Vintage cars…classic heat.

The 2010 SVRA Vintage Grand Prix of Mid-Ohio, June 25-27, was HOT!  The cars were hot, the on-track action was hot, AND the weather was definitely hot!  But even with the heat, the crowd for the three-day vintage weekend was impressive…and they were not disappointed. The racing was fantastic. Summer surely started with a bang!

Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course is known for its excellent spectator viewing areas. I’m usually on the move during a typical race day…walking the track, visiting the pits, and strolling paddock. Here are a few photos from three of my favorite spots at Mid-Ohio.

 

Turn 1, flat-out left-hander (also features pit exit). Here's a 1965 Shelby Cobra 427 exiting Turn 1, hustling on up to the keyhole.

 

The Paddock area at Mid-Ohio offers an excellent opportunity to see the cars up-close. Here is a beautiful 1957 Lotus Eleven.

 

Turn 4, at the end of the long back straight, leading into a series of corners known as "Madness". Here's a smart-looking 1972 BMW 2002ti maintaining good momentum as he exits Turn 4.
