Five Family-Fun Must Do Activities during GRIDLIFE Circuit Legends
LAKEVIEW, CONN. (16 August 2022)- Plenty of action will be happening on the track during the GRIDLIFE: Circuit Legends this weekend (Aug. 19-21), but there are also plenty of off-the-track activities for the whole family to enjoy while visiting Lime Rock Park.
You won’t want to miss out on these five family-fun activities.
1. Legends Concours
The Legends Concours is a celebration of the vehicles that inspired a generation. The invite-only collection is focused on impeccable examples of JDM, EDM and USDM racing and tuning cars from the late 1980s through the early 2000s.
Location: The Concours will be in the areas between the two chalets – (teal rectangle inside orange shape on map below.)

Spotlight: Earlier this year, Racing Pride expanded its world-leading movement to positively promote LGBTQ+ inclusion through motorsport into North America, partnering with GRIDLIFE. For the first time ever, the full set of Rainbow cars will be on display in the Legends Concours. Racing Pride ambassadors will also be on hand to chat about its mission.
2. GRIDLIFE Arcade
The GRIDLIFE Arcade is coming to Circuit Legends! At the heart of the festival, the arcade is part of the full GRIDLIFE experience and all the games will be free to play. This will definitely be the spot to hang all weekend.
