Our Volvo group has been invited back to participate at the "gathering of the clubs at Lime Rock".
The 30th HISTORICS WEEKEND will be held September 1-3 this year.
.....SATURDAY - Vintage race cars from local clubs are raced and displayed.
.....MONDAY - Features many of the world's most significant sports racing cars. The pits are a show by themselves. The racing is world class.
.....SUNDAY - is set aside, without racing, for the display of some of the world's most significant automobiles. Hundreds of vehicles from collections here and in Europe, find their way to Falls Village for this prestigious event, and are along the entire front straight, from "the downhill" to "the first turn".
.....ALSO ON SUNDAY - Automobile clubs from the northeast are invited as well to attend, and their cars ring the track in groups by marque. This "Gathering of the Clubs" includes the world's most significant marques as well as our VOLVOS in The Swedish Car Section. This will be our third year participating....Our diplay does include show cars as well, but most of the cars in our display are not show cars, but are preserved, detailed Volvos.

online at limerock.com
PHONE - 860 435 5000.
IMPORTANT.....Tell them you are with the VOLVO GROUP for the "Sunday in the Park" ON TRACK DISPLAY.

.....Sorry to be so long winded. I am sure you can appreciate the planning that this activity takes, by both us and the track. It is our most-looked-foward-to activity of the year, and an honor to be invited. Our hope is, that everyone who can, will attend. We were fourth in attendance last year behind the Shelby group, BMW, and Jaguar, but ahead of 25 other marques. The experience is well worth it. Bring your folding chairs and a cooler [food is also provided at the track infield concessions], friends and family.

If you have any questions about our display call Dennis at 203 484 4969, or email him with your question to [email protected]

We will have a caravan leaving the "WOOD N' TAP", 1274 FARMINGTON AVE. [ROUTE 4], FARMINGTON, CT. at 7:45 a.m.

We will get to Lime Rock by 9.

For those of you going directly to the track, use the WHITE HOLLOW ROAD entrance. That passes the ticket/will-call office, and leads directly onto the track. Flaggers will direct you to the VOLVO DISPLAY.

Tickets can still be purchased at 860 435 5000, $22.......The weather looks great for Sunday!

Another great day at Lime Rock! The weather could not have been weather. The ride up is through such a picturesque area on traffic free roads.
..... Six Volvos with a Ferrari friend bringing up the rear caravaned to the track. Another eight met us there. Lanz brought our "swedish" tent. Everyone brought some food. The 25 of us were all smiles, talking Volvo.
..... The judges awarded one of our Volvos a first. A fantastic one owner 1800ES with a fresh mechanical restoration.

The show was better than ever. Four hundred vintage race cars and historic automobiles lined the front straight, and another 1000 club cars ringed the track. You name, it was there.

For those of you who are GRANDAM fans, their season finally is at Lime Rock on the 29th. Mustangs, Corvettes, Camaros, Chargers, Porsche and Ferrari all duking out for this seasons championship. Go to limerock.com for more info.
