The Lime Rock Concours

This year’s Lime Rock Concours will feature nearly 200 outstanding invitation-only entries along the Sam Posey Straight, presenting superlative examples of beauty, elegance and speed, all displayed in interesting and diverse classes that are grouped by purpose and/or year, not exclusively by make and model.

For 2021, Porsche will be our Honored Marque and will serve as the presenting sponsor of Sunday’s events. Our Honored Collector will be Steven Harris, who will share with us his extensive and unique collection of 911-based RS Porsches. We will also have a special exhibit of significant competition Porsches.  

Judging for this year's Sunday in the Park vehicles will be (i) Peer Judging, in which the owners of the vehicles in each class (please see the Class List below) will be given ballots requesting their votes for the best two vehicles in the Class and (ii) a small number of field-wide awards where the winner will be chosen by the award's sponsor (e.g. the Greenwich Concours and Sports Car Market awards) or by Sunday in the Park senior staff.

Gathering of the Marques

Gathering of the Marques is incredibly diverse; literally hundreds of cars lining the track, grouped by make, model or country of origin. You'll see huge displays of Shelbys and BMWs and Corvettes and Jaguars and MGs... Astons, Rolls-Royces and Lotuses... Porsches, Peugeots ... Volvos and Saabs, Minis, Mercurys, Mercedes..., Fiats and Lambos. If it's an interesting and fun car, you can be sure their owners find their way to Lime Rock Park to park next to their brethren. In other words, if someone loves their car, you can be sure it'll be here.
