The Carolinas Audi Club has teamed up with shops around the Carolinas to provide a tech inspection for those signed up for our track days. The inspection generally takes 45 minutes to an hour. Please contact the shop to schedule your vehicle inspection 7-14 days before an event. The shop will look at key components to make sure your vehicle is track worthy. This will give the shop enough time to order any replacement parts that may be needed before the event.
Print the tech inspection form and bring it with you to the shop along with your helmet and a copy of your event registration. Bring the completed and signed copy of the form with you to the event.
