The “Sunday in the Park” Concours, as part of Historic Festival 28, saw 197 entrants vie for awards in 24 classes on Sunday and at the end of the day Chairman Smith and Sunday in the Park Concours Director Kent Bain presented the awards beneath beautiful skies and a large, appreciative crowd. There were a number of spectacular vehicles present and Smith was adamant that the quality of the field made for “wonderfully difficult” decisions amongst the judges, especially regarding Best in Show.

Lime Rock’s Sunday in the Park was in fact inspired by what was initially seen as a problem: a 1959 court injunction that forbids cars racing on the track on Sundays – even vintage and historic cars! Sunday in the Park consists of two major components; the Lime Rock Concours, and the Gathering of the Clubs. This year’s Honored Collector is Joe Freeman, who has undertaken to bring, show and race at least four cars from his splendid collection.
