About this event

NEQ 2022 Lime Rock Park Advanced Solo Track Day - Saturday, August 27, 2022

2.5 hours of tracktime!

There is nothing better than an advanced solo day to get some solid track-time to work on your lines. There will be 3x 30 minute sessions and 1 x 60 minute session for each participant at one of our favorite tracks.

The Northeast Chapter of the Audi Club of North America (NEQ) is holding an additional event this year at Lime Rock Park in the beautiful Northwest corner of Connecticut.  We will be sharing track time with the Porsche Club of Metro New York.  This will allow us to have four full track sessions on each day for every run group.  Please join us at LRP for a day of fun and learning on one of New England's most beautiful road courses!

We are pleased to announce that everyone at this event will have the opportunity for 2.5 hours of track-time. That will make for an incredible Lime Rock Park event, and a great return on your $395 registration cost. 

This is a two rungroup event. We're expecting 10-15 drivers in each rungroup. Lots of space on track for everyone. 

10 - 11am - Each rungroup gets one 30-minute session.
12 - 1pm - Each rungroup gets one 30-minute session.
2 - 3 pm - Each rungroup gets one 30-minute session.
4 - 5 pm - 1-hour shared session for all participants

If this describes you, you can run at this event.

  1. Non-solo applicants - Those drivers who have not soloed at NEQ events.
    • Vehicle must be Registered and Street Legal
    • Vehicle must be insured
    • Vehicle must have DOT Street Tires with a tread wear rating of 140
  2. Solo applicants

  4. All convertibles must have permanent roll bars and meet the Broomstick rule described HERE


Tech pre-Inspection

Well in advance of any on-track driving event, you'll need to get your car pre-inspected by a competent mechanic, who will have to provide a completed and signed copy of the Safety Inspection Checklist form (first page only) for you to bring with you to registration. Please get your car inspected at least two weeks before the event to avoid disappointment if the inspection uncovers repairs that must be completed before the car will pass.
