    0792 TR is one of the most amazing and beautiful barchetta´s ever, if not the most.
    Fun fact is that on the Speed, Style and Beauty book by RL and his cars, they called it wrong as 0780 TR, twice!
    Only at the end of the book on the racing history of each car they called it 0792...

    Yup I tested a racing car there last September the track management was very helpful but the noise level imposition is a huge pain in the posteriore...

    My pleasure. Some amazing cars to get to see in person. Unfortunately the bulk of them were just there for display on Sunday, and as noted above, no noise on Sundays at Lime Rock.

    That being said, huge kudos to Anthony and Lulu Wang for actually racing their yellow 250 TR and white 250 GT SWB! So everyone got to see and hear those two cars out on track where they should be!

    The white one is not a SWB but a 250 GT Interim Berlinetta LWB, 1465 GT.

    Thank you for posting those photos!

    This video is from 2015, but is of the McNeil's 250 GTO racing at Lime Rock at that year's HIstoric Festival. Pretty cool. Apologies if it has been posted previously.

    It's always a good show, but as this year's theme for the concours was "Italian Masterpieces" some notable Ferraris were there (plus other Maseratis, Alfas, etc.). There are usually some pretty great early Ferraris even on years where other marques are featured, but this was a good Ferrari year for sure.

    Last year's theme was Bugatti - I believe there were something like 72 original Bugattis lined up on the front straight, some impeccably restored, others with patina for miles - it was quite a display.

    I wish it wasn't an 8-hour round trip for me to get down there, but it's worth the drive.

    I understand there were about 21 classic Ferraris. Does anybody have an entry list with all the details?
