About This Event

The Trans Am Series by Pirelli along with the Sportscar Vintage Racing Association (SVRA) and International GT will once again headline Lime Rock Park's traditional Memorial Day Holiday Weekend. Enjoy mixing modern and vintage race cars on the same weekend!  Activities start on Friday (May 22) as Trans Am series by Pirelli and SVRA are on track with practice and qualifying. On Saturday (May 23), things rev up with all-day racing excitement. With nearly 300 cars on display, the Sunday Royals Car Show (May 24) is a laid-back experience that benefits various charities. Racing revs up again on Memorial Day Monday (May 25) as we honor all servicemen and women.

Trans Am Presented by Pirelli 
Get ready for American Muscle! Sanctioned by SCCA Pro Racing, Trans Am features large car grids populated by Mustangs, Camaros, Challengers and Corvettes — a massive dose of pure Americana with a touch of nostalgia. The Trans Am Series began igniting the passion of motorsports fans in 1966 and has been home to some of the greatest names in road racing. Today, Trans Am continues to honor its legacy, while challenging the status quo in racing through a driver-oriented focus and fan-focused events. Visit for more.

From 200 mph Indy and Formula 1 cars to classic Jaguars and Porsches, SVRA events provide a “rolling history” of motorsport. SVRA is one of the oldest organizations in vintage racing, and the only one with a national presence, offering endurance racing events across the country. Visit for more.

International GT
The excitement continues with International GT, a North American racing series that includes The Stuttgart Cup, Mission Foods GT3 Cup Trophy and The Maranello Cup championships for late model Porsche and Ferrari competitors.

Sunday Royals Car Show
The eleventh annual Sunday Royals Car Show will be held on Sunday, May 24, 2020, from 10am - 3pm. This hometown show run by the Royals family of Connecticut and Lime Rock Park features all types of cars. Stroll the track's Sam Posey Straight and admire the muscle cars, import/tuners, street rods, classic cars, race cars and more. Food trucks, beverage carts and vendors will be located among the cars and the Lime Rock Cafe in A Paddock will be open. Tickets are $5 sold individually or part of the Weekend Pass. A potion of the proceeds will be donating to local non-profits such as Sharon Playhouse.

Farm-To-Track Picnic & Pig Roast
During the Sunday Royals Car Show, join us for the second-annual Farm-To-Track Picnic (12:30-2:00 p.m.). Enjoy a family-styled barbecue and fresh locally sourced foods all while dining at our communal picnic table. This will be an interactive, farmer hosted experience where you'll dine among unique cars. Seating is limited. Advance tickets $45 and will be available soon.
