No more picture choices, no more copy amends. That’s it. Finished. This week, the gigantic print button was pressed to produce the programme for Goodwood Road Racing Club’s 72nd Members’ Meeting. The race weekend, which carries on from the BARC’s Members’ Meetings of the 1950s and ‘60s, features races and demonstrations with cars spanning various eras and disciplines, such as Group B rally cars and turbo Formula 1 racers. Tickets are still available for the event (29-30 March), so get in there while you can to watch what promises to be some captivating racing.
Start the press!
An icon unveiled
The Audi TT became an instant modern classic when it went on sale in 1999. This week, Audi unveiled the new, third-generation TT at the Geneva motor show – and two days later, we were invited to an exclusive viewing of the new car at Audi City. Audi Magazine writers Angus Frazer and Peter Adams went along to have a look – and obviously to mingle with the nation’s celebrities (while avoiding the paparazzi, who definitely would have recognised them both). We can report that the new TT is a stunning car that mixes striking styling with that iconic silhouette, and we’ll have more in the next issues of Audi Magazine and Audi Update.
Up, up and away!
Goodwood Circuit began as the old perimeter road of a former WWII airfield, RAF Westhampnett, and today the aviation connection lives on through the Aero Club. To keep club members informed, we created the 2014 membership pack, which includes an events diary and a design for a paper aeroplane – because, let’s face it, we all want to build the perfect plane.
A road trip is the ultimate adventure – and there’s no adventure quite like leaping into the unknown. Last week, Northstar’s Peter Adams went on a crowd-sourced road trip around the UK in an Audi A3, being directed entirely by Audi UK’s 446,000 Facebook fans and 77,000 Twitter followers. With around 400 people ‘liking’ our final Facebook post, over the course of the week we drove 1400 miles around the UK, and visited more than 20 places. You’ll be able to read the story in the next issue of Audi Magazine (available as an iPad app) and on Audi Update.
The pink effect
We know it’s Valentine’s Day today but the day most synonymous with pink actually happened at the beginning of the week – that’s right, this week saw the latest issue of Pink Science go out to Breast Cancer Campaign supporters all over the UK. It features the wonderful Nagy family, whose story demonstrates how the charity aims to support those who are left behind after breast cancer strikes.
