Quattro de Seca 2016: For Intermediate and Advanced Drivers at Mazda Raceway, Laguna Seca (92dB sound limit)

Welcome to the registration for "Quattro de Seca 2016". This ONE-day High Performance Driving Event (HPDE) will be held April 7th at Mazda Raceway, Laguna Seca covering the 2.238 miles of a challenging track with 11 turns and the famous 5-1/2 story drop between turns 8 & 9 known as the Corkscrew. This event is subject to a 92dB sound limit.

What is "Quattro de Seca 2016"?

Golden Gate Chapter returns to one of the most iconic of racetracks: Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca (MRLS) near Monterey CA.  The 2016 Quattro de Seca event is for intermediate and advanced drivers.  Since there will be no formal, pre-organized instruction all participants must be deemed safe to drive "solo" at MRLS.  For solo drivers who have not driven MRLS, demonstration laps with Golden Gate Chapter instructors may be arranged on an informal basis.   Please review the detailed requirements as part of the registration process.  

MRLS provides a special and unique location to learn about your car and yourself and also to raise your driving skills and awareness in an environment that is fun and safe. You will also be able to meet and socialize with a diverse group of Audi Club enthusiasts who drive many different brands of cars, so don't hesitate to join us if your chosen vehicle is not an Audi.  

MRLS will impose a sound limit of 92dB for this event (note that most MRLS track days are limited to 90dB).
