Lime Rock Festival

From our friend Tim Beeble of Fiat Club America comes this information about this year's Lime Rock Historic Festival and Italian Car Corral:

The Historic Festival at Lime Rock Race Track in Lime Rock, CT is the place to be over Labor Day weekend.

Sunday, August 31st: The Italian cars will gather on Sunday August 30th for the Sunday in the Park car show when the entire track will be filled with vintage cars including the Ralph Lauren collection of cars. There will be 250 judged show cars plus more than 400 cars displayed along the track. Bring your Italian car and park it with all Italian marques at Turn # 1 and 2. This is a better location for us this year. There is no charge to display your car. Simply buy an admission ticket to the show on the Lime Rock web site. Discounted tickets for $25 are available through Friday August 22nd, or pay $30 at the gate. Children 12 and under are Free. Discounted tickets are also available from AAA. See the link to the Lime Rock Ticket Window below. Please arrive at the track by 9:00 AM.

Monday, September 1st: The 20th Annual Italian Car Corral will be held near the gazebo at the Skid Pad area of the track infield. The Track will lead us in parade laps to show off the collection of Italian cars. The Track will also provide a goody bag for each driver. The driver and all passengers must purchase a ticket to the track. Monday tickets are $35 purchased on line in advance by August 22nd. Tickets are $60 at the gate. Children 12 years and younger are admitted free. AAA also sells discounted tickets. To participate in the Italian Car Corral, the driver must buy a Corral Parking Pass for $10 from the on-line Lime Rock Ticket Window using our club discount code "italian 2014".

Thursday August 28th: Also to kick off the Historic Festival, Lime Rock is leading a parade of Vintage race cars and sports cars through northwestern CT on Thursday afternoon. Lime Rock invites any members with appropriate 1975 or earlier sports, GT or racing cars to participate in the Thursday Vintage Race Car & Street Car Parade, which is presented by Abarth this year. The Track asks that any entered car have enough motor to keep up close with the parade on the hills around here – they've had issues with lovely but ultimately underpowered cars in the past delaying the parade. The parade application is available by clicking here.
