LAKEVILLE, CT – Whether it be to check out a winter snowstorm in the hills of northwest Connecticut from afar or to take in the picturesque foliage in the fall, fans of Lime Rock Park are now able to be look live at the racetrack from anywhere on the planet via the facility’s website.
Lime Rock Park today announced that a “Track Conditions Camera” is now operating. The stationary camera is mounted outside the Outfield Chalet and “overlooks Big Bend, Left and Right Hander and part of the newly named Paul Newman Straight.”
The camera will provide a live look-see at Lime Rock Park at all times, except during blackout dates on major race weekends.
“We’ve designed and installed a network-based video system to capture weather and driving conditions in real-time, and the camera will stay live for most of the club events and special community weekends,” said Lime Rock Park’s Information Technology Manager, Ian Sieller.
“Installed in a heated and weather-proof enclosure, the camera clearly shows the track surface and one of the best views of the park. An overlay with local weather data helps guests know what to expect before they visit.”
The new camera not only shows track conditions but lists the current weather conditions, including temperature, although it doesn’t display the local time.
