TT West 2019 will be held from Sunday September 8 to Friday September 13, 2019.
This is an Audi Club of North America sanctioned event, so 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
This is a non-profit event. Your registration fee of $105 per person (same for the driver and passenger) gets you a TT West long sleeve polo shirt and admission to all of our stops on the Enchanted Circle drive. All of the other locations we plan to visit are a part of the National Park service and their fees are not included because so many participants have annual passes to these areas. The primary reason registration fees are higher this year is that the cost of the farewell dinner at the Ortiz restaurant in the Santa Fe Hilton is also included in the registration fee. We will have an area to ourselves to have a Happy Hour with chips and dip and then be treated to a buffet of salad, chicken and steak fajitas, desert, coffee and tea. Meal gratuity is also included.
ACNA has promised to donate TT West/ACNA logo baseball hats to all participants. Lodging is not included and is your responsibility.
PLEASE NOTE: Participation for TT West 2019 is limited to 20 TTs and the event typically sells out in two weeks or less.
TT West participants are required to get their TT safety inspected within a month prior to the start of TT West. 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 would 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 get their timing belt replaced 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.
