Audi Club Northwest presents "University of Quattro" Driver Skills and Autocross at the Monroe Fairgrounds/Evergreen Speedway on Sunday, February 28, 2016!
Registration and Tech inspection of the cars begins at 8:00 am, with activities for each group getting underway at 8:30 am.
Do you have a new car and want to learn what driving it feels like in challenging course design? Or have you ever really learned how to drive the one you have?
University of Quattro is a place to push the envelope of your vehicle’s capabilities in a controlled environment with fantastic club instructors to work with you on becoming a better driver. This program has something for 15 year old drivers with a learners permit just starting their road experience, or the 50 year old that has always wondered if they really do know everything there is to know about driving.
Audi Club Northwest is here to provide training for YOU, the most important aspect of your car making it home safely every night. The University of Quattro program also qualifies you to attend other instructed lapping events later this year, such as Son of Quattrofest on March 20th at The Ridge Motorsports Park.
Sunday morning starts with our Driver’s Skills (DS) program which consists of a short ground school session where we discuss vehicle dynamics and how you can maximize your skills and minimize the chances of being involved in a collision. This talk is an important part of becoming a more polished driver.
After the chalk talk we transition to the large paved surfaces at the Evergreen State Fairgrounds where Audi Club Northwest instructors will put you through a group of exercises designed to teach new skills and expand on old ones in a controlled but exhilarating way. This is great fun.
Once our instructors feel you have learned what is needed in the exercises we will transition the pavement into an autocross. An autocross is a small course designed to test your new skills, and since it is timed you will be able to see your improvement as an instructor works with you on the strategies to better your next run through the course. This is where the fun REALLY begins. Expect to go home with sore cheeks as your smiling muscles will be the most tested of all.
Learning to be better drivers is what Audi Club Northwest is all about. For information about what our driving schools look like please go to <http://www.archive.audiclubna.org/about-acna-topmenu-33/acna-driving-schools-topmenu-62>. This link gives you a good overview of the exercises and activities that Audi Club North America driving schools contain.
Teen drivers are encouraged to take this course and Audi Club Northwest is offering a $25 discount. Parents can take the course too and have the same experiences and language to use in later conversations. You may share one car, but parent and teen must register as separate participants. This will be an all-day class and it will be the best focused time each of you has spent on driving skills. That's $175 total for teen and parent for the full day of instruction, practice, lunch together, and huge fun too. A parent or guardian needs to be onsite during the day with drivers under 18 years old. Minimum age is 15 yrs old with a current Driver's/Learner's permit.
The program is focused on driver skill development and learning about how you and your car work together for a safer experience on the streets and freeways. A coach will be with you in the right seat of your car to personalize the whole event.
Adult drivers and teen drivers may choose from the following event options:
• Driver Skills and Autocross with lunch, Adult. $100.
• Driver Skills and Autocross with lunch, Teen $75 ($100-$25 Teen Discount)
Your registration includes lunch. Guest lunches are available for $15.
An Audi car is not required for any portion of University of Quattro so feel free to invite friends and co-workers to this event. Audi Club North America membership is not required (although it is encouraged) for either the Driver’s Skills exercises or autocross.
Convertibles and Roadsters may run in Saturday's DS exercises and the autocross. Please see Event Requirements in the next screens for further details. Crossover Utility Vehicles (CUVs) like the Audi Q3, Q5 and SQ5 may participate, but Trucks, larger Sport Utility Vehicles (SUVs, SAVs) and other high-center vehicles are not permitted. Contact event master Pat Martin (firstname.lastname@example.org) or registrar Cris Brickey (email@example.com) for clarification if you are unsure about whether your vehicle qualifies for the event at Monroe.
It is okay to bring friends with you to spectate or participate. You may be able to arrange rides for them with designated instructors during the lunch break to experience first-hand what a Driver’s Skills day is all about. This is also an opportunity to just come out to an Audi Club Northwest event; meet some of the people involved, watch what is going on, and talk to us. You are welcome to spectate. Everyone who enters the facility must sign the waiver to be made part of the club insurance.
Helmets are NOT required for the DS Exercises nor the DS Autocross in the afternoon.
Note: When meals are a part of our events, ACNW will attempt to accommodate special dietary requirements if requested. However, meals are provided by third parties and circumstances may not always enable ACNW or its vendors to meet every special dietary need.
