On October 12th and 13th Lime Rock Park was the venue of the 2012 Vintage Sports Car Club of America Fall Finale, One hundred vintage sports cars participated in 2 days of racing at the 2 mile track nestled in the rolling country side of northwestern Connecticut. Among the cars was No.271, Di’s TD, driven by DVC’s own Jim Sanders and crewed in the pit by Tom Rippert and Dick Suffredini. The two days of racing included a warm up race, a practice race and a sprint for each class on each day. Jim also participated in a race for all cars pre- 1955 on Friday, and a race for all cars beginning with “M” on Saturday. This was 8 races in 2 days. Di’s TD preformed quite well and ran more like a youngster rather than a 60 years old car. Of course she was spoiled by the pampering received from the 2 crack wrenches (racing talk), Tom and Dick, and the 112 octane leaded racing fuel she imbibed.
