TT West 2021 will be held from Sunday October 10 to Friday October 15, 2021
TT West is a non-profit event. The registration fee of $195 for the driver and $175 for a passenger pays for the Canyon de Chelly tour, a TT West long sleeve polo shirt, and admission to Monument Valley. Most of the other locations we plan to visit are free or a part of the National Park Service whose fees are not included because so many participants have annual passes to these areas. Lodging is not included and is your responsibility. See the Accommodations section of this web site and make your own reservations ASAP because most of the discount rates end June 30, 2021. Please follow the procedures to identify and use the rooms we have had the host hotels reserve for us.
TT West is an Audi Club of North America (ACNA) sanctioned event. The driver must be an ACNA member at the time of registration or the driver must pay an extra $49 in annual dues to join ACNA to participate in this event.
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. You will then receive an email with a total fee due, information to help you select shirt sizes, and ask for your choice of lunch sandwich during the canyon tour.
The registration fee is non-refundable once registration closes. If you notify us that you must cancel, your 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. If you cancel before September 1, 2021, we will refund the $125 per person tour fee.
COVID-19 Vaccinations Are Required of All Participants
Each participant will be required to provide a copy of their vaccination card by September 1, 2021 which provides plenty of time for everyone to get a vaccination. Present Center for Disease Control guidelines allow groups of vaccinated people to interact without masks and social distancing which is crucial to fully enjoying all of the TT West activities. In addition to the vaccination data, ACNA presently requires all participants to sign a new health safety waiver in addition to our usual 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 Mk 1 (2000-2006) TTs. 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. I 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 should also consider replacing their timing belts irrespective of mileage. The Mk 2 TTS has a belt, and 2008 and some 2009 base TTs also have belts. Newer base TTs have a timing chain.
Please use the following form to begin your TT West 2021 registration. Further information will be sent to you within 24 hours after this form has been submitted.
Registration fees are non-refundable once registration closes.
