The Lime Rock Park Historic Festival 38 will be closed to spectators when the vintage racers take to the Connecticut track next month, organizers announced, citing concerns over the ability to properly social distance.
The track will still host private groups in the outfield with no access to the track, as well as a limited number of spectators for Sunday in the Park activities spaced around the entire 1.5-mile racetrack. Tickets will only be available for sale in advance for Sunday in the Park; no tickets will be available at the gate.
“We are deeply disappointed to run the on-track activity days without spectators. The Historic Festivals have long been pillars on the Lime Rock Park calendar for the past 37 years. It’s hard for me to imagine this weekend without our loyal fans, but we are committed to the health and safety of the community.” said Lime Rock President Skip Barber. “While we may have altered the event to ensure everyone’s safety, the weekend should provide our devoted competitors a place to race as well as provide an opportunity for the fans to experience a spectacular car show.”
