VSCCA Fall Finale: The Litchfield Cup

Lime Rock Park

About this event

  • Featuring the "Litchfield Cup with The Commonwealth vs. The Rest of the World" team race on Friday.
  • The event places a special focus on our Pre-War cars and awards the Victory Lane Pre-War Cup.
  • Enter a postwar vehicle at the regular entry fee, and bring a Pre-War car for free!
  • Preservation group available Saturday only. Details below.
  • Save $50 by entering by September 13!
  • Entries made before Labor Day Weekend will receive a small gift at check-in!

We'll close out our track season with this always popular event with at least seven sessions for all race groups. 

  • On Friday we'll again hold the "Litchfield Cup” featuring The Commonwealth vs. The Rest of the World". The format is what you've all enjoyed in the last two years - an additional ~25 minutes of track time with your respective team. All Fall Finale entrants are welcome and encouraged to participate in the Cup at no additional charge.
  • Open to VSCCA eligible and "Preservation" cars as well as Event Chair's allowances.
  • Approved, non-VSCCA members are also welcome to the Fall Finale.
  • On Saturday we will have three 20-minute sessions for Preservation and Pre-war cars. See details below.
  • The Boy Scouts will have their camping outing, it's always fun to have them visit us in the paddock. 
  • We will have a Potluck Cookout at 6:00 PM on Friday. You can sign up for it in the registration process.

This is always a great time of year to spend a couple of days at Lime Rock. Join us!
