Thanks to TAI
team for giving me the opportunity to cover this spectacular event that happened at Audi Noida, the largest AUDI showroom in India.
I reached the showroom around 10 AM and saw the amazing vehicles on display. My favorite was the Audi A3 cabriolet.
The registration was done on the upper level of the showroom where all the other participants were present.
There was a bar and they even offered us snacks before they started the event.
The event started with briefing by AUDI INDIA instructors ( Mr sunny and Mr prithvi) telling about the past events and the rules and safety aspects of the event.
Past year there were a total of 65 events that held in different parts of the country.
They also have sports event in which they have rs series , the TT and the R8 which happens on the Buddh International Circuit. Another event is the weekender event in which both the cars mentioned above as well as the Q series of cars take part.
Now coming back to today's event. There were a total of 6 cars : 2 Audi Q3 , 2 Audi Q5 and 2 Audi Q7. All with quattro technology.
The off road track was just 5 minutes away and the instructor wanted us to drive in a group but because of the traffic we couldn't.
The track was an empty space behind a mall and had many hurdles set by the Audi team to let us know the capabilities of the cars with quattro technology.
Off-road track was prepared with different kinds of common hurdles, including inclines, declines to test various aspects like balance approach angles, departure angles, break-over, stability of some of the features of quattro technology.
I was really surprised to see all 3 cars managed these hurdles\tests without much problems. Instructor told us to activate the off road suspension setup which increase the car height by 4". He instructed us after the acceleration test since the mode will get deactivate automatically after 30 kmph.
