1988 Audi 200 TRANS-AM Headed to Monterey Car Week

Yet another highlight can now be confirmed for next week's bucket list worthy Monterey Car Week.  We've just learned that a recently restored 1988 Audi 200 TRANS-AM racer will be present in Monterey and will even take to the track at the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion at Weathertech Raceway Laguna Seca. Interestingly, this appears to be neither a move by Audi Tradition nor Audi itself. While Audi does plan a markedly stepped up presence in Monterey including the reveal of the PB 18 e...

Project TT RS: Part 1 – Dealership to Monterey

words: Troy Sicotte Project TT RS is a multi-part series that follows the journey of an Audi enthusiast, the ownership experience, and the “ecosystem”  that follows the car around ACNA events and an OEM+ minded build project.

These affections lead to me first to a 2013 Audi TT RS...
