2023 Memorial Day Classic
“In racing they say that your car goes where your eyes go…simply another way of saying that which you manifest is before you.” – Denny (Enzo’s master, The Art of Racing in the Rain)
Lime Rock Park has been in continuous operation since 1957, making it one of the longest-running, historically important and authentic race tracks in America. At just 1.5-miles around, the 7-turn track is a surprisingly fast “momentum” course with short straights, complex corners and exciting elevation changes. All SVRA vintage car classes are invited to experience the authentic character and breathtaking thrill of racing Memorial Day weekend at the Park.
Lime Rock has hosted most of America’s highly contested race series, including Trans-Am, Formula 5000, IMSA GTP, NASCAR, USAC and some of the earliest and finest vintage races in America. Many high-profile drivers have enjoyed memorable afternoons at Lime Rock, including Paul Newman, Sam Posey, Mario Andretti, Rodger Ward, John Fitch, Mark Donohue and Dan Gurney.
Described as “a picnic in a park with cars,” spectators can be found strolling through the paddock or relaxing on the grassy banking. But never on Sunday! A court injunction has barred Sunday racing since 1959.
