Apr242021 - Apr252021
Welcome to the Audi Club’s annual High Performance Driver’s Clinic (HPDC) and NEW Sunday High-Performance Driving Event (HPDE)! Both the HPDC and HPDE will be held on Summit Point’s Jefferson Circuit and should be lots of fun! You don’t need to own an Audi to drive with us.
The event is focused on beginners/novice student participants who are starting to get engaged in track events or those who want to improve their driving skills for the daily commute.
This annual PCC-ACNA clinic is an instructional event tailored to the needs of members with no previous driving experience beyond the “normal” daily commute and driver’s ed classes. The clinic provides a safe controlled environment to learn and practice advanced defensive driving techniques and car control through a combination of classroom and on-track exercises.
For anyone who wishes to enhance their driving knowledge and enjoy a safer road experience through improved skills, confidence and understanding, this event is designed for that purpose. It provides the ideal start for those who may want to progress and participate in our two-day Drivers’ Education (DE) events. ABSOLUTELY NO PRIOR EXPERIENCE REQUIRED and there will be plenty of patient instructors to help guide you through the day.
Over the past fifteen plus years, we have developed an outstanding program that puts beginners and novices at ease and offers valuable instruction even for those who have recently started doing Drivers’ Education events. The morning is classroom and car-control exercises including a wet skidpad, braking, and slalom. The afternoon finishes off the event by applying what was learned in the morning with on-track driving.
This event is open to all run groups/skill levels (5-Green, 4-Yellow, 3-Blue, 2-Black, 1-Red) and includes classroom sessions for most non-advanced run groups. We aim to have four run sessions per group with a lot of track time, top-notch instructors, and an abundance of fun!
This event is an instructed event, however, due to COVID-19, the Sunday (HPDE) portion of this event will have both in-car and lead-follow instruction options will be available upon request. In-car instruction is currently mandatory for the Saturday (Driver’s Clinic) portion of the event.
