Carlisle, PA – Like the venerable quattro all-wheel drive system itself, Audi owners are a hearty lot. They’re not ones to be chased away by bad weather, which was critical given this year’s Carlisle Import & Performance Nationals sported a slot in the calendar heartily dampened by rain. Nevertheless, the show went on and the Audi owners seemed little phased by something as trivial as precipitation.
Event was graciously hosted by Brian Hall, Gen Mananger of Audi Hoffman Estates.
