Bridgehampton was a very fast circuit surrounded by sand dunes. It was far out on Long Island and high atop a hill with a commanding view of Sag Harbor. This is photo taken during construction
 Bridgehampton as it is now - a Golf Course but you can still see the faded bones of this once great race circuit.

 The same Chevron Bridge today.
 1951 Winner was Briggs Cunningham in this Ferrari 166 Inter
 In 1951 the second place car was also owned by Briggs Cunningham. This Ferrari 195 for Phil Walters. Imagine its worth in the 21st century.
