Fiesta Photo Dump…Friday & Saturday races

Here’s a “handful” of the gazillion pics I took from Friday and Saturday’s races.   I have broken them down into Greasypole and Seineboats.  I will post Sundays tomorrow.   Check out the full gallery below.  Enjoy!







The crew for the film production company Van Wormer International arrived on Atlantic Road this morning at 9am, just as the Aston Martin crew was wrapping up. The film is titled Home Alone Mom and is the 33rd in a series of movies based on the works of British romance novelist Katie Fforde.


Atlantic Road was closed for a brief period of time this morning while an Aston Martin raced up and down the shoreline. One member of the film crew thinks the car is an Aston Martin DB9, but he wasn’t one hundred percent entirely sure. Any car buffs, please weigh in. Thank you!
