Audi Q1

When you think of Audi you probably don’t think they just need a smaller crossover. After all the Q3 fills the crossover position quite nicely. However, the German luxury car maker has announced that they will be making an Audi Q1.

The new smaller crossover will compete with cars like the Mini Countryman. Audi will pretty much be the only luxury car maker in the space for now, as companies like Mercedes and BMW don’t have crossovers quite this small (although, BMW does own Mini).

Lotus has announced the price of the new Evora. Interestingly, the mid-engined 400 is priced very close to the Porsche Cayman GT4, so we should get some good head to head testing of those two very soon.

Heritage Racing's Jeff and Casey

Heritage Racing’s Jeff and Casey

If you are a car guy (or gal) with a child (or a few of them) then you probably hope that your son or daughter enjoys automobiles as much as you do. The great thing about cars is that they can help bring people together whether it be driving them, looking at them or working on them.

You also want your child to be a responsible member of society. Learning a bit about business is a good way to help with this.

Pictured above is Jeff Maciejewski with his son Casey and they were able to combine starting a business with their love of automobiles. Thus Heritage Racing was born. The startup currently makes automotive related T-Shirts and they will soon have a vintage racing coloring book for adults (which will be out by the end of May), and an 18-month motorsports calendar, listing scheduled SCCA, FIA, F1, and WRC events (due out in August).

We were able to ask Jeff some questions to get to know a bit more about the father and son team, so click the jump (or scroll down if you came directly to the full article) to learn more about Heritage Racing.
