Lime Rock and Royals' Garage Team Up for Veterans

Second Annual Veteran’s Memorial Car Show is Sunday, May 29 - This big, on-track car show is the result of a joint venture between Royals’ Garage in Torrington, Conn., and Lime Rock Park. The show date is the Sunday during Lime Rock’s traditional Memorial Day Grand-Am race weekend, which features the Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge race on Saturday and the Rolex Sports Car Series Daytona Prototype & GT race on Monday.

Proceeds from the Royals’ Garage Presents the Veteran’s Memorial Car Show at Lime Rock Park benefit the Veteran’s Memorial Wall at the refurbished Torrington City Hall.

The Sunday show is 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., rain or shine. All Show Cars will all be displayed on track, and is open to: Muscle Cars; Tuners & Imports; Street Rods; Classic Cars; Antiques; Antique Trucks; Race Cars; and Exceptional Contemporary. There is no pre-registration – show up, but you’ll have to pass muster with the Royals – and both spectators and entrants pay cash at the gate.

There will be four trophy award winners: The People’s Pick, Royals’ Crown, Skip’s Selection, and Veteran’s Vote.

Glenn Royals and family are the longtime producers of the highly respected Litchfield Hills Historic Automobile Auto Show & Swap Meet at the Goshen Fairgrounds (2010 was its 54th anniversary).

Admission is $5 (kids 12 and under free); it’s free admission for ex- and current military; the Car Show Entry Fee is $10 ($5 for military); and the first 300 entrants receive a special metal commemorative dash plaque. A limited-edition commemorative poster will be available for $5, too. Parking is free.

The Grand-Am paddock, the all-new Midway Cafe Food Court and the Lime Rock Midway will also be open to show-goers.
