Electrathon: A quiet (very quiet) race at Lime Rock Park

LIME ROCK— Tiny cars in a rainbow of colors dotted the upper auto-cross .2 mile track at Lime Rock Park, some so low to the ground you could swear they would scrape.
It’s hard to believe there was a person somewhere inside each of those cars. The only hint was the helmeted heads poking over the tops, glistening in the sun.

John Harney (the younger) sidled up to me at LaBonne’s a couple weeks ago, like a guy with a hot tip on a horse.
“You gotta go fish below the Housy dam.”
The what dam?
“I mean the falls.”
He went on to say a friend of his was pulling big brown trout out of the water under the Great Falls, above the power station and the iron bridge.
“I think she said browns.”
This is how it goes when people know you fish.
