GALLERY: 2012 Audi Expo sponsored by Audi USA

Earlier this month the 2012 Audi Expo was held at the headquarters of Griot’s Garage in Tacoma Washington. The Audi Expo has been around for 10 years but this year was by far the best in memory. The venue was set up perfectly for the event and held both the vendors and displayed cars without a problem. It is always so much fun to be a part of these events and meet so many of our forum members and online fans!

The sponsor list this year was headlined by Audi USA who brought out some special treats for the show-goers. They put on display a brand new 2013 Audi S8 with the highly powered 4.0 TFSI twin turbo engine. They also brought out the S8’s little brother, the S6 sedan that is powered by a slightly detuned version of the same engine. Last but certainly not least, they displayed one of the only A3 e-tron cars in the country. This plug in hybrid showcases Audi’s commitment to reducing our reliability on fossil fuels.

2011 Audi Expo event recap

Text and Photos By Joshua Decker

The end of June marks a few important events in Seattle. The first of those events is the much anticipated Audi Expo which is the largest all Audi event of its kind in the northwest. The second event is the annual arrival of summer, which conveniently showed up just a few hours before the show! The weather couldn’t have been nicer and the atmosphere was set for an amazing event.

As Audi Expo celebrated its 11th year, it held its event at a new venue. Audi Expo has always been held at the Bison Creek Pizza in Burien, Washington, but the event had grown big enough to try a new venue. This year, the event took place at the Pacific Grand Prix Motorsport Park adjacent to Pacific Raceways in Kent, WA. Pacific GP is touted as the most versatile and exciting track in the NW. It is home to professional karting championship races, drift series, motocross, auto racing, and hoonage of all sorts.

Event Preview: Audi Expo 2011 takes over Pacific Grand Prix on June 25th

One of my very favorite events of the year is the annual Audi Expo show and get together that takes place every June here in the Seattle area. The Pacific Northwest is known for its strong Audi Club and above average Audi ownership numbers. So it is no surprise that our annual party is one of the largest ALL AUDI events in the entire country! Every year we have nearly 300 Audis and it is a fun event for families as well. This is the one even in the NW that you simply cannot miss!

Event Details: June 25th 2011, 5PM – 10PM at Pacific GP in Kent, Wa.

Special Note: This year the event is moving from Bison Creek in Burien to the Pacific Grand Prix racing facility adjacent to Pacific Raceways in Kent, Wa!

Come out to the largest Northwest display of privately owned new and retro Audis!

Words by: Robert S. Schultz, Photos by author & Audi USA via flickr

For a car that isn’t officially here yet, the Audi TT RS has already acquired quite a following. In fact, it’s about 11,500 strong, the number who signed the Facebook petition to bring the car to the U.S. To show its appreciation, Audi invited the RS’s friends to an exclusive preview luncheon Feb. 10 during media days at the Chicago Auto Show.
