Although a fairly new chapter in Arizona, the Second Annual Quattro de Mayo event proved that we already have a very devoted and enthusiastic club. With only three dealerships in a very large state, Audi owners in Arizona normally have to go out of their way to find other enthusiasts but this event brought a lot of them together to meet and enjoy all things Audi. Audi drivers traveled from the Phoenix area, Tucson, and even from New Mexico to attend this show ‘n shine event.
The event was sponsored by local dealership Audi North Scottsdale and held at the new Goodspeed Performance facility located in Scottsdale. Both Goodspeed and Audi North Scottsdale helped with last year’s inaugural event and we were very happy to have them return.
Goodspeed provided us with the facility, the grill, shop and dyno, while Audi North Scottsdale provided the food, awesome raffle prizes and a StaSIS Engineering Touring package equipped 2010 A4s to display. A big THANK you also goes to B&B Exhaust, STaSIS Engineering, Motul, and APR for donating to the raffle. A few members got to walk away with some pretty expensive items and gift certificates thanks to the generosity of these companies, and we are appreciative of their support.
Following last year’s successful show ‘n shine setting, this year also included a raffle, BBQ, tech tidbits by the gang at GoodSpeed, and even an R8 V8 on their unbelievable MAHA dynamometer. Sixty cars showed up and surpassed the 47 we had last year. Any time we can see participation rise, we know things are going well especially when everyone stuck through the 96 degree heat without a drop of moisture in the air. The chapter also unveiled our new club logo with our first run of official club t-shirts. We are very excited for future events and may make an event like this bi-annual and expand it into the fall.
Thanks to: Audi North Scottsdale, GoodSpeed Performance, STaSIS Engineering, APR, B&B Exhaust, Motul oil products, and all of the members that helped in organizing and running the event.
