Lakeville, CT — After first rescheduling the Trans Am Series presented by Pirelli and Sportscar Vintage Racing Association (SVRA) SpeedTour Classic from its traditional Memorial Day weekend to Oct. 16-18, Lime Rock Park decided today (Sept. 22) to cancel the event due to ongoing logistical challenges associated with Connecticut’s COVID-19 travel ban.
“We deeply regret not hosting the Trans Am SpeedTour Classic this year, but we readily acknowledge the challenges associated with bringing race teams and staff from around the country together under the current challenging circumstances,” said Lime Rock Park President Skip Barber. “We know that Tony Parella and his team have exhausted every opportunity to conduct the Lime Rock event this year. Trans Am racing has been an integral part of Lime Rock’s heritage, and we look forward to the return of this tradition over Memorial Day weekend in 2021 and for many years to come.”
Fans who have previously purchased tickets for the Trans Am SpeedTour Classic event will receive a communication regarding their options and next steps in the coming days.
