Join the NJ Chapter for the inaugural season at NJ Motorsports Park in Millville, NJ. This is a two day driving school and safety seminar.

The event will be run on the signature Thunderbolt Raceway, featuring over 2.25 miles of asphalt, 14 challenging turns, a one half mile straightway and approximately 40 acres of full service paddock space.

One of the goals upon which the Audi Club North America was founded was the idea that driving skills can and should be improved with practice in a controlled environment. After all, how better to enjoy your car than to be confident that you really know how it will react in all situations? This event will be held at a racetrack due to ample space, no oncoming traffic, plenty of runoff room, and workers before each corner with flags to warn drivers of any upcoming danger. Despite being at a racetrack, the event is not competitive, is not timed, and most certainly is not racing.

Lessons and skills learned at these events really do transfer to everyday driving, as numerous former students attest to all the time. Many prior students report avoiding accidents thanks to things they learned at these events. Many others report simply enjoying their daily commute more knowing more about themselves and their cars. There really is no better way to improve your skills.
What you will learn at a performance driving school:

  • How to handle your car in a emergency situation
  • Understanding of braking dynamics
  • Increased confidence in the performance characteristics of your vehicle

Beginners will focus on classroom time and exercises prior to on-track lapping with an instructor in the car at all times. More experienced students will focus more on track learning, however every participant will be required to attend classroom sessions.

This is not a racing school, nor is it a competitive event. 

Save $50! - Register prior to 9/6 to receive the discounted rate of $375 per student.

Students are required to be ACNA members to register.

Note: While the event organizers will make every effort to maximize track time, due to the possible track conditions and weather the number of sessions and session length can not be guaranteed.
