Accomodating other folks isn't a problem, having a waterfest-type audi event
loses the focus of the urq, and adds huge logistical issues to an ur-qfest
IMO. It's easy to identify the urq owners, you just require a VIN for
registration, you don't have to bring it. Having done events before, you need to
weed out participation from visitation. Many venues these days have a limit as
to participants, including spectators. My own thinking is that's not a bad
I'd love to see a Road America Event as well, but given the cost of 'any'
track in the USA, I see reality eclipsing that vision. Realistically,
exceeding a couple hundred for event costs, doesn't sound realistic to me. An
ur-qfest at RA (assuming we could get a date) at 150 cars would be in easy excess
of 500per participant. Again, I think an autocross and some good road rally's
are more realistic in budgeting fun per dollar.

I agree with a lot of what you said in your post. Especially your summary.
The driving force here should be the Urq and the family and friends
That said, I think what you say in Point 3 is contradictory to that.
Unless I"m mis-reading it I read that to say that other I5's are not
welcome. For me, There is a good chance that would exclude me. I have two
83' ur-q's. But there is a good chance that neither would make it to this
event. Neither have engines in them at the moment. But if I don't tow one
behind my LandRover just to show it off, then I'd likely be coming in
another flavor of Audi.
I would also encourage anyone who loves the car, but doesn't own one to
come and participate. I would agree that the FOCUS should not be other
cars. But people should be free to come in whatever they bring. What
matters is getting everyone together to celebrate the car, and have good
Thanks for the long posts.
