We are celebrating Portugal’s winning of the EURO 2016 Football Championship (Soccer for us Americans) by holding a tour along some of the top three Portuguese heritage cities in the United States. Along the route, we’ll pass by the remnants of Newport’s US Naval presence and related honky-tonk, and the opulent Newport mansions, built just prior to the enactment of the federal income tax in 1914. Then we’ll return to serenity and visit scenic New England harbors and shorelines, such as Sakonnet harbor and Acoaxet in Westport. As an added treat, we’ll pass by Carolyn’s Sakonnet Vineyard and Westport River Vineyards & Wineries, two highly regarded and award-winning local wineries, and stop at one for a tour and tasting. The tour will conclude at a restaurant in the port city of New Bedford, the long-standing number-one fishing port in the United States, to sample the fresh seafood (and other dishes, for those who have not yet learned to love seafood).

The North Atlantic Audi Club is again partnering with Northeast Track Days (NTD) to provide High Performance Driver Education schools in 2016. These schools will be held at three premier road courses in the local area: Thompson Motor Speedway; Palmer Motorsport Park; and New Hampshire Motor Speedway. All schools will be one day events, focused on safe, fun and affordable track time for all levels of driving enthusiast.
NAAC will be providing the classroom talks and instructors to support NTD’s third year of track days. Run groups are small so that drivers will get 4 sessions on the track, (approx. 2 hours per day), several classroom sessions focusing on high performance driving techniques, and novice drivers will receive one-on-one coaching with an in-car instructor.
Events are planned for April 26, July 13, August 9 and October 18 at Palmer Motorsport park, June 22 at Thompson, CT and September 15 at NHMS in Loudon, NH.
