Lakeville, CT — Lime Rock Park (LRP) and the Vintage Racer Group (VRG) announced Friday (Sept. 13) that the VRG will join the Vintage Sports Car Club of America (VSCCA) in co-sanctioning the Historic Festival 38 Labor Day Weekend in 2020.
This co-sanctioning effort combines two of the foremost vintage racing organizations in the Eastern United States with the premier vintage race event on the East Coast. The Sept. 3-7 Historic Festival will feature over 200 vintage and historic racers, as well as a world-class Concours and Gathering of the Marques.
The Historic Festival has been held annually since 1983 on Labor Day Weekend at Lime Rock Park. It includes the popular Vintage Sports and Race Car Parade, followed by three days of on-track racing and a prestigious concours event, all on the same property.
The VRG is a non-profit vintage race organization, run by racers, for racers. It is best known for its focus on safety and for its ability to run efficient race events. The Historic Festival adds to a 2020 VRG race season that begins in April at VIR, with race weekends at The Jefferson 500 at Summit Point in May, Thompson Vintage Motorsports Festival in June, the PVGP Historics at PittRace in July, The Bog at Watkins Glen in October and The Turkey Bowl at Summit Point in November.
The VSCCA annually holds nine events throughout the year, including three at Lime Rock Park: the Spring Sprints held on the first weekend in May, the Fall Finale held on the last weekend in September, as well as the Historic Festival.
