Welcome to the SoCal Audi Club's High Performance Safety Driving School at Buttonwillow Raceway Park, Buttonwillow, California.

What is it?

  • It's a chance to drive your own car in a fun, safe, and supportive learning environment.
  • It's a chance to learn more about yourself and your car, and to enhance 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 without side streets and other distractions is not only wonderful fun, it is the safest and most effective way to explore the capabilities of your car and its driver while learning advanced driving techniques.

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?

The best venues! Buttonwillow Raceway Park 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 students will drive their own cars, and will have a club instructor assisting in developing better driving skills. This provides helpful input to ensure you get the most out of the experience, all in a safe learning environment.

All makes and models of coupes and sedans are welcome at SoCal Audi Club driving schools.

We train you! At Audi Club we don't just "drop you into the deep end"! Beginning 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, and will then join the more experienced drivers on the track for the remainder of the weekend. Whatever your level of experience, you will benefit from classroom sessions tailored to your skill level. In-car instruction and classroom seminars are included for 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 circumstances. 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 all levels of driver experience.

Registration Fees: The student registration fee of only $525 represents an incredible bargain. It includes everything necessary for two days of fun, including:

  • On-track instruction with a trained instructor in your right seat available for every driver
  • NEW! Advanced online training - free for first-timers and discounted for experienced drivers
  • Driving theory sessions at the track for all levels
  • Car control exercises for novices
  • A souvenir event shirt
  • Lunch at the track both days
  • An enjoyable Saturday night dinner with raffle prizes and an automotive goodies auction

Headquarters Hotel:
The headquarters hotel for the event is the Best Western Plus Wasco Inn & Suites.

Celebrity Guest:
Well known professional racer Patrick Lindsey will again be our special Celebrity Guest at Buttonwillow. Our advanced drivers may select optional in-car instruction with Patrick. A few lucky individuals may even get a chance to experience a lap riding in a race car with Patrick!
