Photos from the 2015 TUDOR GTD-PC race at Lime Rock Park

Lime Rock Park is one of the most beautiful places to see a race. After a year away, I appreciated it even more, especially as they upgraded the facilities.

The drive to Lime Rock from northern New Jersey is a driver’s drive.

Farewell, Lime Rock.

I’ve been to Lime Rock for most of the ALMS races over the past 10 years (see last year’s photos), but I’ve never been to a Grand-Am race. So it was sadly fitting to attend the last-ever Grand-Am race at Lime Rock Park in Lakeville, CT, especially because the combined ALMS-Grand-Am series won’t be returning to Lime Rock next year. Unlike the searing heat of the ALMS race on July 4th weekend, we were treated to a perfect fall day at the end of September. The fall foliage made a spectacular backdrop.

It’s quite a sad ending for many reasons: Lime Rock is the closest racing location with major racing series support in the New York City area; the ride to the track is absolutely stunning; the track itself is short and makes for great racing; and because it’s really wonderful to sit underneath a tree at the top of a hill watching cars race by. I will miss you, Lime Rock; I hope a major series returns again, because I’ll be there in a heartbeat.
