As promised, our Worthersee coverage is back up and running with one last flourish. With Si Gray on his way back to the UK, it was now time for an American perspective. I landed this morning in Munich, grabbed the keys to a new S1 that Audi was kind enough to loan us and headed south toward the Austrian border where I arrived, just across the lake in the lakeside town of Velden.
Located on the same lake as Worthersee, Velden is a quieter community around this time in the multi-week escapade known as Worthersee. Its proximity means that it’s still overrun with modified Audis and other VAG offerings, as well as odd spectacles like the SEAT-sponsored party barge that pulled up to the dock just in time for a set of choreographed dancers to jump out, dance and then head back out on the water.
With today being a travel day, I’ve not yet ventured into the show for what is my first time here. Instead I cruised the area around Velden and nabbed photos on the downtown streets and nearby roads leading over to Worthersee.
Tomorrow marks all day in the say. I’ll take a water shuttle to the event and immerse myself, likely without time to post the final onslaught of photos until after I return to the USA. Expect them to pop up over the weekend and then a final show wrap-up in our Monday rotation.
