Canaan Railroad Days Family Fun Night
Lawrence Field, Main Street in North Canaan
Thursday, July 25, 2019
5:00pm - 6:30pm
Join the Lime Rock Park crew in nearby North Canaan, CT., for the festivities of Family Fun Night, held on Thursday, July 25, 2019, during Canaan Railroad Days.
Starting at 5:00pm at Lawrence Field on Main Street in Canaan, Lime Rock Park will be one of more than a dozen family fun stations. Visit Lime Rock's station to climb aboard the Red Race Car and get a feel for what it's like to sit behind the wheel of a real Panoz Le Mans Prototype (LMP) roadster. Get your picture taken as you imagine the power of 600-plus horsepower produced by the V8 engine that would have been uniquely placed in front of the driver. When on the track, these champion race cars could easily reach speeds of over 240 miles per hour and were built especially for 24-hour endurance racing.
While Lime Rock Park's Red Race Car is simply a show car, kids will get a real sense of the car's power as they're sitting low to the ground and grabbing onto the made-for-racing steering wheel. Science of Racing info sheets will be available at the station to provide kids with an understanding of what makes the car go so fast.
All kids 16 and under get into Lime Rock Park for free during all major racing events there. During Family Fun Night at Canaan Railroad Days, kids will get a chance to win race day tickets for their parents. Make plans now to join us in the fun.
