    Default German Auto Day (GAD) Canberra 2019

    The German Auto Day proved to be a good chance to catch up and to meet other Audi owners mainly from Canberra, NSW & Vic.
    Many came from Sydney, 1 X Coffs Harbour, 1 X Moruya on the South Coast[video]

    For Audis who attended, the Event "Audi at German Auto Day, Canberra 2019" was Hosted in multiple Australian Audi Facebook Pages, and a couple of websites.

    Audi Canberra Centre attended with an RS5 plus 1 other, and offered a boot-load of fantastic prizes that were drawn on the day, including an "Audi A8 For a Day", Audi Bluetooth Speaker, Shirts
    A Weeks Whitsunday Holiday Prize with an A8 Limousine Pick-up was also offered by one of the Audi Entrants ( Name escapes me),
    Northside Euros offered 2 X $400 Service/Tuning/Labour Vouchers.
    There were other giveaways/prizes donated by Audi Canberra Facebook Members, including Scale R8 Models, Key chains, Valve Caps

    (Watch for retrospective updates here!)

    Called into the Auto day very late, about 1230. Long long story but spending 24 hours in Canberra hospital emergency with a close friend put paid to any chance of me turning up for the gate opening.

    Lots of cars already on the way out as we arrived but what a show. Honestly I didn't expect much from it as AUDI participation at the last few Autofest days I went to at the National Library were probably less than 10. Today's was a great showing, mostly cars I haven't seen at any previous event. I had a first time quick chat with Julian (jsol) who surely must get a prize for a trip from the mid coast. Luck also to catch Greg with the RS6. Sadly saw no one else that I could recognize from earlier times although Dirk must have been around somewhere.

    Anyway, great show, applause to the organizers, especially the AUDI section for getting the numbers. Hopefully, next year.

    Thankyou for coming out today. I'm sorry I missed you. Congratulations to Darren and his prize-winning Coupē 100.
    Well deserved!

    Yes it was a top day. Weather couldn't have been better. Was good to put some names to faces.

    I was thinking of going this year, but:

    1. The location put me off (not a fan of dog racing at all)
    2. I was hungover from a retirement do the night before!

    You can tell where my interests lay :)

    and after all that the site tells me that a *.jpg isn't a valid image file. Something not working here at the moment.
