Andy Blackmore has just real released the Lime Rock Park Spotter Guide and it is now available to download This will receive an update on Thursday night when a new livery is announced….
For years, the track was listed as being 1.53 miles in length—the story goes that right after it was built, somebody used the odometer in a Chevy to measure the track length—and 1.53 was taken as gospel. Following the 2008 reconstruction (see below), Lime Rock’s operations people measured all four possible configurations, and as it turns out, each was 1.5-miles long, plus or minus a few hundred feet. The “classic” configuration is 7 turns, while the three optional layouts are 8, 9 and 10 turns.
