More information from their website:

Lime Rock’s Winter Autocross is back for its 2nd season in 2016! This year we’ll have fourteen dates for drivers of all levels to find the limit in their own car.

The autocross is a 2/3-mile course that can be run in three different configurations. The entire course will be covered in smooth, slippery snow, perfect, similar to conditions on an unplowed, snow-covered road. The wide open spaces allow drivers to find their limit with plenty of room to make mistakes.

Please note: Conditions off-course are variable. Snow beyond the course limits is not prepared for driving and going off course may result in your vehicle getting stuck. In the case of a stuck car, Lime Rock staff will pull the car out. WE ASK THAT ALL CARS BE FITTED WITH A TOW HOOK TO EXPEDITE THIS PROCESS AND LIMIT THE POSSIBILITY OF DAMAGE TO YOUR VEHICLE

As in 2015, Lime Rock has two different courses for drivers to choose from.

Open Winter Autocross Days: $330 per driver, includes 2 professional instructors and is limited to 16 drivers. This is for drivers looking for seat time and limited instruction
Winter Driving School Days: $450 per driver, includes three professional instructors and is limited to 16 drivers. This is for drivers looking for a more structured curriculum and one-on-one attention.

The Bare Essentials
Drivers must be licensed
Cars must conform to Lime Rock noise regulations (ask if unsure)
Spectators welcome
Thin soled shoes recommended
Compressed air available on site
Cars without 4wd MUST be equipped with an appropriate SNOW and ICE tire. If you have questions about your tires, please feel free to call the office. Studded tires are prohibited.

Cancellation Policy
If a participant is unable to attend, Lime Rock must be notified at least one week prior to the event. In that case, Lime Rock will transfer the credit to another date of the participant’s choosing. No refunds or date transfers will be available if the participant notifies Lime Rock less than seven days before the event (call for special consideration).
