So the Audi Polo Awards at Coworth Park were serious fun!
As it's always scheduled in for mid-May, it hits the beginning of the season and really kicks off the high goal polo scene for the UK. It's also one of the only occasions when literally everyone is in one location so you get to gossip with friends, do your number on the big networking cheese and eye up Facundo Pieres (Google him. W.O.W).
There's also lots of Pommery floating around and, with Audi giving you a ride home in one of the chauffeur-driven Q7s, you can indulge as much as you like. Yippee! I'm still waiting on images, but here's a break down of the results for my polo readers!
