Formula One Cars at Lime Rock Park on Memorial Day Weekend
Eau Rouge, Becketts, Casino, Parabolica.
Formula One cars will add two new famous corners to their Curriculum Vitae.
Big Bend and The Downhill.
For the first time, a breathtaking selection of Formula One Machinery from one of the great eras of the Series will be racing at Lime Rock Park on Memorial Day Weekend. Authentic cars from the World Championship will compete in two races organized by Historic Grand Prix, a group dedicated to the
preservation and use of these great machines. Cars that were driven to success by some of the greatest racers in the world will undoubtedly come close to breaking the Lime Rock Park track record in an unmatched demonstration of technical sophistication, power and handling.
The great names of the sport, Andretti, Senna, Gurney, Mansell, Moss, Ascari, Prost, and Schumacher all developed and affirmed their talent racing in Formula One. And, they drove cars which are legendarily faster than anything else around a given track.
Marques like Maclaren, Ferrari, Wolf, Penske, Cooper, and Lotus established their brands and competitive reputation racing at tracks like Monza, Silverstone, Spa and Monaco. Manufacturers like Toyota, Ford, Renault, Mercedes Benz, and BMW have spent hundreds of millions of dollars to show that they can match technical brilliance with the specialists who traditionally have concentrated on winning the Formula One World Championship.
With around 500 horse power available in cars weighing not much more that a thousand pounds these cars promise to provide a really tremendous spectacle on the 1.5-mile Lime Rock Park. And, they will be on view in a special Midway Paddock area.
For a fascinating moment, Lime Rock Park on Memorial Day Weekend will echo to the resounding sounds and spectacular sights of real Formula One cars from the glory days of the World Championship...when Villeneuve, Hunt, Peterson, and Andretti hurtled towards their destiny all over the globe.... not a spectacle to be missed!
