Audi Club Carolinas Newsletter : March 2022

Carolina News:

Track season news: 

We are ready for registrations for June 23rd date at Carolinas Motorsport Park in Kershaw, SC!

This will be an exclusive track day for Audi Club members, and will consist of 3, 20 minute sessions on the 2.27 mile, 14 turn, road course. We will have GMP Performance on-site to help with any tech issues, and we are partnering with SCCA to ensure that the event is well run and safe for all participants. Never been on track before?! NO PROBLEM! Our Novice Group will consist of paced laps before your hot-laps to ensure you know your way around, and there will be SCCA coaches on-hand to provide track-side coaching and support should you have any questions at all.

So – How much is this exactly? I’m glad you asked! For the low price of 175.00, you get on track for the HPDE/At-speed sessions. Not *quite* ready to commit to that? Shortly after lunch, we’ll be doing “Parade Laps” (no helmet, highway speeds, behind a pace car) for FREE! For anybody that thinks highway speeds are boring, my car can only take turn 1 at CMP at around 45mph… so it can still be a lot of fun.

Click here to register for CMP on June 23rd

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.
