Located in Lakeville, Connecticut sits 1.5 miles of prime racing real estate with two optional chicanes. A fast and flowing race track with stunning elevation changes, Lime Rock Park is claustrophobically surrounded by armco, tire barriers, trees and mountains.

The track is used by NASCAR, the Ferrari Challenge, Grand-Am, Skip Barber and the American Le Mans Series. It is also host to a number of historic racing events, as well as SCCA racing.


History:

Lime Rock Park’s history is entwined with that of sports car racing. In its 55-year existence, almost all of the sports greats have raced there: Andretti, Moss, Gurney, Posey, Rodriguez, Hobbs, Hill, Donohue, Ward, Fitch… The list of great drivers who have raced here is literally endless, from the drivers in the industry changing Formula Libre race of 1959, through the stars of the 1960s, 70s and 80s in Can-Am, Camel GTP, F5000, Trans-Am and Atlantic.

Historic Lime Rock.
Lime Rock Park has seen virtually every kind of race car grace its corners and straights: NASCAR Stock cars and Modifieds, sports cars, showroom stock, Formula Fords and Vees, Grand-Am Daytona Prototypes, ALMS prototypes… McLaren, Lola, Aston-Martin, Ferrari, Watson champ cars and Kurtis midgets, Jaguars, Allards and MGs… This list too is endless.

Modern Lime Rock.
In 2008, the track was re-paved. Two new corner complexes were also built, giving Lime Rock the ability to be run in four different configurations. But owner Skip Barber went to great lengths to ensure that every aspect of the original layout, including width, camber, radius and elevation – even the “temporary” Bailey Bridge at the top of the Downhill – remained exactly as it was when the track opened for its first race on April 27, 1957.
