What are the FCP Euro Proving Grounds?
The FCP Euro Proving Grounds at Lime Rock Park is the culmination of history and partnership between the two Connecticut-based organizations. A newly redesigned and refreshed autocross track is the centerpiece of the Proving Grounds with fresh pavement, curbing similar to full racing circuits, and multiple layouts, ranging from .222 miles to over half a mile. Here, drivers and their cars can be put to the test in a safe environment, all while reaching speeds upwards of eighty miles per hour.

The New FCP Euro Proving Grounds At Lime Rock Park
If you've been following along on our blog, Instagram, or Facebook, recently, we announced our ten-year partnership with Lime Rock Park. This partnership includes a refresh of the facilities, a redesign of the upper autocross course and skidpad, and renaming the FCP Euro Proving Grounds. Since this announcement, we've been inundated with questions on what the FCP Euro Proving Grounds is and what it will be used for. Let's get to answering some of those.
