"LimeRock was closed down today Wednesday for an hour and a half so Paul Newman could take a few last laps there in his GT1 Corvette and say goodbye. He was diagnosed with cancer 18 months ago and is not expected to make it past September.

The link doesn't work and the forum is down, but that is both sad and awesome.

Very sad news indeed. I've had the pleasure ofwatching him run the NARRC runoffs at LRP the last couple of years. Despite his age and the obvious fact that he had cancer even last year, his car control was truly awesome. He will be missed.

Thats sad but I can definitely say that he got to live his life to the fullest. What else can a person ask for?

Immortality. ;)

Very sad indeed. It's great that he had enough time left to do this. He must be very happy to have been given a last lap. Some don't get the chance.
