Motorsport culture from the 1980s to the 2000s will be honored at Lime Rock Park as the festival-style event celebrates the golden age of touring cars, a time when technology was changing rapidly and cars had the looks cool.

GRIDLIFE will treat these legendary vehicles like rock stars .
The GRIDLIFE Circuit Legends schedule is jam-packed with events on Friday (August 19) and Saturday (August 20), ranging from Time Attack shootouts and the GRIDLIFE Touring Cup and TrackBattles, to drifting and in-between activities like an arcade and competitions. (Scheduled event)
