Lime Rock Turns 60

April 28, 1957, Lime Rock's very first races
It was a special day when Lime Rock Park held its very first races. More than 6,000 fans travelled the winding, tree-lined country roads of Connecticut, New York and Massachusetts to bear witness. And have a great time... It was April 28, 1957...

Now here we are, April 28, 2017, 60 years later.

As we continue to recognize and celebrate our six decades of tradition, beauty and speed this year, do you think we were going to pass up the opportunity to do something a little bit special for you on this day?

Of course not...

If you turn 60 in 2017 – just like Lime Rock – we’ll give you a weekend ticket to your choice of any of this year’s events.

Yes, choose from Pirelli World Challenge, Memorial Day weekend, May 26-28; IMSA WeatherTech Northeast Grand Prix, July 21-21; and Historic Festival 35 presented by the Prestige Family of Fine Cars, Labor Day weekend, September 1-4.

And if your birthday is April 28, 1957, you not only earn that ticket, but we’ll also give you a pass for the race-day Mohegan Sun VIP Fan Hospitality experience.

We’re making it easy to redeem: Photograph or scan proof of your birthday and email it to Lime Rock’s ticket manager, then we’ll mail you the ticket(s).

Easy as pie. Or birthday cake.

So send your proof of age and a mailing address to, and we’ll reward you for 60 years of brilliance! Note: We are not able to give you your birthday present at the gate during the event. You must contact Lime Rock Park ahead of time, as described above, to redeem. Thank you... and Happy Birthday!
