Lime Rock Celebrates Sixty Birthday Party

09/02/2017

60 White Hollow Rd, Lime Rock, CT Phone: (860) 435-5000.

Lime Rock Park is throwing a party. A big one, on the evening of Saturday, September 2, during Historic Festival 35 presented by the Prestige Family of Fine Cars (Sept. 1 - Sept. 4). The party is to not only celebrate 60 years of tradition, beauty and speed at Lime Rock Park, but to also kick-off fundraising for the "Legends of Lime Rock" commemorative area in A Paddock. It's called the "60 Year Celebration." The celebration – cocktails, a sit-down, family style dinner, music, entertainment, auctions – will be highlighted by a special gathering of legends, people who are particularly important to Lime Rock's history and legacy.
David Hobbs, PJ Jones, Sam Posey and Jim Haynes – all drivers at heart, of course, but each of whom became influential beyond the cockpit – will engage in a lively discussion: Expect invigorating repartee amongst these racing icons, and tales will surely be told that few have heard before. Tickets are $200 per seat, limited to the first 300 people to order online.
