Audi Club Northwest welcomes members to Portland International Raceway (PIR) for QuattroFest 2016, sponsored this year by Portland Audi Dealers!
For the first time, the club is excited to offer a Cars and Coffee event on Sunday November 6th in the QuattroFest parking area. Any make and model are invited to participate. No charge. The Coffee Bus will be there to provide much needed caffeine assistance <http://thecoffee-bus.squarespace.com/>. If you register here in MSR for this part of QuattroFest we will be giving door prizes randomly to registered participants. The Cars and Coffee event will start at 9:00 and everyone is welcome to stay as long as you want. Helmets will be available for those who want to get a ride on the track with an Audi Club Northwest instructor.
QuattroFest has been our signature event at PIR for 17 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 5-6 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.
Our Saturday Banquet includes the now-famous Live Auction and a Silent Auction. A casual Reception starts at 6:00pm at the Red Lion in Jantzen Beach, OR. The banquet follows at 7:00pm sharp. Plan on a terrific dinner with wonderful friends, good food, and an entertaining experience for Audi enthusiasts.
We are pleased to announce that Ross Bentley of Speed Secrets will be our guest speaker at the Quattrofest banquet and he will be providing classroom coaching as part of our HPDE program. Take advantage of this fantastic opportunity.
On Sunday, you go back to the track and continue with either HPDE Lapping or Full Autocross all day.
And since Quattrofest didn't have enought going on already we have added a Cars and Coffee event. We are excited to offer for the first time a Cars and Coffee event on Sunday November 6th. Any make and model are invited to participate. No charge. The Coffee bus will be there to provide much needed caffeine assistance. http://thecoffee-bus.squarespace.com/ .
