Lime Rock Park, which bills itself as The Road Racing Center of the East, in Salisbury/Lakeville, Connecticut, is home to a lot of great national-level and local level (right down to the grassroots) events. It’s normally a very relaxed place, but it appears something very bad has happened tonight. According to multiple sources, an unknown number of people broke into and trespassed onto the racetrack and crashed some sort of kart (possibly the Skip Barber cars or Endurance Karts), causing injuries severe enough to require immediate helicopter rescue.
According to sources, this took place sometime after 8 PM, and it doesn’t seem like there was any scheduled or sanctioned event going on at the time.
