Location and Configuration

The event will utilize the 2.5 mile IMSA Course at Pocono Raceway in Longpond, PA.

The 2.5 mile IMSA Course uses the North Course and three - quarters of the NASCAR Tri-Oval. The 2.5 mile IMSA Course runs the opposite direction of NASCAR on the Tri-Oval. Upon driving down the front straight opposite direction from NASCAR you enter the "North Course" just past pit lane. Upon completing the road course portion of the 2.5 miles you enter back onto the NASCAR Super Speedway just prior to NASCAR Turn 2. The 3,055 foot Long Pond Straight is just ahead and then the exciting NASCAR High Banked Turn 1 (14 degrees) which exits back onto the long front straight completing one lap.

The 2.5 mile IMSA 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.

  • At Speed, In Car On-Track Instructional Driver Education
  • Ride-Alongs with Instructors adding to the on-track experience
  • Professional Flaggers and Station Workers
  • Five - 25 minute run groups

Why Attend?

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.

Note: While the event organizers will make every effort to maximize track time, due to the possible track conditions and weather the number of sessions and session length cannot be guaranteed.

*Please note that the car numbers are pre-ordered. If you are registering after 4/22/19 please be prepared to bring your own numbers. Painters tape (blue/green/white in color, no black tape) or pre cut numbers that are at least 5" tall will work fine. They must be on both sides of the car. Rear window or front door panels is fine. Please stick to your number choice that you selected during registration.
