AS EXPERIENCED DRIVERS, there are so many things we automatically do when driving a car. However, unless you have recently instructed a teen driver of your own on how to drive, it’s hard to remember how clueless we all were when we started driving. On a hot Saturday at the end of July in Northern Virginia, the Audi Club Potomac Chesapeake Chapter (PCC) ran its first teen driving school in recent history to help educate our newest drivers.
Come join us on the Fifth Annual North Atlantic Audi Club's "Over Hill and Dale" Tour and Fall Rally on Saturday, October 11th for an afternoon of driving, exploring, and camaraderie with fellow participants on a fun drive through southern New Hampshire as we take in some of the fall foliage, small town centers with country stores and local fall "Attractions".
ONCE AGAIN, THE NJ CHAPTER of ACNA held a successful and first class HPDE at Pocono Raceway in Long Pond, PA.

ACNA-NJ CHAPTER HELD ANOTHER High Performance Driver Education event at Pocono Raceway in Long Pond, PA. This event in particular was very unique—it was one of the only “twilight” events held in the Northeast. Night events are popular in the south due to the hotter temperatures during the day. Many cars benefit from the cooler night time temperatures, running under more optimal conditions in a less stressful environment.

Are you itching to get back on the track for the 2014 season? Have you had enough of the seemingly long off-season? Enough of snow drifts, and ice driving?!?!? Is it time to dust off the cobwebs? Are you an active ACNA member or just an Audi enthusiast and been hearing about these "driving events" that members are talking about? Have you read in the Quattro Quarterly or other literature about these High Performance Driving Events (HPDEs)? How about wanting to enjoy your Audi more and learning to drive it in a safer, more controlled manner on a closed course with an instructor?
