Audi Club Northeast is excited to offer a Winter Car Control Clinic at Lime Rock Park Race Track

Whether there is snow, or simply cold weather conditions, this event is a must for anyone looking to learn how to handle their car on the limit or in a low grip environment.

Audi Club Northeast is excited to offer our second event at Lime Rock Park Race Track on Saturday March 9, 2024

Learn new or enhance your car control skills on the FCP Euro Proving Grounds.  Here, with our instructors, we will do traditional car control exercises and low speed lapping. You will experience the nuances of weight transfer, advanced braking techniques while gaining increased confidence behind the wheel.

Should Mother Nature grace us with snow, our versatile volunteers and instructors will turn on the low friction switch in their brains and we will have an awesome winter school!

The cost for each student attendee is $290. We will allow a limited number of guests for observation and ride-a-longs.

In order to maximize the experience for all attendees, attendance is limited to 36 students plus instructors.  There will be a waitlist in case of cancelations. If early response is far greater than the maximum number of students, we MAY run a lottery will determine the roster for the day.

This one-day event begins at an 9:00 AM with registration, a brief driver’s meeting and classroom session. Following the classroom, driving begins with in car instruction, roughy from 10:00 AM – 4:00PM

The exercises are designed so drivers can feel the effects of vehicle dynamics as they negotiate the cones in the slalom and skid pad, learning to correct understeer and oversteer in low friction conditions. The low speed autocross course will give drivers the opportunity to put their newly learned skills to good use as they wind their way around the twists and turns on the versatile course.

NEQ’s Winter School Program is not just for hot-shoe track junkies but for their teenage children and spouses and anyone who wants to improve their low friction driving abilities. The entry fee provides an opportunity to hone your winter driving skills in a safe and supportive environment with skilled instructors. The fun and camaraderie…priceless!

Participants must have a car which is in good condition and fitted with NON-STUDDED snow or all-season tires. Consider the conditions as the event nears for which tires you want to use. (Note to veterans of NEQ WDS’s this is a departure of our lake based events where we allow studs and discourage all season tires) We welcome all vehicle brands as well as pickup trucks and SUVs. Participants must have a valid driver’s license or learner’s permit.  All participants (and those accompanying them) should be warmly dressed, with good boots, a warm hat and gloves. The driving portion of this event runs from 10:00AM to 4:00PM.

Come and join NEQ at this exciting venue!
