Location and Configuration
The event will utilize the 2.5 mile Double Infield Course at Pocono Raceway in Longpond, PA.
The 2.5 mile Double Infield configuration is comprised of the newly paved and widened North Course, the front straight, Long Pond straight and the South Course. Upon driving down the front straight in the opposite direction of NASCAR, you will enter the Northern Infield (North Course). After completing the northern infield, you will enter back onto the NASCAR Super Speedway just prior to NASCAR Turn 2. You will then proceed down Long Pond Straight where just prior to NASCAR Turn 1 you will brake and enter the South Infield where once completed, you will proceed on to the front straight and pass over the start/finish completing one lap.
The 2.5 mile Double Infield Course provides an exciting, fast, fun and educational way to experience your Audi on a racetrack like no other in the Northeast! A mix of Autobahn and a road course! This layout has long been the desired configuration of many professional and club drivers as it provides a track like no other in the Northeast! The closest would be Daytona International Speedway, Tudor/Rolex configuration.

Lessons and skills learned at these events really do transfer to everyday driving, as numerous former students attest to all the time. Many prior students report avoiding accidents thanks to things they learned at these events. Many others report simply enjoying their daily commute more knowing more about themselves and their cars. There really is no better way to improve your skills.
One of the goals upon which the Audi Club North America was founded was the idea that driving skills can and should be improved with practice in a controlled environment. After all, how better to enjoy your car than to be confident that you really know how it will react in all situations? This event will be held at a racetrack due to ample space, no oncoming traffic, plenty of runoff room, and workers before each corner with flags to warn drivers of any upcoming danger. Despite being at a racetrack, the event is not competitive, is not timed, and most certainly is not racing.
