Update: Lime Rock Renovations
Friday, June 27, 2008
This is the new entrance and ticket booth complex.
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…

No more “swamp” in this part of B Paddock, thanks to the dirt that was removed from the Uphill and dumped-and-graded here.
Even the last bit of A Paddock toward Big Bend was paved.
