AUDIWATCH (Tm) QUATTRO CHALLENGE at NEW ENGLAND DRAGWAY
The next (first) AudiWatch (Tm) Quattro Challenge has been scheduled for
April 19th, 95 at New England Dragway in Epping NH.
Wed nights are what they call grudge nights, where spectator street cars
are allowed to use
the 1/4 mi dragstrip and all the professional timing equipment, the same
stuff the pros use, you
even get your own hard-copy timeslips just like the pros. The cost is, I
think, $12-15 for the
entire night, for as may runs as you want and/or as time allows. These
early spring nights
are great cause its not very crowded and the cool evening air helps add
HP, especially for
the turbo cars. You can line up with a buddy/competitor to run against,
or just go with
whatever you happen to be lined up with when you get up to the starting
line. You could be
up against a VW bug or a 3000HP funnycar. Some of the pros use grudge
nights for testing
and tuning, so you often get to see a pretty good show for free. This is
all *VERY* informal
and strictly for fun (or CASH :). Its all about seeing how your car can
the results of tuning & mods and challenging your friends and fellow
Quattro owners to
see how different cars and setups compare.
Your car will be subjected to a brief and simple safety tech, looking for
major leaks, missing
lugnuts and the presence of seatbelts. I don't think you need a helmet
unless you will be running
under 13 seconds ET. We Audi owners likely dont need to worry too much
about that...... :(
The gate opens at 5 pm and racing starts at 6 pm. There is food available
inside. Dont try to
bring in any alcohol as all coolers and boots are checked when you enter
the gate. You *will*
be asked to pop your trunk for inspection, they are serious about safety.
If it rains they will stop the racing, so if it looks real bad
weather-wise, plan on aborting the trip.
Directions: no need to check in with me, just show up!
The track is in Epping NH off Rte. 101. Take Rte 101 East from Rte 93.
