Helping to build a new generation of enthusiast automotive tradespeople is the mission of the PISTON FOUNDATION: GO FAST, DO GOOD!
Lime Rock Park held its annual Historic Festival over the Labor Day weekend last month, featuring several days of jam-packed racing events and excitement. Frequent visitors to Lime Rock Park will have noticed a new presence at turn one starting with the Historic Festival 40. The Park generously donated billboard space to the Piston Foundation right on Big Bend. Our presence at the park helps us share our mission with Lime Rock race fans and embodies our role as a car community charity.
The Piston Foundation’s mission is to bring more young people into the collector car industry. By funding skilled trades programs in collector cars, we’re working to help today’s craftspeople transfer their skills to a new generation and help young technicians build rewarding careers in the trades and services of the collector car industry.
The very first Piston Technician Award was presented to this weekend’s most valuable race technician in a pit lane ceremony at the Lime Rock Park Historic Festival 40. The Piston Technician Award recognizes the essential contribution auto technicians make to the collector car community through their trade skills and technical automotive expertise.
