2021 Memorial Day Classic

May 27 - 31, 2021 | Lime Rock Park - Lakeville, CT

A little jewel, showcasing an unbeatable collection of vintage race cars on a vintage track in a park-like setting, virtually unchanged since 1957.

Lime Rock has been in continuous operation since 1957, making it one of the longest-running, historically important and authentic race tracks in America. Just 1.5-miles around, Lime Rock is a surprisingly fast “momentum” course with short straights, complex corners and exciting elevation changes. Juan Manuel Fangio II famously called Lime Rock “A mysterious riddle, a track where a perfect lap will never be driven!”

All SVRA classes are invited. This year, Mazda is being celebrated as the Featured Marque. Eligible Miatas are invited to compete in the Miata Heritage Cup. A closed-wheel Enduro has been added to the Saturday schedule.

Many high-profile racers enjoyed some of their most memorable afternoons at Lime Rock, including Paul Newman, Sam Posey, Mario Andretti, Rodger Ward, John Fitch, Mark Donohue and Dan Gurney. Lime Rock has also hosted most of America’s most highly contested series, including Trans-Am, Formula 5000, IMSA GTP, Kelly American Challenge, NASCAR, USAC and some of the earliest and finest vintage races in America.

Competing at Lime Rock has been described as “a picnic in a park with cars,” since the track is cradled in a natural amphitheater formed by the Litchfield Hills. Spectators can be found frolicking on the grassy banking, but never on Sunday, since a court injunction has barred Sunday racing since 1959.
