Hemmings Motor News Blog

Hemmings Motor News has been around since 1954. We're proud of our heritage, but we're also more than the Hemmings full of classifieds that your father subscribed to. Aside from new editorial content every month in Hemmings, we have three monthly magazines: Hemmings Muscle Machines, Hemmings Classic Car and Hemmings Sports and Exotic Car.

While our editors traverse the country to find the best content for those magazines, we find other oddities related to the old-car hobby that we really had no place for - until now. With this blog, we're giving you a behind-the-scenes look at what we see and what we do during the course of putting out some of the finest automotive magazines you'll ever read.

Worth the Risk of Frostbite: Lime Rock’s Snowcross Series

On the power into the first corner, my Volkswagen GTI starts to drift wide, the Dunlop winter tires fighting for grip on the pavement's mix of ice and snow. Coming off throttle fails to rotate the back end, so I grab the handbrake instead, then quickly countersteer to catch the purposely induced slide. Pointed in the right direction, I gently roll into the throttle trying to find grip, then prepare to set up for the next corner, a slightly uphill right-hander with a slippery powder base at the entry.

See the Hemmings crew drifting around snowy Vermont.

And here I've been thinking that the Lime Rock track was in Connecticut all these years. Who knew ?
