We are pleased to have found a new home at Lime Rock Park in the Northwest Highlands of Connecticut!
A village in Connecticutís Litchfield County, renowned for its vast historical, cultural and recreational resources,
Lime Rock Park's expansive grounds provide a dramatic setting for the Round Hill Highland Games.
Incredibly historic yet modern, with tremendous views of the surrounding hills, it is a beautiful venue and truly a park.

Lime Rockís history is inextricably entwined with that of sports car racing,
and is the most significantly historic road racing circuit in North America.
Its circuit remains exactly the same as when it opened in Spring of 1957, with 1.5 miles of up hill and down dale.
The track looks deceivingly simple but is immensely challenging to drive quickly.

It was Lime Rock Park that hosted the race that forever changed the face of motorsports in America, the 1959 Formula Libre event.
The best pros and the best amateurs in the best cars went head-to-head in a three-heat format.
Indy 500 winner Roger Ward won the contest in a midget, besting F1 cars and world championship sports cars.

Almost all of the sportís greats have raced here, from that industry changing Formula Libre race through the SCCA hay days
of the 1960s, 70s and 80s in Can-Am, F5000, Trans-Am and Atlantic as well as the Camel GTP and ALMS championships.
From the mid-1990s onward, Lime Rock has seen everything from ground-pounding NASCAR stockers and modifieds
to the technological tour de force IMSA prototypes.


NO glass bottles are allowed in any areas of the Park.
NO grills may be brought into the Park.

NO alcohol may be brought into the Park.
Beer is available for purchase at the Games.

Pets are NOT permitted on the grounds the day of the Games.
(Registered service dogs are allowed with proof of registration.)
