History

STRUCTURE & PLAQUES

A structure designed by international motorsport champion, author, broadcaster and celebrated artist Sam Posey will be a central feature of the Lime Rock Park
Commemorative Area. Dramatic in its design and execution, it will feature individual panels to commemorate the giants of motor racing who have been part of Lime Rock’s rich, competitive history.

COMMISSION A PLAQUE

We invite your support of the permanent, commemorative plaque celebrating the career of these legends. Sponsorship investment for each addition to the commemorative structure is $25,000. The placement and unveiling of each addition to the Legends of Lime Rock will be celebrated during a major race weekend, ensuring the recognition and appreciation of individual accomplishment.

Legends of Limerock

For the 2017 60 th anniversary year at Lime Rock, the track is designing an all-new Winners Circle, a Legends of Lime Rock Commemorative Structure, benches seating and walkways along with a special Fan Photo Vista.

Centerpiece of the Lime Rock Park Commemorative Area, the Legends of Lime Rock Structure will form a permanent tribute to the men and women who are truly the 
“legends” of the sport — individuals whose careers have been intertwined with the history of this storied location.

THE SIXTY YEAR JOURNEY...

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.
