Since 2009, Lime Rock Park has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places. If you've never been, it's a beautiful place. The 1.53 mile track was built in 1956, and it features 7 turns across it's hilly terrain. I've been there a few times over the years, and I can tell you that it's a thrill to be able to walk right up to the fencing surrounding the track and feel and smell the supercars flying by you at superhuman speed.
