    Default The Ghost of Racetracks Past.....

    BRIDGEHAMPTON - THE DUST AND THE GLORY

    It stood at the pinnacle of American car racing during the golden age of the sport in the 50s and 60s. They called it “The Bridge” and mostly they loved and feared the place. Stirling Moss called it the “most challenging course in America ” and routinely it embarrassed world class drivers during the heyday of the Can-Am, Trans-Am and international sports car races. It was a place of wonderfully diabolical natural beauty.

    The Bridge is no longer. It’s a private, luxury golf course now. Key portions of the track have been preserved however, and if you listen, you can almost hear the roar of the groundthumpers flying into Millstone corner at 200 mph to the whoop of 80,000 fans.

    Took some pics here a couple of weeks ago.... I had invited a rather eclectic group of cars; only Mustangs showed though. Hey, a week before Christmas, sunny, and 50 degrees in NY? I'll take it. Enjoy the photos.

    Cool, didn't realize that anything of it still existed ... thought that it had all been done over and developed for residential buildings.
