Sunday Royals Garage Car Show Award Winners
LIME ROCK PARK (May 26) - The Fourth Annual Sunday Royals’ Garage Car Show to Benefit the Wounded Warrior Project saw an astounding variety of cars and trucks parked proudly on Sam Posey Straight. The show is gaining a reputation for drawing a uniquely eclectic blend of cars.
Today there was everything from an ex-Ralf Schumacher Dallara-Opel Formula 3 car from 1995 to a pristine 1957 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz droptop. Perfect new Mustangs and Corvettes to Ferrari-flavored Miatas and Bob Sharp’s IMSA GTU championship-winning 1975 Datsun 260Z. Bugs of all sorts, a stellar Stutz, and a race-prepped 1950 Olds Rocket 88. A Superbird and a super Riviera. Models T and A, Daytona Rams and Rambler Marlins.
In other words, it would be difficult to find a show in New England with a wider range of coolness than the Sunday Royals Garage.
If you didn’t make it to Lime Rock today, we’ve put together a pretty good collection of photos for you to get a sense of what this is all about; and you can see for yourself why Skip Barber is proud to host this benefit car show on the Sunday of Memorial Day weekend.
