No, the Annual General Meeting serves that purpose.  Usually at the Hilton  
Hotel outside Warwick, in April/May.  Castle Coombe is one of the larger 
events, though - expect 25 ur-quattros and 1,000 spectators.

If you own an ur-quattro or Sport quattro, you can be a full member.  If not, 
you can be an associate member.  There is no difference other than the name, 
which is to satisfy the RAC.

Malcolm Lake on 01792 899647 has all the details.  I'm sure he'll be taking his 
wife, if only to raise David Preece's blood pressure.

Spoken like a man who's never hunted bugs in a late model ur-quattro.  I was 
trained as a cable and wire engineer, and was a mechanic on the RAC rally for 
two years.  Ur-quattro electrics terrify me.  Audi have a nasty habit of using 
separate chassis returns for each function, and not uprating the brown return 
wires when they add load to the circuit.  The book (just the wiring diagrams 
for the ur-quattros) is 4 1/2" thick.
