Includes one-day appearance (Saturday) of Sam Posey
Because Lime Rock is known to draw enthusiastic, knowledgeable car and racing fans – that’s you – automotive writers elbow each other to set-up shop during the Historic Festival. This year, for HF34, we’re seeing a veritable flood of writers, co-writers and photographers coming to the Park to sell, sign and hobnob with our fans. Look at the luminaries coming for Historic Festival 34 (in alpha order; we’re not billing one star writer over the other!).
Tom has done everything you possibly can in motorsports, from PR and marketing to racing, collecting and any other -ing you can think of. Tom thinks so much of LRP fans that he is spending a gazillion dollars (ok, maybe it’s just a bazillion, but still...) to have his two newest books FedExed from overseas to be at Lime Rock in time: Cuba’s Car Culture (co-authored with Bill Warner, of Amelia Island Concours fame), and Route 66 Barn Find Road Trip.
Gordon is America’s leading Indycar racing authority. He, and sometimes with co-authors, has written dozens of brilliant books on the subject including Jim McGee, Crew Chief of Champions; Second to One: All but for Indy; The Unser Legacy: Four Generations of Speed; and Mario Andretti: A Driving Passion. His latest tome, published just this month, is Penske’s Maestro: Karl Kainhofer and the History of Penske Racing. Karl and Gordon are both here this weekend.
Burt “B.S.” Levy
Burt is a prolific, very funny, very smart author who’s written many great novels that car and racing fans have come to love, including: The 200mph Steamroller Book II: The Italian Job; The Last Open Road; The Fabulous Trashwagon; Toly's Ghost; Montezuma's Ferrari: And Other Adventures, and many, many more.
Connecticut’s Resident Renaissance Man – will be at Lime Rock Saturday with the last 15 copies of his latest book, Where the Writer Meets the Road. Bring cash and get in line early Saturday if you want one! (FYI, David Bull Publishing is printing a second run of WTWMTR in October.)
This Year’s Honored Collector, Wayne Carini, host of the very popular Chasing Classic Cars, on Velocity Channel, has multiple autograph sessions scheduled, as do Honored Guests Peter Brock and John Morton, both of whom authored well-received books during their storied careers.
