Lime Rock Park is such a wonderful venue for auto racing, racers and spectators alike. I enjoy the Historical Race Weekend just about every year for the past 25 years. The Park is such a beautiful setting amongst the rolling hills and greenery in Connecticut. I'm looking forward to the next chapter for Lime Rock.
My hope is that it does not get taken away by jet setters and turned into a private club. Being a man of more modest means and having the opportunity to race there several times, I would still like to be able to go there, and not just from a spectators standpoint.
Well what can i say. After 25 years and thousands of laps i hope i have not seen my last. The issue is now that Sunday operation will never be, what do the new stewards do to keep Lime Rock solvent. Without those essential large scale spectator events, it seems like they have no choice but to expand high dollar private access to supplement income from other current streams - track days (SCDA ) manufacture days, media road tests and the like. I suggest strongly that the new ownership group be prompt, informative, clear and transparent about what the plan is, and reveal the intention in a timely manner. The thousands of drivers, fans, sponsors and supporters deserve this and they deserve this soon.
