Buzzed Viking Brewery event recap: 

The Audi Club Carolinas met on a sunny January Sunday at Buzzed Viking Brewery in Concord, NC to support Veterans Bridge Home and Fiveby Wheels. With over 50 vehicles that attended, folks were able to have lunch, drink beer and debate their car’s attributes together.

For this inaugural Queen City Quattros event of 2022, the club was able to raise $2,000 for the local organization Veterans Bridge Home which works to connect Veterans and their families, in any state of transition, to the community.

New Audi Club sweepstakes for spring 2022!

Audi Club is offering our most iconic prize ever. The Audi quattro Coupé, also known as “ur quattro” (German for “original quattro”) is the car that started it all, launching the Audi brand’s long history with all-wheel drive and asserting the four rings as a rallying legend. This 1985 specimen painted Zermatt Silver Metallic was originally built to U.S. specification, making it the penultimate evolution of the ur quattro sold in the United States. This particular car has been professionally augmented even further, with 20-valve AAN-code 5-cylinder engine built to produce over 300 hp, sport shocks and springs, Porsche brakes, RECARO seats and more. These components combine to make this quattro true to original form, yet a more capable and reliable for ultimate driving enjoyment.

More details and history of the car to come. Click the Sweepstakes Updates link below for the latest on this remarkable car.

They created frshslabs since they were both tired of single use air fresheners that didn’t match the style of their cars. Turns out they weren’t alone and more of their fellow car enthusiasts shared this same problem.

Mark your calendars folks! This is a special Quattro’s & Brews to benefit one of our own members. Billy Curtis’ daughter Kiya is working very hard to kick cancer’s butt! She is currently undergoing the stem cell transplant process in Winston Salem (away from home). We would like to help make this time a bit more comfortable for them by creating an awesome gift basket full of things they might need (gas cards, restaurant cards, grocery cards) and want (Kiya loves playing animal crossing on Nintendo Switch and I’m sure she wouldn’t mind other things to help pamper herself, like items from bath and body works either.) If you are unable to join us and would like to help put a smile on Kiya’s face, email me, Tara Johnson and I will give you details. Let’s all show some love for one of our Audi family members and make this the best Quattro’s & Brews to date! And don’t forget there will be tasty beer and food at Mills River Brewing to enjoy while we are at it!

Join the Audi Club Carolinas with our tour of the North Carolina coast and visit some of the beautiful sites and beaches. We are fortunate enough in the Carolinas to have both mountains and beaches. This is our first tour of the coast, and like our Audi Treffen event in the fall we are hoping to make this a yearly thing. This event will be different from our fall tour as this event is aimed to stop and take in the sites. This event is family friendly so bring the kids!
The 2022 Carolinas Coastal Tour sponsors are Audi Charlotte, Audi Greensboro, Dynamic Auto Tune, GMP Performance, and RennWerx.

Audi Club Carolinas would not be possible without the support of our sponsors.  Please check out the link below for our list of sponsors:
