Lime Rock (CT) Historic Car Race - Labor Day weekend

Date: Sept 2-5, 2011

We camped trackside at the Lime Rock Historic Car Race in the beautiful northwestern part of CT this past Labor Day weekend and had a blast. We have signed up for trackside camping again for 2011.

It is boon dock camping - full water tanks required going in and generators are permitted during the usual hours.

For more info about the event experience here is a link to my blog report from our 2010 adventure...

Lime Rock 2010 Trip Report

As an fyi - we reserved site 12 again. For those who do not want to pay the premium for trackside camping, Lime Rock does offer free camping in a field situated further in from the track, parts of which are on a hillside. It's worth noting that camping in the free area is first come first served.

Here is a link to Lime Rock's sign up page. Look for trackside camping specifically. Price posted is for camping only. Weekend passes will have to be purchased separately.

He always does. We've been going there for years now. One of our favorite State Parks is about 15 minutes south of LR.

We've never camped at the track however. I always thought camping there was free, btw.

Save room on Sunday for some river tubing.

I turned a lap on the track last September...on my mountain bike. I now have two tracks under my belt - Laguna Seca, also on the mountain bike, and now Lime Rock.

Don, as you know fan access to the paddock and trackside viewing is unrivaled at Lime Rock. Makes for good times.

Great times! I couldn't believe the access we had to everything the first time I was there.

I especially love going there when the leaves are changing color...

A truly special track.
