About this event
Audi Club Northwest presents the ACNW May Driver Skills and Teen Clinic at Bremerton Motorsports Park on Saturday, May 6, 2023!
Driver Skills is a one-day clinic on the fundamentals of performance driving hosted by the Northwest Chapter of Audi Club North America. Appropriate for novices and experienced drivers alike, Driver Skills will make you a safer, more competent driver. Working 1:1 with our Audi, BMW and Porsche club instructors, students rotate in small groups through the following educational segments:
- Ground school (classroom)
- Wet skid pad
- Threshold braking and accident avoidance
Driver Skills runs from 7:50am (gates open at 7) to 3:30pm, followed by an optional segment which runs to 6pm or dark, whichever comes first.
None of the segments involve timing or competition. Instead, you work 1:1 with our instructors at a pace appropriate for your experience and comfort level. Together, the segments improve your ability to look ahead, place the car precisely, control weight transfer, steer with the throttle, and brake effectively. Run groups are small, which means that wait time between runs is minimal. At the end of the primary sessions, students are encouraged to apply the lessons of the day in an optional segment on a large maneuvering course.
Many see this program as a great way to improve their driving and car control skills for everyday driving in any weather conditions. In addition, this course prepares and qualifies you for high-performance driving education (HPDE) events with the local Audi, BMW, and Porsche clubs. Want to do more autocross?
