The most fun you can have with your mittens on is a Winter Autocross Day at Lime Rock Park! Thanks to an investment in state of the art snowmaking equipment, you can now drive Lime Rock’s packed-and-groomed 1,200-foot Autocross Course as fast and as “slideways” as you want, under the watchful eyes of our professional winter driving coaches.
You do not need any experience. Just call to reserve your spot, bring your car – AWD, FWD or RWD – and have a blast!
Remove anything loose that’s in your interior and trunk
Have a full tank of gas
Snow tires will let you carry more speed
Bring tennis shoes or similar to change into (it’s hard to work the pedals with boots or galoshes)
A chalet is at your disposal for restroom breaks as well as snacks, coffee, hot chocolate and beverages. We keep a bonfire going at the autocross staging area, too.
Join the fun! You'll have the time of your life – and also learn the skills that will keep you out of the ditch!

Lime Rock’s Summer Autocross series returns for its third season with more dates than ever; 2015 features 19 dates for drivers of all levels to find the limit in their own car.
The autocross is a 1/2-mile course that can be run in three different configurations. It includes camber and elevation change and the three types of corners found in racing. The course is specially designed to have grassy run-off areas. This allows drivers to explore the limit and test their abilities without fear of damaging their car.
Lime Rock has two different programs to choose from.
• Open Autocross Days: $225 per driver, includes two professional instructors and is limited to 24 drivers. This is for drivers looking for seat time and limited instruction
• Coaching Autocross Days: $400 per driver, includes four professional instructors and is limited to 12 drivers. This is for drivers looking for a more structured curriculum and one-on-one attention
AxIS (AutoX Invitational Shootout)
At all Open and Coaching Autocross Days, Lime Rock uses electronic timing equipment presented by Spectro Oils. At the end of the year, the fastest 20 drivers are invited back on behalf of Wells Fargo Advisors to AxIS, where they compete for ultimate glory... who's the champion? (Also known as bragging rights!)

America’s fastest, most powerful production-bodied sports cars are in the Trans Am Series. Harkening back to its origins, Trans Am is the playground for the “pony cars” – Chevy Camaros, Ford Mustangs and Dodge Challengers with stock-block engines making gobs of h.p. A Trans Am race is 100 frantic miles of wheel to wheel, bumper to bumper, hardcore American-style racing. Support races TBA. Capping the weekend is the Sunday Royals Car Show, which draws 200-400 prime vehicles of every kind – from rare sports cars and contemporary supercars to hundreds of muscle cars from the 60s and 70s – and benefits local and Lime Rock charities. This longtime, traditional Lime Rock weekend is not to be missed.Buy Tickets

Tuesday Test & Tunes are open to all race cars with competition-licensed drivers. Once the Lime Rock Park race control people know which cars are coming, they are divided into groups of similar configurations and speeds. The goal is to give every team and driver as much track time as possible.

Only race cars that meet the current safety regulations of the sanctioning body under which it competes or tests are admitted, and drivers must present proof of a current racing competition license (such as but not limited to SCCA, IMSA, Grand-Am, VSCCA, SVRA, Vintage National License, RCCA, Pro-Rally, NASCAR, IRL, FIA, EMRA, CASC). Recent graduates (past 12 months) of an accredited three day (or more) racing school are also given eligibility consideration.
