Lime Rock Park, Lakeville, CT – The Fourth Annual Sunday Royals’ Garage Car Show to Benefit the Wounded Warrior Project saw an astounding variety of cars and trucks parked proudly on Sam Posey Straight. The show is gaining a reputation for drawing a uniquely eclectic blend of cars.
There was everything from a Dallara-Opel Formula 3 car to a 1957 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz droptop, Mustangs, Corvettes, Ferrari-flavored Miatas and Bob Sharp’s IMSA GTU championship-winning 1975 Datsun 260Z. Bugs of all sorts rubbed shoulders with a stellar Stutz, a race-prepped 1950 Olds Rocket 88, a Superbird, a super Riviera and Rambler Marlins.
In other words, it would be difficult to find a show in New England with a wider range of coolness than the Sunday Royals’ Garage Car Show to Benefit the Wounded Warrior Project.
If you didn’t make it to Lime Rock, HERE for a collection of photos to get a sense of what this is all about; and you can see for yourself why Skip Barber is proud to host this benefit car show over Memorial Day weekend.
