As some may have noticed, the Audi Club of Florida's new web site is up and running. Special thanks are in order for two of our members. First, for the work of Andreas Baensch with the new logo, which was debuted with the last newsletter. Second, the work accomplished by Walter Moore in conjunction, with the ACNA for putting all of this together, and getting it up and running.
Going forward amongst other pertinent information, the newsletter will be posted on this site along with your photos and articles, which can be shared with fellow Audi enthusiasts "On the Road" page. The new logo and website are a result of the recently initiated collaborative effort between the ACNA and AoA, which included the standardizing of branding and all chapter logos. For those of you who are into Twitter and Face Book we have also taken some steps in that direction, check it out when visiting the new site.
On behalf of the BoD and ACFL Chapter, I would also like to express our appreciation to Pete Zajac and his son Jeff who after some hard and very creative work in 2009, provided us a new site from scratch when the audiclubfl.com
was no longer viable.
Some great plans are afoot to have a get together for the start of the 24 Hours of Le Mans. We are awaiting confirmation from the dealership, nevertheless, make sure you have kept your calender set for Saturday June 16. Stay tuned as additional information becomes available for this event to be held in the Gulf Coast Region.

, and I am not referring to where Herdez salsa sauce for chips is made, but an interesting and informative take on the new Audi facility to be built south of the boarder.
Now that Ducati is being added to the Audi brand tent, http://audiusanews.com/pressrelease/2856/93/audi-ag-acquires-sports...
, would it not be fantastic if they brought out an additional line called the Four Ringed Heritage Series, which would consist of a DKW motorcycle with a side cars similar the Urals based on a 1939 BMW R71 (?) that are presently being built in Russia. http://www.imz-ural.com/
. Now that could lead to one heck of a cool parade lap or corral with all those bikes and side cars at Sebring or where ever the Four Rings gather.
