Join us for quattroberfest 2022 our premier High Performance Driver Education (HPDE) event October 7 -9, 2022 at Brainerd International Raceway (BIR) on the Donnybrook Course.

quattroberfest, sponsored by Toyo Tires, offers HPDE instruction for novice, intermediate and advanced driver classes on Saturday and Sunday. Our advanced drivers also have the option of participating in a Lapping Day on Friday.

By popular demand, we are returning to the popular Donnybrook course (long course) [Click here for Road Course Map]. Saturday morning in-car exercises will be hosted in the historical locations which allow participants more repetition and less down time during those segments. We’ve kept the popular lapping day, and will once again have access to garage stalls for those who like that rental option.

(Updated 8-6-22) Unfortunately, our planned Special guest, Randy Pobst, has withdrawn from attending this year due to unforeseen scheduling conflicts. We're in the process of trying to identify whether we can find a replacement at this late date. Stay tuned and we'll share updates when we are able.

Nurtechnik will once again be providing track-side support for participants at quattroberfest! Schedule an appointment at their 7000 square foot facility located in Burnsville to have them complete your required pre-track Safety Inspection ("Tech Check"). Tech Check Form.

We love getting shots of our cars in action on the track! NVUS Images will be on site capturing the action. Put your quattroberfest experience on display by purchasing porfessional photos of your care on the track. We'll introduce photographer Nate at the Driver's Meetings and you'll have the opportunity to purchase photos from the weekend.

Important Notes: ACGL will comply with all ACNA, local, state, and federal requirements for COVID-19 that are in effect at the time the event takes place. Every attendee must pre-register and must sign the electronic event waivers which include ACNA's Communicable Disease/COVID-19 waiver and general release and liability waiver. We will provide additional information about requirements as the event date draws close. Thank you!
