Ice Driving Events
Ice Driving Events are open to the community. All drivers, including members of Audi Club Glacier Lakes (ACGL), members of other chapters of Audi Club North America (ACNA), and non-members, are welcome to participate in this skill enhancing event.
Our goal is simple: Audi Club Glacier Lakes strives to educate, build skills and promote the application of driving techniques on the street that go well beyond what is taught in most drivers’ education courses found in high schools.
We use a very shallow lake in Scott County MN to provide a safe and structured environment for our students. We do NOT hold an event unless the lake has sufficient ice depth to accommodate our event, and we test that depth prior to each event.
The lake will be prepared by snowplow prior to the event to establish our slalom, accident avoidance, skid pad, and road course exercises so that when you arrive at the event we can maximize your learning opportunities.
Modern technology has given us cars with capabilities far beyond these required for relatively safe, everyday driving. Our premise, however, is that you should never be a passenger in the car you are driving. We help you build skills that prepare you to take decisive action (as opposed to panicking or doing nothing) when you experience adverse situations on the road.
