Club members attend the second running of this event hosted by Sean Dussault, Sam and Dan Ge. The event consisted of a show and shine, lapping and vendor display. Audi club member Philippe Dijon with his Audi R8 and myself with my Audi TTRS took people out for a spin around the track between lapping sessions. Was a great experience for both of us and our guest ride along. Some great cars and even greater people to talk cars with.

Vagkraft has been around for many years and in its current format is a 1-day event held in a conservation area. It is viewed as the first major VAG show of the year in Southern Ontario. The show raises funds for the charitable foundation named for one of the event’s founders who passed away from cancer in 2014. All funds raised are donated to organizations who are involved in the fight against cancer.
The weather was gorgeous and we had arranged a prime spot facing the main car show area. We had an RS7, MK1 TT ALMS and B8 RS5 on display at the tent: a number of other member cars were a few steps away. Additional attendees with displays included Audi True North (a local online Audi club we know well), Berlin Klassik - the big Euro (but mainly VAG) Southern Ontario car show we will be attending in August, and Audi of Mississauga (one of our Pro partners).
What started as a 20+ car Meet 'N Greet turned in to a 100+ car season opener. Several new members, lots of new friends, new business for some of our Individual Pros in attendance.
