The only on track action yesterday, was when a few of the drivers walked the track to get reacquainted with the 1.53 mile road course.

This track is nestled in the state’s northwest corner and the track sits in a valley surrounded by the beautiful foothills of Lakeville, CT. The natural landscape of Lime Rock provides tremendous spectator viewing, however with not a single grandstand in sight, it's very much a park. I can say without a doubt this is one race track that every race fan should come and see!

Lime Rock has played host to nearly every great race driver, car and series over the past 47 years. From Carroll Shelby to Roger Penske, Mark Donohue, Al Holbert and Tom Kendall; from SCCA Regionals, to midgets, Trans-Am, Can-Am, IMSA GTP, the American Le Mans Series and NASCAR.

Stay tuned for continued coverage of both the Rolex GRAND-AM Memorial Day Classic and the fifth round of the 2010 Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge!
