    Hi everyone.

    I've just had a light bulb moment...

    I'm currently trying to fund raise for a public access defibrillator for my home town of Knaresborough and i've been struggling for ideas.

    Then it just came to me - A drive out into the Yorkshire Dales & Moors in aid of charity.

    I've been on a number of rallies with my friend in a pre-war Alvis Special; it sounds ace on full chat
    It is an amazingly beautiful part of the world and hopefully I could get hold of the pace notes from the event I did so I can ensure we revisit some lovely places.

    I am also thinking of tapping up Harrogate Audi to help sponsor, seeing as their dealership is actually in Knaresborough.

    It doesn't have to be just Audi, anyone could come along. Just a great day out, in a great location, in our beloved cars. A couple of quid per car doesn't seem too much to ask does it?

    This would be my first event I have organised since becoming a Rep / Mod (please be kind)

    What do you think?

    I'm game. I work at Harrogate Audi, I'm sure it is something they are willing to get involved in. We might have to register another RS6 as a demo to use!

    Brilliant idea. What date do you have in mind. Rendevous at Harrogate Audi then go from there? Might be best sooner rather than wait until the school hols when the roads are chocker. I'm going to Harrogate Audi on Saturday so I'll look out for Jordan.

    I've put it to the marketing executive for our site and the head of business and they thinks it is a great idea for Harrogate Audi to be involved. Ill update on here as soon as I know more!

    How about we make this an annual event on the calendar with a suitable worthy charity each year? Happy to get involved.

    Harrogate Audi is keen to get involved. PM'd you Matti with email address of who you need to get in touch with.

    Let get the wheels in motion. (If you'll pardon the pun) :p

    @Helifella mattie, soon as you have a date set up, I will put a post up on asn Facebook to reach the wider Audi group. This is a worth while cause. I agree with @smokeymike this could be a great annual event and good fundraising for a different charity each year. :) x

    Hi everyone,

    God I can't believe how busy I am at the mo. Just finalising the locations for where the defibrillators will be placed, so exciting times.

    I know some of you have other commitments and would really like to make it - me included!
    So I'm proposing Sunday 21st June. Seems a way off I know but at least it gives me chance to get a proper route "chalked out". I've emailed the vintage club in the hope they can give me the route notes etc.

    Based on what I can remember tied in with what I think would work is the following;

    Meet at Harrogate Audi with full fuel tanks!, collect itinerary (maps / pace notes, contact numbers)
    Grand Depart to them there hills...me, Hattie & the Mrs in an RS5 cabrio nudge nudge wink wink...
    Complete morning route,
    Lunch stop at Grosmont - there is a large car park within a small clearing of a wooded area just down the hill from the railway, perfect for such an event.
    Bring your own picnic lunch or there is a pub & tea room by the railway. Can be busy though.
    Complete a fun motoring lunchtime quiz, helps if you have passengers & no google cheating! - might be a prize from Harrogate Audi if we ask nicely.
    Depart for the afternoon route
    Ending back at Harrogate Audi for coffee, biscuits & medals.


    Known as the "Eskdale Run" this is an annual event done by the "Yester Year Motor Club" which I've done a number of times as previously mentioned, just with a different start / finish point. So no reason why it can't be a annual event for our modern cars too.

    Also do you think there should be an entry fee or just a collection of donations? Personally I think it should be a entry fee.

    Lastly thank you all for your replies of encouragement and post your thoughts up too.

    Cheers Matti

    Ps I will reply to PM's sent to me asap
    Pps, some roads are narrow & busy so we need to keep this in mind and respect the rules of the road and maintain the Club's image - it's not a race. Although some sections demand a spirited boot of the right pedal :-D namely Rosedale Chimney as demonstrated in my rather wobbly clip above.

    I have just realised the 21st June is Fathers Day...

    As for start time 08:30-09:00 @ Harrogate Audi, it'll be quite a long day if we are to cover the full route.

    I've not heard back from the motor club as yet.

    Yey, I've just been sent the route itinerary.

    Will need some tweaking as I need to adjust start & finish points and reroute accordingly.

    This sounds a good idea and I should be able to join in. I will have to swap that weekend of on-call but it should not be a problem.
    I know of a work colleague who is a non Audi classic car owner who may be up for joining in, although I cannot guarantee his car will last the course... Ha ha!
    I may be able to persuade a couple of car enthusiasts join come along for a drive out.
    Alternatively, I will see what my Dad has planned that weekend although I am not sure how his car knowledge is.

    Matti (Helifella) is currently trying to fund raise for a public access defibrillator for his home town of Knaresborough and has been struggling for ideas.
    Then it just came to him - A drive out into the Yorkshire Dales & Moors in aid of charity.
    It is an amazingly beautiful part of the world and with the pace notes from a previous event, he will ensure you visit some lovely places. This will be a great family day out and we encourage you to bring at least one passenger to help navigate. Donation on the day.

    Matti is looking to leave from Harrogate Audi at 9am promptly and finish at the same point around 6pm on the 28th of June.
    There will be a morning route, which will be handed out to each participating car at the start along with a event sign so we can easily see who is who, a lunch stop at Grosmont including a motoring quiz! Then an afternoon route handed out in exchange for a completed quiz sheet at the end of lunch !!

    We advise a full tank of fuel and also bring a picnic, as we are unsure of petrol station locations . There is a Tearoom & a Pub at Grosmont but they are very popular, so may be busy.

    We will add more details when the route has been finalised. Hope you can all join him in his fundraising for a fabulous cause.
    Please add your name if you wish to attend. This meet is open to anyone, you don't need to be a member of Audi-Sport.net to attend, so you can invite along friends and family in their own cars as well.

    Please add your name below if you are attending. Just copy and paste please. Thank You All :) x
    More info on his fundraising can be seen at www.facebook.com/KboroPAD
    If this event proves popular, we will consider making it an annual event with a different charity / cause each year.
