SPRING WEATHER IN TEXAS is typically…well, atypical. Our version of winter intermittently returns to cast a shadow on spring’s arrival. And so it was on April 5th, winter provided Audi Club Lone Star (ACLS) members the perfect track day. Thirty drivers converged on the Motorsport Ranch (MSR) in Cresson, Texas (not far from Fort Worth) to participate in ACLS’s Spring Track Day. With temperatures staying in the mid- 50s, both naturally-aspirated and turbo engines reveled in the crisp, clean North Texas air.

AS THE EVENT MASTER for the North Bay Teen Driving Clinic in Fairfield, CA, I had been following the weather reports almost hourly over the last couple days not believing that it was in fact actually going to rain. Well I was wrong. Upon arriving at the college, I saw instructors huddled under the large entrance overhang of the Student Services building trying to stay dry. While I had concerns about conducting the clinic in the rain, I had confidence our team would pull it off. As the trailer was unloaded, volunteers set out pastries and coffee provided by Niello Audi just as parents and teens arrived. Paul Jorgensen, Chief Instructor assembled the instructor crew to complete the setup of four exercises which would challenge the teen drivers at the clinic.
