Article: Lime Rock is Authentic

There are many tracks that date back to the Golden Era, but only a few that are almost totally unchanged for more than six decades. That’s authentic!

Letter From the CEO 

Welcome to the Trans Am Memorial Day Classic! Lime Rock Park has been continuously hosting competitors since 1957 and once again, drivers from around the globe have come to challenge this historic 1.53-mile, 7-turn road course. 

The paddocks are rich with history. Alfa Romeo, Camaro, Lotus, Chevron, Lola, Triumph, Corvette, Porsche—these are just a few of the legendary vintage race cars you’ll see on the track. Formula Race Promotions has filled two grids with FRP 2000 and 1600 racers.  Rival Porsche and Ferrari racers will vie for marque dominance and bragging rights during the International GT series race. 

The Trans Am Series presented by Pirelli has returned to Lime Rock Park to enhance its Memorial Day weekend race legacy that dates back to May 29, 1967. While Dan Gurney raced in the Indy 500, Peter Revson drove Gurney’s Cougar to a two-lap victory over Mark Donohue’s Camaro and Jerry Titus’s Mustang. Revson, Donohue and Titus filled the Trans-Am podium.

 Sunday’s Hagerty Cars and Caffeine Car Show along with the Royals’ Car Show will be huge with displays of everything from immaculate Corvettes, to pristine modern Exotics, to deliberately-funky Rat Rods.

On this Memorial Day weekend we honor, thank and remember all of America’s service members who made the ultimate sacrifice in service to our nation. Be it learning about a unique race car, meeting a famous driver or getting a rare autograph, your visit to the Trans Am Memorial Day Classic is sure to be memorable. This event is also being live streamed!  

I’m thrilled to present this world-class event and to welcome drivers, fans and enthusiasts of all ages to the Trans Am Memorial Day Classic.

Ladies and gentlemen, start your engines. Let’s go racing!

Best Regards,

Tony Parella
CEO, Parella Motorsports Holdings
