September 5 marked the finale of the Lime Rock Park Historic Festival 40 presented by Corvette, despite the varying weather conditions.

Father-son duo Mike and Scott Joy took the top two spots in the featured Historic Trans Am race, with watch manufacturer Autodromo handing Limited Edition Vic Elford Prototipo Chronograph to a driver from each race group. (Each watch was signed by Elford before his passing.)

Winners were specifically chosen based on how each driver showcased and exemplified the vintage racing spirit.

Autodromo also awarded up-and-coming racer and volunteer flagger Kate Garabedian based on her sportsmanship and driving skills.
