Boost-rotation symmetric spacetimes are exceptional as they are the only exact asymp-

totically flat solutions to the Einstein equations describing spatially bounded sources

(“point-like” particles, black holes) undergoing non-trivial motion (“uniform accelera-

tion”) with radiation. We construct the Newtonian limit of these spacetimes: it yields

fields of uniformly accelerated sources in classical mechanics. We also study the special-

relativistic limit of
