On the same day with personalities like driver Marco Werner, Audi Sport North America director Rod Bymaster, and others in town to support the ALMS “Global Relevance” press conference highlightin alternative fuels, Audi held their now traditional “Stars and Cars” event. However, instead of holding the event in the usual venue of a local Audi dealership, it took place at the Audi Forum on Park Avenue in midtown Manhattan this time around.
Manhattanite Audi enthusiasts celebrated Audiʼs Lime Rock debut of the R10 TDI, which will race at the Connecticut track for the first time this year. On hand for autographs and a question and answer session, Audi works driver Marco Werner hung out all evening with the teamʼs most loyal local following.
Werner and some of the Audi Sport staff mentioned theyʼd be staying in Manhattan for the weekend. With their return to the Lime Rock track over the American 4th of July holiday, there was no sense in flying back to Germany. A short American vacation was in order.
As is usual for the Audi “Cars and Stars” event, a range of prizes awarded during the evening included VIP hospitality passes for the race in Lime Rock. No doubt, many attending that evening will also be at the race, and a few more thanks to these awards.
