Lime Rock, Skip Barber School Sign Long-term Deal

Lime Rock Park and Skip Barber Racing School, L.L.C., Wednesday announced the signing of a new agreement which extends and expands their relationship through the 2021 season. Under the agreement terms, the Skip Barber Racing School will continue as the exclusive racing and driving school of Lime Rock Park. The School now also becomes the exclusive provider for automotive manufacturer (‘‘OEM’’) events at Lime Rock Park, and by 2010 will be the exclusive provider of karting events. Skip Barber Racing School will have the opportunity to improve the Sunoco Paddock to accommodate a karting track layout and auto-exercise facilities without diminishing that paddock’s existing functions. It is further anticipated that the School will be able to provide Lime Rock with programs for its exclusive new club for motorsports enthusiasts, The Club at Lime Rock Park. ‘‘2007 has been a historic year for Lime Rock Park,’’ said president and owner John ‘‘Skip’’ Barber. ‘‘We celebrated 50 years of great racing, and we founded The Club at Lime Rock Park to offer a unique motorsports experience over the next 50 years to a select group of members. With the extended and enhanced Skip Barber Racing School association, I am confident that the future is very bright for Lime Rock Park.’’
