You are Cordially Invited to Cars, Cocktails & Conversation with Skip Barber, moderated by Todd Piro & Amanda Raus

About Skip Barber, Owner & President of Lime Rock Park in Lakeville, CT. Born in the Philadelphia area, Skip Barber, always a "car guy," managed to race while a senior at Harvard in the late 1950's. He won the very first race he entered. In his first professional race, Skip led world champion Jim Clark in an identical Lotus 23 for 190 miles; it was the car, not the driver, which couldn't manage the final 10 miles. Very talented, he eventually became one of just a handful of Americans to reach Formula 1. He placed seventh in his first Grand Prix, but his other six starts, the insufficiently funded car failed. Without a ride for 1975, he temporarily left the cockpit to open up the Skip Barber Racing School, which went on to huge success and continues today under new ownership. It was in the mid-1980s that Skip first acquired a financial interest in the historic race track Lime Rock Park and in 1999, after selling the racing school, he claimed full ownership of Lime Rock Park. And, his creation of the Lime Rock Drivers Club in 2008 continues to provide the finest members-only driving facility in North America. In 2018, Skip launched the podcast Driven with Skip Barber.
