Audi Club Northwest with Audi Seattle presents “University of Quattro” Driver Skills and Autocross at the Monroe Fairgrounds/Evergreen Speedway on Sunday, February 23, 2020!
Do you have a new car and want to learn what driving it feels like in challenging course design? Or have you ever really learned how to drive the one you have?
University of Quattro is a place to push the envelope of your vehicle’s capabilities in a controlled environment with fantastic club instructors to work with you on becoming a better driver. This program has something for 16 year old drivers just starting their road experience, or the 50 year old that has always wondered if they really do know everything there is to know about driving.
Audi Club Northwest is here to provide training for YOU, the most important aspect of your car making it home safely every night. The University of Quattro program also qualifies you to attend other instructed lapping events later this year, such as Son of QuattroFest on March 24th.
Sunday morning starts with our Driver Skills (DS) program which consists of a short chalk talk session where we discuss vehicle dynamics and how you can maximize your skills and minimize the chances of being involved in a collision. This talk is an important part of becoming a more polished driver.
Next, Audi Club Northwest instructors will put you through a group of exercises designed to teach new skills and expand on old ones in a controlled but exhilarating way. This is great fun.
Once our instructors feel you have learned what is needed in the exercises we will transition the pavement into an autocross. An autocross is a small course designed to test your new skills, and since it is timed you will be able to see your improvement as an instructor works with you on the strategies to better your next run through the course. This is where the fun REALLY begins. Expect to go home with sore cheeks as your smiling muscles will be the most tested of all.
Teen drivers and parents are encouraged to take this course and have the same experiences and language to use in later conversations. You may share one car, but parent and teen must register as separate participants. This will be an all-day class and it will be the best focused time each of you has spent on driving skills. A parent or guardian needs to be onsite during the day with drivers under 18 years old.
The program is focused on driver skill development and learning about how you and your car work together for a safer experience on the streets and freeways. A coach will be with you in the right seat of your car to personalize the whole event.
Adult drivers and teen drivers may choose from the following event options:
• Driver Skills and Autocross with lunch, Adult.
• Driver Skills and Autocross with lunch, Teen.
An Audi car is not required for any portion of University of Quattro so feel free to invite friends and co-workers to this event. Audi Club North America membership is not required (although it is encouraged) for either the Driver Skills exercises or autocross.
