Lime Rock Park is made of legends. Built in 1956, it's the oldest continuously operated road racing circuit in the United States. The names of those who have raced here, like Gurney, Moss, Posey, Andretti and Newman, just to name a few, are almost more famous than the 7 turns (only one of them a left!) that make up the track itself.

If you've never been to Lime Rock Park, know that it is truly a park, first and foremost. No permanent grandstands means the track's landscape is preserved and even though that may seem inopportune for spectators, Lime Rock Park actually provides some of the best views for a spectator this side of Laguna Seca. Everywhere you go, whether it be on the hill near the left-hander, the uphill, or even the bridge to see the cars entering the downhill, provides the safest, closest view of cars on track with a lush green background that is second-to-none. Lime Rock Park is truly a one-of-a-kind circuit.

For FCP Euro, this race weekend marks the biggest event in the history of the motorsports program. First, it's the closest track to our headquarters in Milford, CT. Second, it's the one drivers Michael Hurczyn and Nate Vincent are most familiar with. And last but not least, our entire company is coming down to watch the race first-hand as well as family, friends, and vendors of the company.

Michael Roselli most recently comes from the automotive website Jalopnik, where he ran their video programming, but his love for cars and automotive culture stretches back much, much farther than that. He joined FCP Euro thanks to their humble roots, fearless leadership, recent success and more importantly—where they’re headed. He’ll be working hard to expand FCP Euro’s video programming, audience, and voice that’ll help propel the company to the next level. He also wrote this bio entirely in the third person and feels kinda weird about that.
