Lime Rock Park in Connecticut - American’s oldest continuously operated road course - came about more by accident than design.

Construction of the course began in 1955, when open road racing had been banned in many states, and the use of military and civil airport runways for racing was losing favour with audiences.

Dubbed "the Road Racing Center of the East", the park has a turbulent history bedeviled by financial crises, discord with racing organizers, and extensive legal troubles, but it managed to prevail against steep odds.

In Lime Rock Park, the author, Terry O’Neil’s, details this history of mixed fortunes during the first twenty years of the park’s existence, from 1955 to 1975.

Containing more than a thousand images, hundreds of race results, and a wealth of previously unseen material, the book is a thorough deep dive into the rocky beginnings of a crucial site in the history of American automobile racing.

680 pages and 1070 color photographs.
