Rings on the Blue Ridge/Parkway Cruise & Winery Meet

OCTOBER 16, 2021 AT 9 AM EDT – 2 PM

Audi Club Carolinas, invites you to mark your calendars for this event. I’ve rescheduled this event to the Fall of 2021. The winery has just recently re-opened, but the restaurant remains closed, due to COVID19 fallout. Cooler weather, leaves, Fall scenery, etc make October more appealing. Great turnout last time with awesome weather, twisty roads, amazing scenery, fantastic Audis, the majestic winery, and hardcore enthusiasts. We will meet up initially around 9AM at:


1996 Rockford St.  Mt Airy, NC

From here, we’ll cruise up to the Blue Ridge Parkway just inside Virginia, for over 30 miles of scenic twists and turns. This time we’ll be adding more to the route, to increase the fun factor! Our Audis will travel the distance until we reach Chateau Morrisette Winery, where we will congregate and have an opportunity for an optional lunch and wine tasting. Stroll the amazing grounds and enjoy the majestic mountain views while there, and of course meet other enthusiasts and their magnificent cars. If you can’t make the run on the Parkway, and just want to meet at the winery, that is welcomed as well. Anyone driving in the Audi grouping cruise, will need to sign a waiver. More details forthcoming…We look forward to seeing you there!

Audi Club Carolina Dyno Day

OCTOBER 16, 2021 AT 10 AM EDT – 3 PM EDT

297 Garlington Rd Suite D, Greenville, SC

Come and join us as we will be using SD Racing’s AWD Chassis Dyno. If you have always wanted to know your power numbers here is your chance!
