Skip Barber started the Lime Rock Drivers Club in 2007 to provide privileged access to Lime Rock Park to a broad spectrum of performance driver's, in an un-crowded, and un-hurried atmosphere. He felt that many track drivers would prefer the opportunity to choose a date, maybe bring friends, and then, having arrived on their schedule, not be placed in a run group with an assigned driving time, but instead, drive immediately. Of course, given his history, Skip insisted on premium coaching being an integral part of the Club Membership package, so coaches are always on hand to help members with their driving, or car setup questions, all at no additional cost. In fact The Club prides itself on the complete package that members enjoy, which is inclusive of all meals, beverages, (wine and beer at days end), the aforementioned coaching, as well as additional tickets and hospitality for LRP spectator events.
Other Club activities include Lime Rock Drivers Club private races, a planned trip to the Nurburgring Nordscleife, GPNY Club races, and very importantly Club training days on the skid pad, and autocross course, for members children, 15 years old and above. Those days include kart races for adults and teenagers. We even continue the autocross training through the winter, where members experience snow and ice driving in cars provided with snow tires and studs. Learning the Scandinavian flick is the favorite activity.
In conclusion, The Club, now in its fourth year, has also become an extended social gathering for passionate drivers to share their experiences.
So why not come test drive the club on one of our track days, and find out for yourself what The Lime Rock Drivers Club is all about?
The Concours will have a random drawing of the People's Choice ballots and one of the prizes will be a track day at Lime Rock -- a value of $1,500.
