Saturday May 24th
Once again, for the 16th year in a row, Nutmeg Miata Club will be hosting a day at the races...and we are moving back to Memorial Day weekend after 3 years on Labor Day weekend. the featured race will be the IMSA Continental Tires Challenge series and the Porsche GT3 Cup
The “Conti Tire” Challenge – some of the best stock car road racing in the world – is two big classes, Grand Sport (GS) and Street Tuner (ST). Each has their own stand-alone race. In GS, you’ll see the big, loud and fast Camaros, Porsches, Mustangs, Aston Martins, BMWs and 370Zs banging fenders. The ST race has the quick and agile Hondas, VWs, BMW 128/328, Mazda 3/MX-5 and Porsche Boxsters. The U.S. version of the extremely popular Euro Porsche GT3 Cup series makes just its second-ever visit to Lime Rock, while the uniquely exciting VSCCA race adds a little history to the weekend. Capping the weekend is the Sunday Royals Car Show, which draws 200-400 prime vehicles of every kind – from rare sports cars and contemporary supercars to hundreds of muscle cars from the 60s and 70s – and benefits local charities
As in the past, we will have a hospitality tent, lunch, raffles, VIP area parking and Parade Laps during the lunch break on the track. (Parade laps for the first 50 cars that sign up) these laps are NOT speed laps..it is a PARADE!!..wave at the crowd, etc.
e have tried very hard to maintain ticket prices..and this year will be SAME AS LAST YEAR!! This year's tickets will be $65 per ticket--
We will also be shutting off ticket sales by about MAY 18th this year, or when the 100 tickets are sold. Remember, this also applies to the Parade Laps---FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED so to speak. We WILL be keeping track of when checks are received as to who gets to be in the Parade Laps.
Checks can be sent to:
NUTMEG MIATA CLUB
21 Kane Ave
Stamford, CT 06905
Payment may also be made via Paypal...IF IT IS SENT AS A GIFT/FRIENDS & FAMILY
This is just an early heads up so folks can plan accordingly. We have had as many as 70+ Miatas in attendance in some years. great opportunity to meet fellow enthusiasts from across the Northeast...and beyond. Canada?..sure..had 10 cars from up north one year. I talked to the track today and found out that there will be a significant Mazda presence at this race...Mazda car corral will be there also (separate deal from us). and the now defunct All Mazda Meet held at Orange County Choppers for the past 6 years will now be at the Royals Car Show on Sunday at LRP. so there will be a lot going on that weekend..and Miatas/mazdas will figure prominently is the festivities.
