The Grand-Am KONI Challenge Series – the featured races during the Memorial Day “Road Racing Classic” weekend at Lime Rock Park – has allowed us to schedule a unique experience for LRP race fans: You can walk pit lane to get right next to the cars, teams and drivers just before the start of each KONI race!
That’s right, you don’t need a special Media or VIP Pass – your Lime Rock ticket is all you need! It’s called the KONI Fan Walk, and there are two; one on Saturday for the ST Class, and the other on Monday for the GS Class.
The cars, teams and drivers will all be in pit lane, with the drivers available for conversation and autographs. Noted racing commentator Greg Rickes will be on the PA describing the drivers, cars and teams. This is a truly unique opportunity – it’s the kind of direct access Lime Rock Park is famous for!
The KONI Challenge ST Fan Walk is Saturday, 22 May, from 2:00 to 2:30. KONI ST races are ferocious battles between all the hot – and very cool – smaller sporty cars: Mazda MX-5 Miatas, RX-8s, BMW Z4s, 328s and 330s, Chevy Cobalts, Honda Civic Sis, VW GTis, Subaru Legacys, Mini Coopers and more.
The KONI Challenge GS Fan Walk is Monday, 25 May, from 1:35 to 1:55. The GS Class is for the big-bore monsters: BMW M3s, Porsche 911s, Mustang GTs and more!
