Trans AM SpeedTour Classic Cancelled At Lime Rock Park


(Press Release from Lime Rock Park)



The October 16-18 Trans Am Series presented by Pirelli and Sportscar Vintage Racing Association (SVRA) SpeedTour Classic has been cancelled. The event had previously been moved from traditional Memorial Day weekend May 22-25, 2020.

Trans Am and SVRA made this difficult decision due to ongoing logistical challenges associated with Connecticut’s COVID-19 travel ban.

“We deeply regret not hosting the Trans Am SpeedTour Classic this year, but we readily acknowledge the challenges associated with bringing race teams and staff from around the country together under the current challenging circumstances,” said Lime Rock Park President Skip Barber. “We know that Tony Parella and his team have exhausted every opportunity to conduct the Lime Rock event this year. Trans Am racing has been an integral part of Lime Rock’s heritage, and we look forward to the return of this tradition over Memorial Day weekend in 2021 and for many years to come.”

Fans who have previously purchased tickets for the Trans Am SpeedTour Classic event will receive a communication regarding their options and next steps in the coming days.

Lime Rock Park President Skip Barber reiterated Lime Rock’s ongoing commitment to the health and safety of fans, participants, and staff. “We are still hosting private track day events, autocross days, and Tapas programs as we turn our attention to the 2021 events calendar.”

For additional questions, Lime Rock staff can be reached by emailing [email protected] or by calling (860) 435-5000, Mon. – Fri., 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. More information about all major spectator events will be made available on www.limerock.com and on Facebook at www.facebook.com/limerockpark.
