I don't know how many folks are on the big lists so I thought I'd share ...
So, how much interest is there here for putting some sort of convoy
Fellow Quattro heads;
Reserve the weekend of August 9, 2008, as we're planning a big event
celebrating 25 years of quattros and Sport quattros in North America.
Full details have not yet been finalized, but here is what we have
planned so far:
Saturday, August 9. Mountain drives, activities in and around Glenwood
Springs followed by a banquet and socializing with special guest
speakers (one lined up so far) significant in the development of the
quattro in North America.
Sunday, August 10. Group drives and show and shine event, with possible
track time, at the Aspen Racing and Sports Car Club track.
The date has been reserved at the track, which is now a private country
club track in Woody Creek (Aspen), CO. Actual track time (with
insurance, corner marshals, emergency staff, etc.) will depend upon
interest, as it will add significantly to the rental fees. We would love
to have this option available.
We are currently working on event sponsorship, possible Audi corporate
support, as well as other possible events, such as a group drive up
Pikes Peak in the days before, etc.
This has the potential to be a major event, and we would like to gage
support from ur quattro and Sport Quattro owners. Glenwood Springs was
chosen for the base location is it is a central with incredible scenic
mountain roads, sporting activities (hiking, fishing, biking, whitewater
rafting - you name it), etc. all within close proximity. Glenwood
Springs also has the world renown hot springs and pool. We are currently
working on reserving rooms and banquet facilities, in addition to the
track which has been tentatively reserved. Once the block of rooms is
secured, we will announce the exact location.
Our goal is to make this an affordable, family friendly, national, and
possibly international event. Considering the strength of the Euro these
days, perhaps we may even get some Europeans attendees. To that end, we
are also looking to announce this in the UK and German quattro forums.
Do note that this is intended to be an ur quattro/Sport Quattro event.
More information will be posted on the quattro forums and mailing lists
as it becomes available as well as on the up coming event website.
