PLEASE READ CAREFULLY: This event is quite different compared to our typical HPDE events.

Join Audi Club Northwest (ACNW) for Geschwindigkeit at Pacific Raceways on Friday, June 26th!

2020 makes it the eleventh straight year of hosting an ACNW event at Pacific Raceways; the world-class facility right in Seattle’s backyard!

Geschwindigkeit is a fantastically German word for “speed” and Pacific Raceways is a fitting location for this event as the front straightaway delivers one of the fastest track sections on the west coast! But not to worry, the 10-turn (nine turns with a “kink”), SCCA and NASCAR certified track offers more than just high speeds! The 2.25-mile track has a front straight at an elevation of 150 feet above sea level with a total elevation change of 125 feet, of which 100 feet occurs in just 1/2 mile between turn 2 and turn 3B. Winding through natural wooded terrain, sweeping curves and hairpin turns, Pacific Raceways is one of the most unique and challenging road courses in the United States.

Of special note: PLEASE make sure and read the requirements on the next page, including the linked driver’s handout. You will be expected to bring many things that are not usually required for our normal events.  In addition, you will be expected to comply with the requirements that will be provided in documentation prior to the event.  It is imperative that you read and follow these requirements so we can conduct a safe and successful event.  This is a difficult time, and ACNW is going to be hyper-responsive to both the state and the track requirements regarding the spread of COVID-19.  We all must take responsibility for making this a low risk event.   

We are structuring the event as follows:

  • Only solo drivers that have previously driven solo at an ACNW event may register. There will be no in-car instruction. Only the driver will be allowed in the car.
  • The number of participants will be limited to 50. No guests will be allowed.
  • The format will be open lapping. Each day will start with half the participants driving for the first 30 minutes of the day, and the other half will drive for the second 30 minutes of the day.  After that, anybody may drive whenever they want, for as long as they want; but we will meter the total number of cars on track to about 25. The track will be hot from 9:00AM-12:00PM and then 1:00PM-4:00PM after the lunch break.
  • Everyone who registers will first be placed on the waitlist, as we have been doing for the past year or more. We will then confirm up to 50 people into the event in order of registration time.

Driving fees for this event are $290 for one day.

Lunch will not be provided.  We recommend that you bring your own lunch or drive off facility for a drive-through option in town.

If you have any questions about registration, your qualifications or anything else, send a message to the registrar or the event master Seth Varty.
