Someone drove an RV on the trail at Lime Rock

Yesterday’s training for the IMSA round at Lime Rock Park was briefly delayed by rain, resulting in a red flag. During most race weekends that would mean a quick break for teams to review the tracks earlier in the day and a calm track. On this particular occasion, however, a motorhome driver saw an opportunity for a quick turn with the track clear.

The anonymous driver sort of put his bus-sized camper van on the track, apparently in the wrong direction. The driver only lowered his behemoth a few meters onto the track before being pulled over, stopped and stopped.

IMSA reporter John Dagys has documented the highly questionable hot ride attempt. A track spokesperson told him the driver was pulled over for reckless endangerment, ending his qualifying race early. No one was injured in the process, the track was not damaged and the race resumed as planned earlier today.

The traveling recreational vehicle was impounded on the trail and then apparently sent to state police. It now stands in their driveway, a monument to questionable decision-making. Creating examples seems to have worked so far: no other motorhomes, vans, or even motorhomes were reported on track in the hours that followed.

The IMSA GT classes are scheduled to race around Lime Rock Park later today. Only the GTD and GTLM classes will be racing today, leaving no room for another camper to bring their bus-sized mobile home to the track.
