Autocross Days: Description & Schedule

In 2013, Lime Rock Park made the autocross track available to the general public for the first time in its history. Until then, Lime Rock’s autocross courses – built in the early 80s – had been utilized only by specialized training organizations. By scheduling “Open Enrollment” Autocross Days, we anticipated that a relatively small but enthusiastic number of people would be interested in driving their cars on the “mini” race track.

What we got instead was a torrent of interest. So popular that we had to create waiting lists.

Why?

Because it’s so much goshdarn fun, not to mention safe and fast.

Lime Rock’s autocross is where you can drive your car at the limit, with virtually no worries about hurting the car. Each of the various corners – sweepers, increasing- and decreasing radii, 90s, 180s – is designed to test and develop your talent, all under the watchful and helpful eyes of Lime Rock’s renowned racing instructors. We see everyone from moms in minivans to pro drivers in race cars take to the autocross to hone, develop and refine their car-control skills. We also see more smiles than you can shake a stick at.

Saying “yes” to the hundreds of people asking for more Open Autocross Days, for 2014 we’ve scheduled 15 of them.

Sponsored by Wells Fargo Advisors of Farmington, Conn. (Mr. Chris Benjamin, 860.677.9114), we’ve kept the price the same, $225.

For that, you get more laps than you can count, feedback from the instructors if you want it, advice on tire pressures for your particular car, and the most fun you can have with your clothes on. (By the way, we encourage your use of an open- or closed-face helmet.)

You also have the opportunity to drive your way into the Wells Fargo Advisors Autocross Invitational Shoot-out (AxIS), the end-of-year competition Saturday, November 15, that pits the year’s 20 fastest drivers against each other to determine the Lime Rock Autocross champion! (Click here for more AxIS info.) (Click here for a third-party review -- Jalopnik -- on Autocross Days)

Each Open Autocross Day is limited to 24 drivers. At 8 of the 16 Open Autocross Days, you can bring an unmuffled and/or race car.

Separately, we’ve scheduled four (4) “Coaching” autocross days where, for an additional $175, the enrollment is limited to 12 drivers (even more laps) and there is one specialized racing coach for every three drivers. The coaches are guaranteed to knock seconds off your lap times and will even ride “right seat” for the fastest, most effective instruction.

To reserve your seat for an Open Autocross Day and/or Coaching Day, please contact one of our three specialists: Walter “Swervin’” Irvine, Ryan “Slideways” McIntosh or Jeff “Terminal Understeer” Grossbard.
