Audi Club Florida Newsletter July 2021

The Emerald Coast Region continues car-focused activities throughout the region. The Platinum Coast continues to have events in the Naples, Sarasota, and Fort Myers area. The Gulf Coast continues to meet at Reeves Motorsports on the first Saturday of the month. The Gold Coast is restarting Cars and Coffee at the Miami International Mall on Sunday July 11th and the First Coast is hosting Caffeine and Octane ant the Avenues Mall July 10th.  See the regional sections for more details.


FixxFest will be happening this year.

When – Nov 20th, 2021

Where – Florida International Rally & Motorsport Park (The FIRM) Starke, FL.

It is the same great event, but with an exciting new location. Many of you are aware of the location. UroTuning is hoping to draw even more show competition from neighboring states; as well people who want have fun at the track. More details will be given as they are “firmed up”.

Our priority is keeping you safe when participating in events representing or promoting the club. Audi Club Florida is not willing to put anyone at risk. While welcomed to these venues, remember we are guests of the establishment or promoter and respect the rules. ACFL recommends obeying the most up to date guidelines and orders issued by the regions and governor concerning events.

ACFL still suggests using an antibacterial wipe, a disposable protective glove, a plastic t-shirt bag, or a dog poop bag as a barrier while using the fuel pumps to avoid potential exposure and dispose of it after fueling. Be careful out there and protect your health. #FlattenTheCurve

ACNA Vehicle Purchase Discount Certificates

For those of you planning to buy or lease a new Audi and utilizing the ACNA Member discount, contact the front office at (262) 567-5476 as soon as you plan to shop.  The certificates expire at the end of the month issued, so should negotiations lapse into the next month, you will need to request a new one to take advantage of the savings.

We are trying to expand regional coverage but need your help!

Audi Club Florida has the most active regions of any chapter in the Audi Club North America. As we continue this year, we are currently looking for leadership in the following area: Gator Region – Gainesville Area

Thomas Brinkmann, the General Manager, of Audi Gainesville is ready to work with a representative to establish the region. If you are up to the challenge, let me know

Many people have emailed me personally and through the national office to find out why there is not something in their area. I tell them assistance is required to help get things going locally. We desire to unite the state and have events within an hour’s drive of your location, at least quarterly. We are looking for some people who have the ambition to lead and desire to start something long term, helping arrange places to meet for lunch, activities, attend local car shows and coffee events, and other social activities. If you would like to volunteer and help organize a successful regional club, please contact me for details, and we will discuss making it happen. If you want to get active to help your region with ideas and help assist with and organize events, the regional leadership and I would love to have your help. This club is for you, so help us make it work for you.

During this period of high interest and demand for specific Audi RS performance models and their iterations, unfortunately, some of our members have experienced “Packs” and “Market Adjustments” added to the MSRP by their local dealerships.

Audi Clearwater has always maintained a policy of not implementing such pricing policies and practices for ACNA/ACFL members.

Many of you are not taking advantage of Audi Clearwater’s offering of a 15% discount to all readers of this newsletter on Parts and Service for your Audis.

It is all that simple to start saving money on needed parts and service.

Audi Clearwater is located at 18940 US Highway 19 N; Clearwater FL. 33764, their main numbers is 727 312 1220 and ask for Mandy Walter to schedule your service. Tell her the ACFL newsletter has sent you.

Tropical Storm Claudette put a damper on our region in June and canceled almost all the car events we had on the books. Despite all the rain, we rallied with Audi Pensacola for a great turnout to Pensacola’s C&C on the last weekend of June. Audi Pensacola’s continued support is appreciated and we are very much looking forward to being able to host events again at the dealership in the fall! Stay tuned!

Our @emeraldcoastaudiclub Instagram page keeps going strong! We appreciate Jeremy Chavez’s contributions and help. We’ve both been really busy but hope to have more content coming soon. Appreciate all the other Audi Club Groups that have continued to tag and support us! If anyone in our region is interested in becoming a part of ECR’s IG group please reach out to me.

Lastly, we finally have some interest to get the Tallahassee area active! I’ll be planning a trip over there soon. I’ll post it in our Facebook group as soon as the details are worked out. Hopefully, we can bring a crew of our AudiFam to welcome our new enthusiasts.

Platinum Coast Region (Sarasota to Naples)

The Platinum Coast Audi Club has taken a summer hiatus since most of our members have taken the opportunity to exercise their rings to visit family and friends in northern and western states that have opened up for visitors.  Since many of our families have been separated with all of the Covid restrictions, we are thankful that we can take an old fashion road trip once again—hopefully finding affordable gas along the way (or charging stations in convenient locations).

We are looking forward to getting back up and running again in August.  We plan to rendezvous at the Edison-Ford estates in Ft. Myers, Florida, on Saturday, August 21st.  We will tour the campus and the antique Ford vehicles housed on the estate.  Of course, we will follow up with a mystery ride to lunch in the area guided by odometer readings to our lunch spot.  If you are reading this and you are living in our Bradenton to Marco Island area, please mark your calendar for August 21st and come join us.
