Camping Policy 2014

No dogs allowed

There are many Lime Rock Park fans who also like to camp at the track for the race weekend. Although Lime Rock is not a campground, we have a significant area of the upper infield suitable for camping. We bring in a shower trailer in addition to the permanent men’s and ladies bathrooms (which do not have showers).

Camping at Lime Rock Park requires the purchase of a weekend admission ticket (unless you are a Season Pass holder). Children 12 and under are not charged for track admission or camping.

* All campsites are 10ft x 20ft. If you have an RV or a large trailer, you will need to purchase more than one site. (Most RVs will require three sites.) All sites are marked off. Some sites are located entirely on pavement. Lime Rock Park Guest Services personnel will assist you on site choice and appropriateness.

* Each 10x20 campsite is $15 in advance, $25 if purchased less than two weeks prior to event, $25 at Gate. No more than three (3) sites may be purchased by any single Weekend ticket holder.

Here’s what you need to know regarding the sites sizes (see complete Camping Rules & Regulations below):

* What you bring or tow has to fit inside the marked space of the campsite(s) that you purchase – no hanging outside the lines
* No box trucks (such as a Ryder or U-Haul) are accepted anywhere in the Camping Area
* No scaffolding is allowed in Camping Area

Below is the detailed list of Lime Rock Park Camping and RV Rules & Regulations. Please read and understand!

Who won the final Monthly Mega-Prize?

Lime Rock’s biggest contest in its history, the Monthly Mega-Prize Giveaway, ended December 31 when we randomly drew the name of the final prize winner.

And what was that last grand prize?

A Lifetime Pass to Lime Rock Park.

The only one in existence.

It’s even inheritable!

The lucky winner was David Dyson of West Hartford, Conn.

Each month from March through November, we randomly drew names out of Lime Rock’s electronic “hat” of email addresses, which had come from everybody who had entered the Monthly Mega-Prize Giveaway drawing. Great prizes such as racing schools, BMW driving schools, Yankees and Red Sox tickets, a Lime Rock Drivers Club personal “track day” and weekend getaways were won by Lime Rock fans from coast to coast.

All told, 10 mega-prizes worth more than $20,000 were won.

Lime Rock is especially proud to award Mr. Dyson, a professional musician (, the unique Lifetime Pass. David has long been long been a community leader, having led the major fundraiser for Hartford’s Tabor House (a residence for the AIDS-afflicted homeless) for 15 years. In recognition of his volunteerism and community commitment, Bank of America awarded David Dyson its annual Local Hero Award in 2009.
