Lime Rock Historics 34 2016 Sept 1-5
« on: August 13, 2016, 12:39:51 »
For Historic Festival 34, the Honored Guests are none other than John Morton and Pete Brock.

Five days of motoring magnificence begins Thursday afternoon with the vintage and race car parade through the surrounding towns that ends with a "Street Fair" on the streets of charming Falls Village. Friday is practice and qualifying for up to 250 authentic vintage and historic race cars spanning the years from the early 1900s to the mid-80s. Saturday sees those same cars competing in 15 to 20 races –and they do it all again on Labor Day Monday.

Two very special Race Groups have been created for HF34.

The first is a “Tin Top” group. As Festival Chairman Murray Smith says, “I sounded the clarion call for owners and drivers of saloons and ‘tin tops’ to join us to create a fabulous grid of pre-1970 sedans, such as Anglias, Hillmans, Cortinas, Ford Galaxies, Alfa 1600s, that sort. The list of eligible cars is long and storied and both fans and entrants will be excited to see the tin top race group racing at Lime Rock.”

The second very special Race Group is Historic Trans-Am. That’s not just a description – it’s the name of the club whose members own and drive only the authentic pony cars that raced in Trans-Am from 1966 through 1972. The Trans-Am Race Group is certain to be a fan favorite.

In between Saturday’s and Monday’s races is the prestigious Sunday in the Park Concours. For 2016, expect up to 250 cars lining the entire length of Sam Posey Straight, from the Downhill to Big Bend, judged by eminent experts by class on the basis of design, rarity, provenance and condition. The remaining mile of Lime Rock’s gorgeous circuit is completely filled with some 800 additional collector cars, displayed by enthusiastic owners in groups according to marque and origin. We call this the Gathering of the Marques, a fascinating, eclectic display where you get right up close to everything brought by the clubs, from beautiful American antiques and muscle cars to rare sports cars and perfectly restored BMWs, Jaguars and Shelbys.
