The Northeast Chapter of the Audi Club NA (NEQ) is holding its annual event at Lime Rock Park in the beautiful Northwest corner of Connecticut on May 12-13, 2017.  Again this year we will be sharing track time with the Lime Rock Club.  To insure that all participants get the same track time as at previous LRP events, we are limiting the number of students in each run group.  This will allow us to have four full track sessions on each day for every run group.  Please join us at LRP for two full days of fun and learning on one of New England's most beautiful road courses! The fee for this event is $600.00, as it was in 2016.

Due to the configuration of this event, two novice or inexperienced students will not be allowed to share a car. Contact the Eventmaster for further details.

CancellationPolicy(revised 1/21/17): 

   - No penalty up to 30 days before the event
   - $100 from 29 days to 11 days before the event
   - No refund within 10 days of the event    

Noise restrictions at Lime Rock this year.  86 DB max  

You will be given a chance, maybe 2, to modify your car if you are black flagged for a noise violation.

 There will be no refund for any car that violates the noise restriction and is sent home.

No M (motorcycle) helmets will be allowed.


We will have a banquet at the beautiful White Hart Inn.  The menu and atmosphere will be well worth the $50 banquet fee.  It is a great way to meet and spend time with your fellow members and friends.  Last year was our 1st banquet at the White Hart Inn and it was a Huge success with the best food ever experienced at an NEQ banquet.

The NEQ Club offers great driver's schools that focus on safety and training and are a great place to start to learn high performance driving.

Who we are and what we do:

The Northeast Chapter of the Audi Club of North America, or "NEQ" for short, is a non-profit organization which was founded for the purpose of driver education and safety training. To that end, the club runs approximately 6 events at motorsport facilities around the Northeast, including Lime Rock Park, New Jersey Motorsports, Watkins Glen International, and Palmer Motorsports Park. Our events teach safe driving techniques and both low and high speed vehicle handling. In addition, the club usually runs Winter Driving Schools, social events which can include Fun Runs, NYC holiday party and other social gatherings. When you join the Audi Club of North America, if you reside in the NEQ chapter area, you are automatically put on our mailing list, which means you should receive an election ballot towards the end of the year. If you do not, please contact the ACNA's office and confirm your mailing address is correct.


In an effort to keep our members informed of upcoming NEQ events we have established an e-mail notification process. Please make sure Nationals has your e-mail address.

Membership Requirements:

To participate in this event you must be a member of Audi Club North America (ACNA).  To join ACNA and receive your membership number please go to

 Once you have this number you will be able to register for all future NEQ events. 


Vehicle Requirements


The newer generation of driver's school applicants often bring vehicles whose performance is beyond their driving ability. Because of this the NEQ Board of Directors passed the following resolution which requires the vehicle to more closely match the driver's ability.

  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
    • Vehicle must be Registered and Street Legal
    • Vehicle must be insured
    • Vehicle must have DOT legal tires
  3. Instructors
    • Any tires acceptable
  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.

A helmet with a SNELL SA05 SA10 or SA15 rating are the only helmets that may be used.  

No M rated (motorcycle) helmets will be allowed.
