That escalated quickly! The weather at Sunday's 'Drive Everything' event at Emerald Downs started out relatively pleasant, but things changed quickly when the hurricane arrived! It's a good thing that folks were able to get plenty of driving in before the weather turned south.
What a great way to celebrate the first sunny day in Seattle in months! Avants members got a private tour of Authentic Motorcars and the opportunity to go for a ride in some amazing automobiles including a BMW 2002Tii, Porsche 356B, Porsche 911 2.7, Ferrari 328 GTS and Lancia Montecarlo.
Not a bad way to spend a rainy Sunday in February! Thank you to everyone that came out to Sunday's 'Drive Everything' event at Pacific Raceways.
Participants got the opportunity to drive a bunch of amazing cars by swapping with other members on a closed-course. Exercises included a Slalom, Figure-8, Small Auto-X course and a Straightaway.
Lancias, Teslas, Alfas, oh my! Great seeing everyone today at The Shop! A little rain and wind never hurt anybody! Lots of great ride-alongs and swaps. Thanks to everyone that made this event such a success.
Thanks to everyone that braved the weather and came out to Saturday's 'Drive Everything' event at Pacific Raceways. The wet surface made everything more fun! Participants got the opportunity to drive some amazing cars including an Audi S6 and SQ5 (courtesy of Audi Seattle) and a VW Atlas (courtesy of Auburn VW)
Thanks to Mark Green at Cars Yeah for having me on his podcast! Always a pleasure to talk about cars and Avants with a fellow car enthusiast!
If you are entrepreneurial and like cars, I highly recommend Cars Yeah. Lots of great guests that span the entire automotive spectrum (celebrities, racers, entrepreneurs, etc).
The Avants mobile app is now live on iOS and Android! Browse cars, swipe right and get connected with other Avants members who would like to swap cars. Sort of like Tinder, but better! Meet up with fellow Avants members and go for a drive together.
Thanks to everyone that participated in the inaugural 'Drive Everything' event at Pacific Raceways. Participants got the opportunity to drive a bunch of amazing cars by swapping with other members on a closed-course.
Thanks to Dan from 425 Motorsports and Corey from Sound Wheel Works for giving Avants members a behind-the-scenes look at their shops.
Thanks to Drew at Speed Works NW for educating Avants members about how to import cars into the U.S. and for showing off his beautiful R32 Skyline GT-R.
Real life or Forza screenshot? I'm super excited to work with the folks over at Forza Motorsport for an in-depth look at the Avants CTS-V wagon. When you think about it, Avants and Forza are very similar in a lot of ways. Both programs give people the opportunity to drive a wide range of amazing cars, except one is virtual and the other is in real-life. Another key difference is that Forza is all about speed, whereas Avants is about really experiencing all of the nuances of a car (sound, smell, steering wheel texture, handling, etc).
Avants members got a "2 for 1" Tech Session last Sunday with demonstrations from Dent Solutions and Eastside Auto Salon. Doug from Dent Solutions gave us an up-close look at the tools and techniques that are used to safely and effectively remove dents. Joey and Ben from Eastside Auto Salon showed us some of the methods that they use to remove scratches and some of the benefits of Xpel paint protection film.
