SALISBURY, Connecticut — A spokesman for a Connecticut track says a man who crashed in a race of vintage cars is the first death in the historic-racing festival's 32-year history.

Authorities say 73-year-old Lee Duran, of Lyme, lost control of his car and crashed Saturday afternoon at Lime Rock Park during a race of pre-World War II cars. No other cars were involved.

Track spokesman Rick Roso said Sunday that Duran was driving a 1934 MG PA Special in a race of pre-World War II cars.

Roso says the victim's wife told him Duran had been racing vintage cars for a number of years.

The spokesman says the track will honor Duran when the festival continues Monday.
