On a sun-kissed Saturday in June, Audi Expo 2017 took place at Griot’s Garage Flagship Retail Store & Event Center in Tacoma, Washington. The parking lot teemed with an impressive selection of retro and modern era Audis. Along with enjoying pizza and cold beer in the beer garden, attendees had the opportunity to stroll the grounds, visit sponsor booths, view a full spectrum of Audis, and cast a ballot for best in show, all the while listening to music spun by DJ and Audi enthusiast Alex Ng.
Our sixth annual show set new records! Over 300 German cars from five states and thousands of visitors descended upon the Gilmore Car Museum in Hickory Corners, Michigan (about 2.5 hours’ drive from both Chicago, IL and Detroit, MI) for the Sixth Annual DeutscheMarques car show on July 8, 2017. The weather could not have been more beautiful - mid-70s, low humidity and less than a 10% chance of rain. The Garage Queens came out in force, to set a new record, making DeutscheMarques the largest German car show in the Midwest!

MARIO ANDRETTI WAS QUOTED saying: “Motor racing is like one big family, ultimately, and when you come back to it, that's really what it feels like.” For many of us that participate in High Performance Driving Events, amateur racing, road rallies, and other driving related activities, arriving at an event is like a fun reunion where new family members are welcomed and old ones are relished.
Driven Audi RS3THE RS3 ENGINE COMES alive with throaty growl and brawny crackles. Inline five, 2.5-liter turbocharged engine produces addictive sonorous sounds when I rev it. Its glorious noise reverberates through the underground parking garage. Unique 1-2-4-5-3 cylinder firing order gives RS3 an addictive soundtrack.

STARTING FOR THE 2016 model year, Audi has done more than a cosmetic refresh on all the C7 chassis cars. Refreshes include new front and rear fascias, single frame grilles, headlights, taillights, and elliptical exhaust pipes.
THEY CAME FROM everywhere, crossing country borders and countless state lines, with the same destination in mind: Colorado Springs. All to attend Camp allroad, the inaugural gathering of people who share a passion for what I believe to be Audi’s most interesting model of the past 15 years.
