Quattrofest has been a fixture at PIR and our signature event for many years. The track has two miles of asphalt for everyone to enjoy. It features twelve turns that will include the famous "Festival Curves" for this event.
Easy to learn but challenging to perfect, PIR has a storied history. It has hosted many huge events including CART, IMSA, Trans Am, ALMS, NASCAR, and other national racing series. Tailor-made for driving schools, the facility has enough room to simultaneously run lapping sessions and skills exercises. This physical arrangement also allows Quattrofest to hold an autocross on both Saturday and Sunday.
Saturday the driving event proper starts with our Drivers Education program for novice drivers and lapping for experienced drivers. Learning to be better drivers is what Audi Club Northwest is all about. For information and an overview about our driving schools, please click on our ACNA Driving School website page.
Drivers Education students will then get to participate in the afternoon autocross or lapping.
Saturday evening: Plan on a terrific dinner banquet at the Red Lion Hotel on the Columbia River, with good company, good food, and an entertaining experience for Audi enthusiasts. We are pleased to welcome Ross Bentley as guest speaker at our banquet.
Sunday: You go back to the track and continue with either lapping or autocross.
