What is "Quattro de Seca 2018"?
Golden Gate Chapter returns to one of the most iconic of racetracks: Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca (MRLS) near Monterey CA. The 2018 Quattro de Seca event is for intermediate and advanced drivers. Since there will be no formal, pre-organized instruction all participants must be deemed safe to drive "solo" at MRLS. For solo drivers who have not driven MRLS, demonstration laps with Golden Gate Chapter instructors may be arranged on an informal basis. Please review the detailed requirements as part of the registration process.
MRLS provides a special and unique location to learn about your car and yourself and also to raise your driving skills and awareness in an environment that is fun and safe. You will also be able to meet and socialize with a diverse group of Audi Club enthusiasts who drive many different brands of cars, so don't hesitate to join us if your chosen vehicle is not an Audi.
MRLS will impose a sound limit of 92dB for this event. YOU ARE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR INSURING THAT YOUR VEHICLE DOES NOT EXCEED THE SOUND LIMIT.
At Quattro de Seca 2018 we are focusing on maximizing on-track time for intermediate and advanced drivers. You can expect to benefit from at least five 20+ minute on-track sessions during the day.
Driver Qualification Requirements
Due to the one-day nature of this event we will not be accepting First-Timer or Novice drivers. For the safety of all, registrants must fulfill one or more of the following criteria:
- have solo'd at a previous Audi Club Golden Gate Chapter event at MRLS
- have solo'd at previous Audi Club events on at least two other tracks (subject to pre-approval from Chief Instructor)
- have solo'd at MRLS at a previous event with another driving club (subject to verification by Chief Instructor)
If you are unsure about your status or wish to obtain pre-approval, please contact the club's Chief Instructor, Gregg Franklin.
Drivers will be aggregated into Run Groups which will be established to allow them to be on track with other drivers of similar experience. Limited demonstration laps or coaching with Golden Gate Chapter instructors may be available (but not guaranteed) for drivers who so wish. Please inform the event master (Mayur Bhatia) as soon as possible if you would like demo laps or coaching.
