ince 1983, the East Coast's premier vintage racing and concours event has been the Historic Festival weekend at Lime Rock Park, held annually on Labor Day weekend. No other venue in the U.S. has three days of on-track racing sandwiching a prestigious concours event all on the same property. Plus, there's the Thursday kick-off vintage and race car parade through the surrounding towns that ends with a "Welcome Party" on the streets of charming Falls Village.

Of course, the vintage racing on Saturday and Monday is as big and exciting as usual. There will be more than 300 cars and drivers, racing everything from cars built before WWI to the best competition machines from the 1920s to the 1970s.

In between the two race days is the prestigious Sunday in the Park Concours. For 2014, expect up to 250 cars comprising the Lime Rock Concours d'Elegance, lining the entire length of Sam Posey Straight, from the Downhill to Big Bend. The cars are judged by eminent experts, by class, on the basis of design, rarity, provenance and condition. The remaining mile of track is completely filled with some 750 additional collector cars, displayed by enthusiastic owners in groups according to marque and origin. This Gathering of the Marques is a fascinating, eclectic display, where you can get right up close to everything brought by the clubs, from the Citroen Deux Chevaux to the 300SL Gullwing.

So mark your calendar and plan a ride through the countryside to Lime Rock Park over Labor Day weekend. It's a weekend full of tradition, beauty and speed you don't want to miss!
