Words: Barrett Lanier     Pictures: Ryan Keating @mr_mushnik

Despite the wet and rainy start, the 1st Annual Autobahn Icons Concours d’Elegance and German Car Show benefitting the Special Olympics Texas was a huge success! The Autobahn Icons Concours d’Elegance celebrates German engineering at its finest, representing cars from the 1930’s all the way to today’s most advanced vehicles. The show took place on October 6, 2018 at Treaty Oak Distillery in Dripping Springs just outside of Austin, and consisted of a judged and non-judged class. All proceeds from the show and silent action are to be donated to Special Olympics Texas.

The event was made possible by the partnering of the Audi Club Lone Star chapter, the Lone Star Section of the Mercedes-Benz Club of America, the Tejas Chapter of the BMW Car Club of America, and the Hill Country Chapter of Porsche Club of America.

Congratulations to our own Lynn Kipfer (MK1 TT), Josh Flynt (C7 S6), and Ryan Keating (B8.5 S5) took home first, second, and third place respectively in the Audi class. We are also proud to announce that Audi Club Lone Star was presented with a special acknowledgement for the largest financial contribution to the Special Olympics Texas.
