Flags Wave During Memorial Day Weekend & The Club Miata Championship

June 8, 2018

American flags waived proudly over Memorial Day Weekend as we honored those who valiantly served our country. The holiday weekend brought LRDC members and their families together (along with thousands of spectators) for the annual holiday events at Lime Rock Park, headlined by the Pirelli World Challenge Grand Prix at Lime Rock powered by M.


This year, club members also took part in their own Memorial Day flag waving on the track with green and checkered flags guiding them through two races as part of the annual Club Miata Championship. 


Held in the afternoon of Saturday, May 26, and Monday, May 28, the races included a roster of 16 club members driving SM, SM2 or MX5:
