Scotland - 35 Years of the Audi quattro - 30th Aug

I've posted this up on behalf of Eddy who is organising this:-

Right all,

I am in the process of organising a event to celebrate 35years of the Audi quattro on Sunday 30th of August, this will be held at;
Rhu Marina
Helensburgh
G84 8LH

Bring your quattro!

There will be Special cars form the Audi history collection on display, Music, Food, talks, raffle, closed road drive, etc, etc.

This is a charity event to raise funds for the Beatson West of Scotland Cancer Hospital

Basic Itinerary for the day;
9-10am, set up and checks
11am, open and car parking for Audi clubs etc
11:45am, Cars leave for the road run ***
1pm, Return to Rhu Marina for lunch etc
2-5pm, Music and talks from guest speakers
5-11pm, disco and dinner, music will be Jazz and dance


***- If we get enough support I am hoping to have one of the roads closed for a 'Run' for quattro cars only.

This is a link of the roads used by the Top Gear team for filming a few years back.

Although this event is all about 35years of quattro it will be open to everyone so please come in what ever you drive. (as long as it has 4 rings)

I really hope we can get support for this as its for a great cause !
There are plenty of local B&B's for folk coming from further away and there is also a camping area with the usual facilities at the marina if you want to make a weekend of it.

More details to follow.

It's his fiddle playing that's the problem. Would love to go to this but not a good time of year work wise for me.

sh&t this coincides with Volksfling 2 at Biggar which I've pencilled in already, which I was doing in the quattro this year. Maybe change my mind as it's quite close to me. Mmm what to do !

Sh£t this clashes with Volksfling 2 at Biggar which I've already pencilled in to do in the quattro. Might change my mind as it's only about 25/30 miles from me, mmm what to do!

I know about his Fiddle playing, was just worried he had a Trumpet too!

Not good time of year for you I know, but, you could crash at mine Saturday night and go for the day out on the Sunday? (good excuse to get the quattro out)

Folks

Here's a message from Eddy the organiser:-
(Condolences to Eddy and his Family)

Unfortunately after 7 years of battling with cancer my Mum has passed away, so this event means more to me than ever. She spent a good amount of time in the Beatson, and they have been fantastic, support, care and a real lovely bunch of people.



So, now we have support from Lomond Audi :tup:
They will be bringing the new RS3 which should be available for demo drives and a chance to have a go in the wee beastie :ihih:
Also the new Q7 which will be on demo too, apparently it will be able to not only park itself but with a trailer on the back !!!
And they are donating some great raffle prises,

Now then guys and gals, I need your help;
If any of you are members on other forums, TT ,RS4 ,S2 , etc, etc, please put a post up for this , tell your friends, the more support we can get the better.
We are also looking for any raffle prises, any thing will do but please remember there will be children so things for them would be great.
Finally , we need you and your Audi !

I'm going to start a list of those that intend to go to this, please add your name so I can pass on the list to Eddy:-

Indeed I have mate, but still awaiting repairs after an argument with a shed!

Big congrats on your win by the way!!    Stunning car you have there!!

So, still no brainer!!!!!  This event needs to see cars like yours there,  it's obviously one of the best!!!!! And this event is to honor its existence and for a good cause.
Hedge

I will be there in the quattro, it's only a stones throw for me. Thanks for the compliments. Was at Scottish vag on Sunday, must have got 25 positive comments from people. Two guys said it was their car of the show, only problem the two young judges, must have been under 25, didn't think so.

That's great news!!! I'm really looking forward to seeing it myself!!!

The quattro's always attract attention at shows. I was at Glamis car show a few weeks ago (cars from all eras and makes about) on the qoc stand and it never ceases to amaze me how many people were all over them, particularly people that don't even own or know much about Audi's.

I'll bet the young judges were more interested in the latest Golf's innit!!

Hi Norman, I am hoping to attend this event, think I will make a weekend of it.
Is it mostly UR quattro's on the day?

Thanks in advance.

Nice one David!

Not sure exactly how many quattro's will be there, I get a feeling though that there's not nearly enough given the context of the gathering.  Still lots of scottish quattro's under the knife at the moment and one or two not available (Guy for example).

So it would be good if you could take one of yours to bolster the event!

A few of us staying the night, due to a planned tipple on the day. (I'm not really a drinker as you know, but I've been roped into it)
davidbell

Stay clear of the booze Norman, only gives you a hangover!! lol

Iam looking forward to this event, I think it will be a great day, with (no doubt) some very nice cars showing up!

If I wasn't going to Edinburgh I'd be there.

If I didn't need new discs and pads, and if I'd didn't rip my bumper this morning I would have been keen.would have been good to catch up with the Scottish owners again
Hedge

Not many going to this then, what about other Audi forums is it on them ?

There's actually quite a few going, just not all listed on here.  I know of at least 8 other cars from around me that are going.  I think it'll be a good turnout on the day.  Just hope the weather holds up.

It's also on qOC Forum, Classic Audi, Audisport.net to name but a few.

Hi All,
1 week to go

Cars can arrive from 10am on, if any Quattro cars are wanting to do the 'run' please be at the marina no later than 11:15 for a briefing. We hope to set off at 11:30 on the dot.
Looking to return for 12:30 ish

Glasgow Audi will be running demos from 11am-4pm but please remember you driving licence if you want a shot of one of their vehicles.

There will be disco (party) at 7pm till late and reminder to bring some booze if you want. Also, take time this week to think of a sicky to tell the boss on Monday. Bank holiday Monday BTW  If you are camping out we have toilets and showers at the marina and a café for breakfast.

Thanks all

Hedge

Can't see any posts about this on Audisport-net. What section is the post in ?
quattrokid

Bring your RS Hedge 👍 would be good to have 5 different coloured RS4's  there 👍
kmm

I'm a maybe. I will let you know in a few days.
Hedge

Rs4 has got a nail in a tyre at the moment, and I can't find the locking wheel nut, drove from Harwich to Scotland with it like that, luckily it only lost a about 2psi on the journey.

Not when someone starts talking twaddle!
Eddy

We have a closed road, not to race on before you all get your helmets ready but so we can all enjoy a quiet stretch of well maintained A road

So the details;
This is for quattro cars only.
The 'suggested' donation for doing the run is £5 but its up to you.
We leave from Rhu at 11:30 on the Dot, if you aren't there we cant wait as the road wont be closed for very long.
You must be at the drivers briefing for 11:15 !
More info will be handed out when you arrive on Sunday.

Hedge

What road will be closed ?
Eddy

One nearby
jockthedog

Hi Eddy, sorry I didn't get back to you before now. I was in a cave in Edinburgh when you called.

The S4 is up on stands right now waiting for new brakes to arrive.
If planets align and the wind is in the east, I might see the brakes on Saturday so there's an outside chance of the car making it thru. Very outside.

It's not really my bag, this kinda thing, but I'm tempted to come to this one, if only to raz past my ex-mo-in-law who lives in Rhu

And I think the RS666 is a quattro, so I may actually bring that, eh? It's a million times more presentable.
Might even get it valeted. Hmmmm. Not 100% yet, but I getting there.

How long is this road btw? Should I bring a can of fuel for the way back?
quattrokid

It's about 35 miles Jock ... so IF you need more fuel before 35 miles expires your really trying a f'ing site harder than the rest of us 💨💨💨💨😂👍
Eddy

Hi Jock,
Bring a quattro, with what ever engine it has fitted  

Would be great to see the S4 tho

Noggymike

Show off the Beastie
kmm

For the closed road run for quattro's..... I know what you mean but technically my rs4 is a quattro lol.
Looks like I will make it. I will try and be there for start but could be after lunchtime.
quattrokid

Great news Kenny 👍👏

Apparently it's the Naval Base to Coulport road that's been closed for us 👍
Eddy

quattro cars only;
Any car fitted with a quattro drive train (4x4)

Any Audi modified to Quattro.
Any age of Audi with the above.
jockthedog

I just posted this to A-Addict.
jockthedog

RS666 is booked for a claybar treatment tomorrow evening.
Expect a car too shiny to look at!

And just heard that my S4 brakes should arrive on Saturday.
If I can get them on and tested before it gets dark, I'll try to bring the S4 along too.
I'll have a stand-in driver of course. My legs aren't that long!
Eddy

And that's a    from me

They are apparently going to return and try again, but it might be too late to get it all done today.

I don't know how I did it but quite proud of that pic I am,
It was taken last year at Doune hill climb at the top of the east brae.

Be at Erskine Bridge for a 09:50 departure if you want to join us
jockthedog

I (we) should be passing that way around then but don't wait for me/us.
I've got my Uncle Munster


to drive the 666 who will want to stop for a piss every few miles,

and there must be something wrong with me because I not only just fitted a full set of front brakes, bled them and tested them - they work! - all in 2 hours, popped down to the shell station to get fuel....

but most unbelievably (are you sitting down) I WASHED THE S4!                
Scraped would be a better word for it, but it's now as shiny as it ever gets.

See you there or on the road. We will be hard to miss.
