Noah's Little LeMans Picks
Lmp1 #7 Peugeot. Hard to pick against McNish in this race, but I am.
Lmp1 gasoline #20 Oryx/Dyson. I thought this team was a joke when it was announced for Lime Rock. Steven Kane can drive, Al Masaood can keep it off the wall, We know what Butch can do.
Lmp2 #26 Signatech
GT # 45 Flying Lizard
GT/am #61 AF Corse
Lmpc #05 CORE
GTc #66 TRG
GTc will be the hardest class to win. It will be a true endurance race for them. Whoever survives the punting will win. The car that can be rear ended by a diesel truck the least will win. All the cars are capable of winning otherwise

Black River Stages

Peter and Donnie


Subaru go sideways.





BMW 318i in paddock

Stage 1 M-Sport Fiesta. Available from Team O'Neil 15k car + 10k kit.

Subaru that Mother liked.

Martin Donnelly in the EVO 9 won again. The Focus won the 2wd class. 7/35 DNF

Cyndy doesn't know if she should make her car a rally car, buy a fiesta and have O'Neil convert it for her, or buy a KTM motorcycle.

Lime Rock/Lebanon Valley Double Header Saturday



The Mystic Missile modified had the best hauler, no contest.

Drive up hot dogs at the paddock exit.

Bryon Chew. Most drivers got a handle on turning right, a few did not. Bryan Chew did not, qualified last and lasted about 4 laps before pulling in.

Lime Rock Burger

Winner. These cars rode over the curbs like pickup trucks compared to anything else I've seen. Lots of suspension travel, the car was not unsettled at all.

This car has been unsettled.

This car unsettled itself and the fence. I saw it lose it coming out of west bend putting the power down.

Resettling the fence. The backhoe is driving in a new post.

Win shot. These cars suited Lime Rock very well, good racing and incredible sound. When they started both at the beginning of the race and after the red flag it sounded like something was exploding. I approve, though not very many people, certainly below a Friday ALMS crowd.

F2000 using the original uphill. About a 50 second lap.


Next stop, Lebanon Valley for french fries and fried dough. It was very cold but we prepared with long underwear.

"Historic" Modifieds, kind of like all the "historic" towns you have to drive through going to Lime Rock and Lebanon Valley. There were about 10 and they were fairly competitive. Modifieds ended their season last week, we saw the last budget sportsman, sportsman, and pro stock races of the season.

Now to watch Indy Car at Motegi, Japan.

Introduction day at nursery school. Elliot had a really good time.

We took a boat from Cala Gonone, Sardegna out to some caves and then the beach.

Rachel at the beach.

Maine should get some ocean water that is as warm as the Mediterranean Sea. I think that it would help boost tourism.

There were also some goats and steers at the beach.

Santo Poco honeymoon.

Oliver building a wooden boat at Stillwater. It floated.

Cameron at camp. Cyndy's fuzzy-on-purpose-camera-lens.

Me and Oliver at Stillwater Mountain fire tower.

Elliot ready to go up fire tower. Someone put up a cheater ladder so you don't need to climb the supports.

Noah and Kate leaving the fire tower.

Elliot in the water.


Oliver found some mud on the beach.

Cyndy, Cameron, and Oliver walking on the big shoal on the island with the beach that has that big shoal.

Boat Dad.

Up to no good not fuzzy Elliot.

"Now I'm driving the bus."

Cyndy bush whacking.

Oliver on a big rock.
