It was Lime Rock Park that hosted the race that forever changed the nature of motorsports in America – the 1959 Formula Libre event. Indy 500 winner Roger Ward won the contest in a midget, besting F1 cars and world championship sports cars.

Thanks to Lime Rock and the Formula Libre event, sports car road racing became a significant element of the American sporting scene.

Lime Rock is 1.5 miles traveling up hill and down dale – deceivingly simple but immensely challenging. Recognized on the National Register of Historic Places, Lime Rock Park’s history is firmly entwined with that of sports car racing.
