Driver Insight: “My favorite part of Lime Rock Park is the final corner, the downhill. It’s a high speed, high G-load corner that requires precise placement of the car. It’s a tricky turn that yields a high consequence if you get it wrong, that always adds some excitement. Another part of the track I love is the general location of the facility. The rolling lush green hills around Lime Rock are gorgeous and make for a pleasant commute to the track.” – Cooper MacNeil, Driver No. 22 WeatherTech/Alex Job Racing Porsche 911 GT America
