What is AxIS? (go end to see current 2014 AxIS Standings)

AxIS is the acronym for Lime Rock Park’s “Autocross Invitational Shoot-out,” sponsored by Wells Fargo Advisors of Farmington, Conn.

It is the end-of-year autocross competition where the 20 fastest drivers from the season’s “Open Enrollment Autocross Days” are invited to race against the clock in hopes of being crowned the Lime Rock Autocross Champion Presented by Wells Fargo Advisors.

Here’s the way it works...

At the end of every Open Autocross Day between January and November, each participant is given the opportunity to lap the circuit the fastest they can. All the times are recorded, and at the end of the season, the top 20 drivers are eligible to enter the AxIS competition,
at no charge.

The morning of AxIS is spent with all drivers practicing. After the catered lunch, the Shoot-out begins...

Using the full half-mile autocross track, each driver gets an out lap, five timed “flyers,” then the cool-down lap.

It’s fun to watch and of course, even more fun to do!

When everyone has finished doing their best, the results are tallied as everyone heads to the Infield Chalet for the awards banquet.

After some good food and beverage, Chris Benjamin of Wells Fargo Advisors announces the top three drivers of the day, with some nice prizes and trophies for the winners.

Whoever the Autocross Champion is, it’s been well-earned, as he or she has beaten hundreds of other drivers to the title!
