Founded in 1984, the Glacier Lakes Chapter was the home of Frank Beddor and is the charter member of the Audi Club of North America. Today, the chapter is comprised of more than 280 members in Minnesota and North Dakota. The High Performance Driver’s Education events are held at Brainerd International Raceway (BIR) and our popular Teen Car Control Clinics take place at Dakota County Technical College (DCTC). Winter finds us practicing our ice driving skills on Cynthia Lake south of the twin cities. In addition to on-track experiences, the chapter offers its members scenic driving tours in the region, technical learning opportunities, picnics, and other social gatherings designed to engage spouses and families in all things Audi.
ACGL has a great team of instructors who have a passion for driving and coaching young and old drivers alike how to become better, safer drivers. They work with students in our Teen Car Control Clinics, Ice Driving Events and at our HPDE events to build confidence and driving skills. Like all of the dedicated individuals who give generously to ACGL, all instructors are volunteers and we are SO grateful for them. Our Instructor Development curriculum built and refined over the years is being submitted to the Motorsports Safety Foundation for accreditation. Once established ACGL will be a nationally certified provider of “Level 2” instructor development!
