Well, the weather was good.
This was the first (we think) joint venture between the UK's 'Club Audi' (which
has around 600 members with all kinds of cars) and the UK quattro Owners Club
(which has about 535 members, mostly with ur-quattros).
We met on a grassy rise behind the house in the middle of the park (Woburn
Abbey is set in several square miles of parkland). Several large deer had to
be negotiated on the way in. The organisers were totally overwhelmed by the
attendance - they were expecting around 12 Sport quattros and twenty to thirty
ur-quattros, and got fifteen Sports and something like seventy ur-quattros.
Imagine a field of metal, a traffic jam a hundred yards by seventy-five, and
_every_ vehicle is either an ur-quattro or a Sport quattro. The vast majority,
of course, in concourse condition. Mine was bang in the middle, in a position
of some prominence, and filthy.
I took around forty transparencies - there will be official photographs and
probably an official video (initially only in PAL format). We _hope_ (this is
NOT yet a promise by the committee) that there will be some sort of colour
newsletter, photo sheet or collage poster of the year's events.
