Lime Rock Partners with Wounded Warrior Project

Over the course of the Pirelli World Challenge race weekend May 26-27 at Lime Rock Park, professional sports photographers will volunteer their time and expertise to train military veterans in the art and science of photography. Organized by ace sports photographer Dan Burns for the Wounded Warrior Project, the two-day Canon-Lime Rock Park Photo School is part of WWP's overall effort to integrate U.S. veterans back into civilian life.

Rod Kurst Grand Marshal for PWC

In Troy, N.Y., a 15-year-old boy is told by his good buddy that he and his Dad and his uncle are going to “that new race track in Connecticut, Lime Rock, it’s their opening day, wanna come with us?”

That Troy High School freshman said yes.

So it was that Rod Kurst and his friend watched all eight opening-day races, “with the hillsides packed with fans” and “having a terrific time.”

New for the Pirelli World Challenge season opener! The Park Pavilion Pass

Even with the growing number of trees on the spectator hillsides, there are times when you might not be able to take advantage of them when it’s hot and sunny.

So we’ve come up with a ticket-upgrade option called the “Park Pavilion Pass.”

VIP Fan Hospitality at Lime Rock Park

One of the best things about Lime Rock Park is that fans who buy regular General Admission tickets are not treated as second class citizens: You get terrific comfortable viewing from your choice of gorgeous, shaded hillsides, and the fencing is close to the action. Parking is free, access to the race team paddocks is free, youths 16 and under are free, and active and retired military are free. In other words, fans and families don’t have to buy anything extra to truly enjoy the day at the races at Lime Rock Park. Which is not to say there aren’t ways to upgrade your fan experience!
