Mustangs vs. Camaros at Lime Rock Park

LAKEVILLE — The Trans Am Memorial Day Classic, first of Lime Rock’s major racing weekends, took place May 26-29. The first Trans Am at Lime Rock was held in 1967, and has been a fan favorite ever since.

As in those early races, the battle is still between Ford Mustangs, and Chevy Camaros. Legendary drivers like Mark Donohue, Peter Revson, and Lime Rock’s own, Sam Posey, were all winners during those first few years.

As well as the premier TA event, this years racing included classes for International GT cars, predominantly Porsches and Ferraris, and  several groups of Sports Vintage racers from the early 1970s and 1980s.

The weather was perfect and the crowds on the hill were big and enthusiastic.
