Audi Club Northwest welcomes members to Portland International Raceway (PIR) for QuattroFest 2015, sponsored this year by Portland Audi Dealers!
QuattroFest has been our signature event at PIR for 16 years, with driving activities for adults and teens on both days, a Reception and Banquet on Saturday evening, and access to the attractions of metropolitan Portland easily available by car or MAX light rail trains to downtown right from the track. November 7-8 is a weekend that the whole family can enjoy.
The PIR facility is a City of Portland Park with enough room to simultaneously run lapping sessions and skills exercises on Saturday, making it ideal for driving schools like QuattroFest. This physical arrangement also allows QuattroFest to hold a Full Autocross, which will be available all day Sunday. The track has two miles of asphalt for everyone to enjoy. Easy to learn but challenging to perfect, PIR has a storied history. It has hosted many huge events including CART, IMSA, Trans Am, ALMS, NASCAR, and other national racing series.
On Saturday, the driving event starts with our Drivers Skills (DS) program for novice drivers, and lapping for more experienced drivers.
Learning to be better drivers is what Audi Club Northwest is all about. For some information about what our driving schools look like please go to <https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U21597saV44&list=UUEDyhngQrey9DIMoU-9O1Ug> where you can view a video. This link gives you an overview of how Audi Club North America driving schools are structured. Drivers Skills students will participate in the DS Autocross in the late afternoon (no helmets are required for Saturday DS or DS Autocross). HPDE Lapping does require helmets on Saturday and Sunday.
Our Saturday Banquet includes door prizes (lots of great swag) and the now-famous Live Auction (this year a Silent Auction will also be included). A casual Reception starts at 6:00pm at the Hilton Vancouver across the bridge from the track. The banquet follows at 7:00pm sharp. Plan on a terrific dinner with wonderful friends, good food, and an entertaining experience for Audi enthusiasts.
On Sunday, you go back to the track and continue with either HPDE Lapping or Full Autocross all day.
If you have questions about how to register, email the Registrar (link below). We can help you tailor this event to your experience and needs.
We hope you will consider joining us for this very special QuattroFest!
