NEXT RACE - Lime Rock Park

June 21-22

Lakeville, Connecticut
Track: Lime Rock Park
Race Duration: 2 hours 40 minutes
Circuit Length: 1.5 miles
LIME ROCK PARK
At just 1.5-miles long, Lime Rock Park is the shortest track on the 2017 IMSA calendar. The 2017 event will mark Michael Shank Racing’s return to Lime Rock Park since its most recent event at the track in 2013. Prototypes haven’t raced at Lime Rock since that year, so now competing as a GTD team, Michael Shank Racing returns. Though the team hasn’t had the opportunity to race at the track as much as others in the category, Michael Shank Racing has a strong record at the track having picked up two runner-up finishes in 2011 and 2013 as well as a third place podium result in 2010. Michael Shank Racing finished runner-up in its most recent visit to the track in 2013 with Gustavo Yacaman and the late Justin Wilson in the team’s No. 6 Daytona Prototype.
