What is it?

  • It's a chance to drive your own car on a race track in a safe, fun, and supportive learning environment.
  • It's a chance to learn more about yourself and your car, and to improve your driving skills.
  • It's a chance to meet and socialize with a diverse group of friendly individuals who embrace performance driving and really enjoy Audi automobiles.  

Driving your own car on a race track, away from side streets and other distractions, is not only great fun, it is the safest and most effective way to explore the capabilities of your car, while improving your driving skills at the same time.

Once you've experienced driving your own car on a race track you will know what the excitement is all about, and you will wonder why you waited so long to JUST DO IT!

Why Audi Club SoCal?

The best venues! This track is one of the safest and most fun tracks in the Southwest. If it is your first or tenth time to an Audi driving event you will have a blast.

Drive your OWN car! During all driving exercises, you will drive your own car. Club instructors will assist you in improving your driving skills, ensuring you get the most out of the experience, all in a safe learning environment.

Don’t have an Audi (yet)? No Problem! All makes and models of coupes and sedans are welcome at Audi Club SoCal driving schools.

We train you! At Audi Club SoCal, we don't just "drop you into the deep end"! Beginners and Novice drivers will spend the morning of the first day learning vehicle dynamics and practicing car control with a combination of classroom and driving skills exercises. After lunch, you will join the more experienced drivers on the track for the remainder of the weekend. Whatever your level of experience, you will benefit from technical sessions tailored to your skill level and discussion sessions with your peers. In-car instruction and classroom sessions are free with every registration.

Safety First! Run groups are established to allow students to be on track with other drivers of similar experience. Beginning students will always have an instructor in the car during on-track driving sessions. This is not a race, so passing is allowed only on designated sections of the course and under controlled conditions. Drivers with documented experience will be placed in a run group appropriate for their demonstrated skill level and their car's capabilities. In-car instruction and coaching is provided at ever level of driver experience.

Registration Fees: The student registration fee of only $545* represents an incredible bargain! The fee includes everything necessary for two days of fun with your car, including

  • Car control exercises for novices
  • On-track instruction, with a trained instructor in your right seat available for every driver
  • Advanced online learning - free for first-timers and discounted for experienced drivers
  • Driving theory classroom sessions at the track for all levels
  • A souvenir event shirt
  • Light supper at Friday evening registration
  • Lunch at the track both days
  • An enjoyable Saturday night banquet dinner with great raffle prizes and an automotive goodies auction. This year's feature auction item is an all-inclusive overnight stay at Inde Motorsport Ranch, an exclusive private motorsports club in Arizona. 
  • NEW! Convertibles - Audi Club North America now allows you to drive many models of convertible cars at our driving school!
  • NEW! SUV/CUV - Audi Club North America now allows you to drive a few models of small SUV/CUV cars at our driving school, such as, Q3, Q5, and SQ5.

  • NEW! Friday Experienced Driver Day - Optional Audi Club SoCal exclusive day on the full course #13 CCW – that's in reverse! Includes lunch and plenty of open track time.
