LAKEVILLE, Conn. – The Phase 1 renovations, upgrades, changes and repaving of Lime Rock Park are nearly complete. The entire track has been paved, the all-new entrance is almost done, and the optional Uphill and West Bend configurations are in place. As of Friday, June 27, the pouring of the apex and track-out curbing was underway.

Below are 11 more photos, taken Wednesday, June 25…
