Editor Audi-Sport.Net Magazine
To get roughly back on topic again (roughly)......the question was "should events be more prominent?"
I agree, but then I would.
The Audi "scene" is NEVER going to be as big as the "cult" scenes of the VW, Ford, Mini and such......However, as proven with AITP, it does have a surprising big following.
Someone said earlier that Audi owners are more conservative than the above mentioned owners (VW, Ford etc).....again, I totally agree.
Audi owners tend to be more family orientated and this is why there is never much Audi presence at the BIG cult vag meets like Edition 38 etc.
The Audi scene, as far as I can see, has 4 main catagories.......1) The Performance boyz & Gurlz, 2) The Show & Shine Boyz & Gurlz, 3) The Classic Boyz & Gurlz and 4) The General proud to be an Audi owner section!
I'm pretty sure that ALL of us fall into at least one of these catagories if not more!
Shows like AITP were created to bring ALL of these classes together, to cater for ALL and have something for all.
Any event, Big or small will ONLY work if the organizer puts the effort in. I took a gamble with AITP and (luckily) it paid off.
The small "pub car park" meets dont always work as they (to me) seem a bit cliquey......where as the big events tend to breakdown barriers and bring everyone together as a community.
My 2 pence worth.....please feel free to click the "THANKS" button if you agree.
