Track History

Public roads in the Bridgehampton area were used for races in the periods 1915-1921 and 1949-1953. After the tragic accident at Watkins Glen in 1952 Watkins Glen Grand Prix, racing on state maintained roadways in New York came to an end. The Town of Bridgehampton began searching for a new site, and located a parcel near Sag Harbor.

The first race on Bridgehampton Race Circuit occured in 1957, the same year as the first race at Lime Rock and one year after the third Watkins Glen circuit came into use. The facility has always been somewhat primitive, and development was limited by the hostility of locals who bought nearby housing on the assurance that the race track "would be going out of business soon anyway". It finally did in 1999.
