DC Metro Audi Driving Experience, Summit Pt - Aug 7-10 Sign up Open

Here we go again

Audi Driving Experience

Dates Aug 7 - Aug 10

Summit Point, WV

http://audidrivingexperience.com/

2 parts, 2 hr experience with TT, A4 and Q7 and optional $595 1/2 day driving experience starring RS4 and R8

Excerpt:


Quote:
Drivers drive a variety of Audi vehicles including the TT, all-new 2009 A4, and Q7 on a number of tracks designed to improve your fundamental driving skills. These tracks include braking, skid control, handling and accident avoidance. Once these fundamentals are established, drivers will lap the road course at the speedway. The most improved driver will get a ride in the R8 on the racetrack.

-Improved understanding of vehicle handling
-Improved braking and accident avoidance techniques
-Learning where to look in an emergency situation
-Controlling a skid
-Understanding quattro and why it gives Audi a handling advantage
-Understanding vehicle capabilities and limits


I've signed up for August 10 (Sunday) 09:30 seating - 2 hour exprience. Still debating on the optional part.

We can all sign up and convoy, as we normally do.




edit: Signed up for August 10, 13:30 seating - 2 hour Experience

What you lazy bums

Ok I think I'll go change to 13:30 as well. We have to be there 45 minutes before the start. So 09:30 is really pushing it
