Why Attend?

 

After the great success from last year's Twilight event, we had no choice but to do it again! Last year was the first Audi Club Twilight event ever to be held at Pocono Raceway with over 100 drivers attending, this year's event will only be better!

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.

 

 

The Night

Twilight runs and operates similarly to any other High Performance Driver Education event however, Twilight takes place during the day into the night. We will have approximately 12 site lights set up to illuminate the corners of the turns. Allowing drivers to experience high performance driving as though they were at the 24 Hours of Le Mans or Daytona.

Twilight also offers drivers the opportunity to experience new challenges in HPDE driving. Students will learn how to adjust their vision for night time driving and learn new key tools such as not "over driving" the headlights and the importance of creating new night time "reference" marks. The Twilight schedule will give each run group a progression into darkness where the exciting new challenges will become more apparent as the daylight becomes fainter. Each turn of the North Course will be illuminated aiding drivers in each brake zone and through each corner. Various locations throughout the pit and paddock will be lit as well.

Many car clubs throughout the Southern United States hold night time HPDEs simply because normal daytime temperatures are too hot during the racing season in these areas to safely and comfortably run track events. Many cars benefit from the cooler night time temperatures, ultimately increasing the horsepower they are able to generate with the less stressful environment. 

 

Location and Configuration

The event will be run on the North Course at Pocono Raceway in Longpond, PA. The "North Course"  features a 1.5 mile road course with 9 challenging turns and utilizes a portion of the high bank oval and turn 3 of the NASCAR circuit. ACNA-NJ will be occupying  the entire Pocono Raceway Facility for Saturday Night July16th, 2016.
