Mr. James Robertson’s (atty. for LRP) written statement of October 13, 2015, to the Salisbury PZC “… If the PZC enacts the proposed regulations they will be attempting to exercise a power that has been specifically pre-empted by state statute”. The PZC must certainly be aware of this, and will they (is this the first step) begin to move their proposed regulations up the govt legislative ladder until they accomplish their goal?

Comments????

Please take the time to fire off an e-mail, or better, written correspondence in support of Lime Rock Park.

Please email Michael Klemens, care of Nancy Brusie, P&Z Administrator: [email protected]

Dear Mr. Klemens,

I am a fan of Lime Rock Park and am very much against its operations being under the control of a local planning and zoning commission. I don’t think it’s right or fair for one particular business to be subject to the potential whim of a handful of people, especially those who don’t know the industry. Even if you ignore the undisputed economic benefit Lime Rock has brought to the Tri-State region, having a zoning commission submitting to the wishes of some nearby neighbors is the opposite of what public service means.

Be sure to include your name and town!

A friend’s family owns this car and they think it raced here in the fifties by a female driver. They bought the car out of Ohio a few years ago. Anyone have any info
Great shot of the 70 AMC Javelin
I found this while cleaning out a car trailer

That's me in the Bridgehampton wall/art/video in the blue Nomex. I painted these a few years ago.
Does anyone have any information about lap records at The Bridge? I’m just trying to find out what the C Production times were, back in 1971-1972
True story: Back in 1970, Penske and Donohue ran the AMC Javelin to its first Trans-Am win, in the rain. The people in - and guesting - with the team all wore red, white and blue windbreakers. They had the AMC logo on them. Well, it just so happened Grants Dept Store was running a promotion where the guys in the appliance dept, were also wearing very similar jackets, sans logo. Dad worked at Grants. Dad, my brother Steve, and I were at The Bridge that day. Dad and Steve had those Grants jackets on. They became guests of the team, not by invitation, but by assimilating into the color scheme. That netted them free food and drinks! No one said a word!

I painted Pedro Rodriquez in the Le Mans-winning Ferrari 330TR/LM winning the 1962 Double 400. One of the best days of my life.
