Audi Club Northwest presents University of Quattro Driver Skills and Autocross at the Monroe Fairgrounds/Evergreen Speedway on Sunday, February 28, 2021! We are thrilled to have long-time Club supporter Audi Seattle as the sponsor for this event! 

Do you have a new car and want to learn what it feels like to drive it in a challenging course design? Or have you ever really learned how to drive the one you have? Drivers with any vehicle brand are welcome to attend our events so please invite your friends to come have fun together. 

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 and for the 50+ year-old that has always wondered if they really do know everything there is to know about driving.

Audi Club Northwest is focused on providing training experiences for you as the driver, with the most important goal of your car making it home safely every night. The University of Quattro program also qualifies you to attend high-speed instructed lapping events later this year, such as Son of Quattrofest on March 21st at The Ridge Motorsports Park (RMP) and Verloren Gehen on April 10-11 at Oregon Raceway Park (ORP).

Please note that due to the ongoing pandemic we have modified track day operations to ensure we maintain social distancing in addition to other protocols in order to provide a safe environment for everyone at the event. Driver Skills and Autocross instruction will be done with instructor debriefs outside of the car.

Of special note: PLEASE make sure and read the requirements on the next page. You will be expected to bring items 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 very 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.

The event will start with a short 'ground school' meeting via Zoom on the Wednesday prior to the event.  Sunday morning starts with Driver Skills, an array of exercises designed to teach new skills and expand on familiar ones in a controlled but exhilarating way. For many, these exercises are the most fun part of the day! 

Once you have experienced what you and your car can do as part of the exercises, we'll turn the pavement into an autocross course. An autocross is a small course, created with an assortment of cones, which will test your new skills in a fun way. The course is timed, so you'll be able to see your improvement as you gain experience and develop the strategies to better your next run. 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. To get an idea of what the drills and exercises that make up our driving schools look like, check out this quick overview video captured at an event from a few years back.

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 this event.
