Coastal Tour Recap

Here in the Carolinas Chapter, we love our mountains and curvy roads (especially in the fall!), but we decided it was time to explore our Coastline. On March 25th, we gathered as a group of 29 cars with 67 attendees to explore the beautiful Outer Banks. We welcomed not only Carolina members, but also members from…

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

June’s Member of the Month:

Shaun Ackerman

I was born in Nebraska but raised in Missouri. I grew up with Mark Twain National forest in my back yard and would often find myself miles away from home exploring. I joined the Army at 17 and bounced around a few places before settling into the highlight of my career here at Fort Bragg. I have had a long and often exciting career of 26 years but I have recently retired and am moving on to new things. I met my wife Kelly during my last years in the military and we have been together for 7 great years. We are constantly on the go and always up for an adventure. She loves to surf, ski, go hiking, play the piano and violin, kind of a jack of all trades while I just ride motorcycles and used to skydive and tandem skydive for my adrenaline rush.

Audi Club Lazoom Comedy Bus Tour

July 2nd, 2022 1:00 PM

76 Biltmore Ave, Asheville, NC

Facebook event link:

Let’s all have some fun together and take the Lazoom Comedy bus tour together. Book the Hey Asheville: City Comedy Tour with this link. Make sure to purchase the July 2 at 1pm. Book early! Here is the link to buy tickets
LaZoom Tours is owned and operated locally by founders Jim and Jen Lauzon, who were just a pair of crazy-in-love street performers until they found their first bus, colored it purple and pursued their wacky dream. At first, it was just Jim and Jen (and a driver), writing the scripts and playing all the roles.
Now in its 16th year of operation, LaZoom has grown to encompass three buses, four drivers, one director, eight on- and off-bus guides, and more nuns than you can shake a ruler at! But LaZoom is still Jim and Jen’s baby, and we’re all family here. Get on the bus and experience the fun for yourself!
