Great Weather on Tap for IMSA Races

Weather-good-weather-500
It looks certain that Lime Rock is going to have really good “racing weather” for this weekend’s IMSA WeatherTech Northeast Grand Prix. It will be hot and sunny, but not too humid – perfect “stock your cooler, bring the lawn chair and park yourself in the shade of a tree” conditions!

Friday will be sunny and humid, but the humidity bails-out overnight, leaving Saturday with blue skies and temps in the 90s.

Race day is Saturday, July 23. You can buy tickets at the gate -- and remember that veterans and active military are free, and kids 16 and under are free with accompanying adult(s). Parking is free, too. (You can also purchase Print-at-Home online)

IMSA WeatherTech is world-class international sports car racing – most of these cars and drivers are the same ones that race at the Rolex Daytona 24, the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring, the Le Mans 24 Hours and the 10-Hour Petit Le Mans at Road Atlanta. The GT Le Mans class has been especially exciting as the Corvettes, Porsche 911s, Ferrari 488s and BMW M6s are gunning to stop the Ford GT’s three-race win streak.

The Lime Rock Northeast Grand Prix is the only time this championship gets to the East Coast, so don’t miss out!

Road to Lime Rock Came Through Le Mans

LM-69-F-500

Did you know that the Le Mans-winning GTLM car is racing at Lime Rock Saturday, July 23 in the IMSA WeatherTech Northeast Grand Prix?

And that the cars that finished third and seventh and 11th are also here?

  That's right, folks. The top echelon of international sports car racing -- the cars and the drivers -- represented by the GT Le Mans (GTLM) class in the IMSA WeatherTech championship makes its much-anticipated stop at Lime Rock Park.

Lime Rock's Northeast Grand Prix on July 23 is going to be like a mini-mini Le Mans race.

Last month's Le Mans was the pitched battleground of a near re-enactment of the famous 1966 race, when Ford finally beat Ferrari.

On the 50th anniversary of that historic win, Ford did it again: Joey Hand and Dirk Muller in the new Ford GT beat ex-F1's Giancarlo Fisichella and Toni Vilander, racing the new Ferrari 488.

Those four drivers will be going at it again -- hard -- at Lime Rock July 23. Not to mention the drivers of the Corvette Racing C7.Rs, Porsche 911 RSRs and BMW M6 GTLMs!

The July 23 Lime Rock IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship Northeast Grand Prix will truly be an unprecedented grid of world-class cars, teams and drivers.

Friday and Saturday, July 22 & 23, is the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Northeast Grand Prix (weekend schedule below)

The GT Le Mans category, with the new, Le Mans-winning Ford GTs, the new Ferrari 488s, and the always competitive Chevy Corvette and Porsche 911s, plus the new – and fast – BMW M6, are looking to be the stars of the show, not to mention Prototype Challenge and GT Daytonas! There’s also the huge field that makes up the Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge (GS & ST) race, plus two Spec Miata races. We are not exaggerating when we say this is the must-do race weekend of the year. Find ticket info by clicking here.

Note: 16 and under are free, vets and active military free, parking free.

2016 Schedule

Circle-dates

Lime Rock Park Announces 2016 Schedule

  This posting provides the 2016 Event Schedule (below) and a link to the online Lime Rock Merchandise Store.

 The 2016 Schedule: Four big events, not three like last year, and includes the return of the wildly popular Pirelli World Challenge and Ferrari Challenge series – and a much-improved IMSA show, along with the 34th Historic Festival.

May 27-29, Pirelli World Challenge Memorial Day Weekend
Pirelli World Challenge (GT, GTA, GTS, GT Cup), world debut of SCCA Pro Racing United States F4 Championship series, and the Seventh Annual Royals Garage Sunday Car Show. PWC is a veritable hotbed of production- and production-based classes. The big dog division is GT, where the biggest, baddest racing machines from Audi, Cadillac, Aston Martin, Bentley, BMW, Acura, Nissan, Lamborghini, Porsche, Ferrari, Viper, Mercedes and McLaren bare their fangs in frantic one hour showdowns. The GTS division features a lot of the same manufacturers as GT, but the cars are closer to street spec. Don’t be fooled – the races for GTS honors are just as crazy – and it’s where Kia, Hyundai, Subaru and Scion choose to do battle with Camaros, Mustangs, Porsches, Audis, Astons and Nissans.

July 22-23, IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Northeast Grand Prix & Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge
WeatherTech championship: Prototype Challenge, GTLM & GTD; Continental championship: Grand Sport & Street Tuner. The big news this year is the return of the terrific GTLM class to Lime Rock. New factory efforts by Ford (the new GT!), BMW (M6) and Ferrari (488) join the GTLM fray against the fast and reliable Corvettes, while the GTD class sees the (new) Lamborghini Huracáns against Ferrari 458s, Audi R8s, Aston Martins, Porsche 911s and Dodge Vipers.

NEW for IMSA Race Weekend only: Teens 16 and under admitted FREE with accompanying adult

September 2-5, Historic Festival 34 & Sunday in the Park Concours
250 vintage and historic race cars, 1,200 concours and collector cars, iconic Honored Guests and special collections. Each year's Festival is always highly anticipated; there's so much to see and do it's hard to describe it all!

September 24, Ferrari Challenge North America Trofeo Pirelli presented by Singha Beer
Lime Rock fans have gotten their wish for 2016: The return of Ferrari Challenge. The 458C Evo is a tremendous racing machine, and seeing a squadron of them at full chat at Lime Rock is not to be missed. For the record, the Ferrari drivers love racing here.

PLUS, SCCA New England Region races Saturday, June 18 and the SCCA North Atlantic Road Racing Championship Run-offs Saturday, August 27.
