Registration will open in January 2023
TT West is an Audi Club of North America (ACNA) sanctioned event. The driver must be an ACNA member at the time of registration. When your registration request is received, ACNA will be contacted to verify your membership. If you are not a member, $49 will be added to the driver’s registration fees to enroll you in ACNA for one year.
The registration fee is non-refundable once registration closes. If you notify us that you must cancel after registration closes, your TT West shirts will be mailed to you if you wish. If you do not cancel and do not show up, you will not get the shirts.
ACNA presently requires all participants to sign a COVID health safety waiver and a participation liability waiver at the start of the event.
TT West participants are also required to get their TT safety inspected within a month prior to the start of TT West. An inspection form will be provided to you. The items covered in the inspection are the same that most dealers and independent garages perform for free when you have work done on your TT. Most Audi dealerships will perform this inspection for free if you tell them it is for an ACNA event. You may also get it done by your favorite mechanic. While most of us take good care of our TTs and work on the cars ourselves, it is always good to get a fresh set of eyes on your TT. Therefore, having the inspection done by someone other than yourself is strongly recommended. However, you may perform the inspection yourself.
A note to owners of TTs with timing belts. Be aware that the 100K mile replacement stated in the owner’s manual for the timing belt in the Mk 1 1.8L engine is generally considered to be wrong. The generally accepted replacement interval is about 5 years or 60K miles. While it is easy to check the belt itself, the primary failures are the water pump and belt tensioner which cannot be inspected. We mention this because a timing belt failure during TT West will be catastrophic, disabling your car in the middle of nowhere, and causing $5K+ damage to your engine.
Similarly, owners of 10+ year old Mk 2 TTs with a timing belt should also consider replacing their timing belts irrespective of mileage. The Mk 2 TTS has a belt, as well as 2008 and some 2009 Mk 2 base TTs. Newer Mk 2 base TTs have a timing chain.
