What did we think? One word springs to mind: Immense

We're pleased to announce two new sponsors for the site for the next 12 months; both are well known in their respective fields.

First up is Adrian Flux Insurance Services- I've used them myself in the past for both car- and home- insurance.

Adrian Flux Specialist Insurance for Audi Owners

Also, I am pleased to announce Support from Audi/ VW/ Skoda & Bentley specialists for North London- the multi-award winning Russell Automotive Centre (RAC) London.

London's Premier Independent Audi/ VW/ Skoda & Bentley specialist

I've met the owners of the business many years ago, and they go from strength to strength- as numerous awards will testify (many voted for by their customers).

Also- new in- Hoffman Car Parts.

Those of you old enough to remember VAG Parts? (Excellent prices and service)- these are not related in ANY way, BUT they offer the same deal- genuine parts at GREAT prices to "Joe public" (not everybody can use TPS)

Hoffman Genuine Audi Parts

On behalf of the site, I would like to say thanks for their support.

Please don't forget to mention the site when you contact either company.

Rob Austin A4Having not managed to get to any BTCC races this year, this meant that we hadn't managed to get to see Rob Austin Racing's A4 NGTC (Next Generation Touring Car) "in the flesh"- or, indeed, the "King of Cool", Rob Austin, himself.

 

A6 Hybrid Rear Shot with BadgeDuring our trip to Copenhagen & Sweden, as well as drving the new A3 in 3 door form, the S6, S7 & S8 on the track, we also managed to sample the new A6 2.0TFSI Hybrid.

Now available in the UK, the A6 Hybrid 2.0 TFSI tiptronic with 245bhp is available from  £42,700.00

Pembo- NEw Brighton Stages, Action ShotNew Brighton Promenade Stage - Wirral 7th & 8Th September 2012

It has been several years since I have competed in this rally and thought that a return to the closed public roads was overdue. 2001 saw the 30th anniversary of the event and a special ‘one off’ super special stage was organised. This saw two cars start together and complete two laps of the stage. This made it quite entertaining for the spectators and the drivers too. The super special stage was such a success that they decided to run a longer version of it in 2012 on the Friday evening.

The 2012 event was fully subscribed to within 3 weeks with over 110 cars wanting one on the 90 places. Held over 2 days the area welcomed crews and spectators from all over the country to a unique driving challenge of closed public road 100% tarmac rally.

A3 Test DriveSome of you will have read our test drive of the new A3 we were fortunate to drive at the end of July in Denmark & Sweden; today is the day that customers in the UK finally get to see the car "up close and personal", as the today is the day the car is launched to the UK public (Some actually received theirs this weekend!).

Since we wrote the article, the A3 has managed to achieve  the maximum five-star rating for passive crash safety from the Euro NCAP consortium. The results for adult occupant protection in a frontal, rear, and side impact as well as child safety and pedestrian protection make the new Audi A3 one of the safest cars in its class.

The test engineers awarded the A3 the best rating for driver and passenger in the frontal and side impact collisions. Children are also afforded very good protection in the new Audi A3. Euro NCAP also singled out the seat belt reminder for the front and, in particular, the rear seats. The Audi A3 comes as standard with both systems.

EXCLUSIVE:

We managed to catch up with the BTCC's "King of Cool", & future film star Rob Austin, to get more details about his A4 NGTC (Next Generation Touring Car) and how things have progressed since entering the BTCC in 2011.

Rob Austin Racing A4 promoWe've been banging on about Rob Austin Racing's A4 in the BTCC this year; plagued with issues- and more importantly- sponsorship/ budget for his (pair) of Next Gen A4 touring cars. They plan to come back- as "winner never quit & quitters never win" - at the next race at Rockingham..

BUT NOW YOU CAN HELP

 In their own words....

"Here’s your chance to get your own photo onto the roof of Rob’s Audi for the Rockingham round of the BTCC.

For just £35 you’ll get a 10cm x 5cm space on the roof area. 

Be quick though – there’s a limited number of spaces available so when they’re gone they’re gone… We’ll print them and stick them to the roof of the car for the next round of the BTCC."
