My buddy Bob picked me up this morning in his Fiat 500 Abarth to go to the Lime Rock Park in CT to see the Ferrari Challenge. The day was absolutely beautiful with temps around 70, low humidity, and a sunny blue sky with various white/fluffy clouds.

We arrived around 9:30 and went down to the paddock to check out the cars. There were so many and they varied from the 1940's - present. While admiring the vehicles, I couldn't help notice that I liked some from certain time frames better than those from other time frames. There were two cars in particular that I really liked because of their style and design. One of them was purple and had an orange print of some kind of cat face with its fangs and paws. It surely was colorful and cool. The other was more of a gray tone and it had skulls and bones. Both vehicles were designed really cool.

After we spent some time down in the paddock, we went back up to watch what was going on on the track. We watched two different groups do a 20 minute Ferrari challenge (Shell and Pirelli AM), the Ferrari Classiche (Classics), and two Ferrari Challenge Races. We spent time at various parts of the track and enjoyed watching the cars and listening to the engines roaring. I only got to see one of my two favorite cars on the track. It was numbered 134 and was driven by Michael Watt who was part of "Ferrari of Atlanta".
