Internship Program

The Lime Rock Park Internship Program is geared toward high school and college graduates who love cars and road racing and have the desire to learn some of the fundamental business, marketing, hospitality and public relations aspects of the fast-paced sports industry.

Why does LRP want an Internship Program at Lime Rock Park?  

  • To find highly motivated pre-professionals to help organize, promote, and bring new perspectives to the 2015 Lime Rock season.
  • It’s not slave labor, but mutually beneficial partnerships - Interns will gain valuable field experience in career paths, professional contacts and mentors in an exciting and unique market.

As an unpaid Lime Rock Park Intern, you'll have "behind the scenes access" to all major Lime Rock Park race weekends and enjoy the benefits of working closely with Lime Rock Park managers - including networking opportunities, off-site events, referrals and more.

"There is no place better than the Driver's Club at Lime Rock to develop an overall appreciation and understanding of both track and business functions. Being an Intern at Lime Rock not only offered me the first hand exposure I was looking for in a unique business that I loved, but also allowed me to pursue my passion for racing, leaving me with great on and off track experiences, thrills, memories and friendships that will remain with me long after the racing season ends." - Mike Briskie, 2009 Intern for The Club at Lime Rock Park

“An internship at Lime Rock Park gives you a great understanding of a business, but most importantly teaches you how to be part of a team.  The fast paced action of a race weekend and the hard work that leads up to an event creates a setting where working as a team is crucial to success.  If you are successful at this, there is nothing more satisfying then looking across the track on a crowded race weekend and not seeing a free patch of grass on the hillside.  Lime Rock Park has given me skills, friendships, and many memories that will last a lifetime.”  - Mike Siepmann, 2007 Marketing Intern
