Auto Racing and Driving in New England: Car Clubs, Driving Clubs and Lime Rock Park
With few exceptions, owners of high-performance street cars dream of “seeing what it'll do” on the track. Marque clubs such as the BMW Car Club of America and the Porsche Club of America provide many services for owners of these makes, including technical advice, discounts, insider info, organized road trips and other fun gatherings.
With regard to the actual driving aspect, most of these kinds of car clubs also have protocols and procedures in place for its members to get on track. As you might imagine, Lime Rock is an extremely popular venue with these clubs.
In addition to the marque clubs, there are a variety of “drivers” organizations such as EMRA and SCDA (info below) whose very raison d’etre is to get its members on track in their street cars. As a member, you’ll know which day or days your club has rented Lime Rock, and like a marque club, you will pay something between $150 to $400 for those days.
Among both marque and drivers clubs, many even offer track cars for rental during their events.
See you around the track!
