Sports Car Digest covered nearly 90 historic car races and rallies in 2011, starting with the VSCC Pomeroy Trophy and ending with the Legends of Motorsports event at Sebring.

It is now up to you to choose the best photo of the year. Similar to our Best of 2009 and Best of 2010 contests, we are asking for your assistance in helping us pick the very best vintage car racing picture from 2011. We narrowed down the thousands of photographs to the following 40 images, chosen solely upon the number of times they were viewed by readers throughout 2011.
To get a sense of the work that goes into these wonderful photos, we asked Senior Photographer Dennis Gray for his thoughts on the selected pictures. Gray said, “I fall in love with the how and why and not so much what the final image looks like. None of my photos were really accidents or being in the right place but more planning a shot and waiting until the drivers and cars were there.”
Please vote by leaving a comment with your favorite image. Write-in candidates: if we didn’t include your favorite picture, share a link of what you think was best. We’ll announce the winner in the January 26th edition of our newsletter and in the comment section.
Win Your Favorite Photo: We are again spicing things up this year, as we will randomly choose THREE winners among the comments that will receive a large print of their favorite photo. Be sure to include your email address in the comment form so we can reach you.
