Head of Product Development - Technician - RAVENOL Lubrication Specialist

As a long-time European car enthusiast, Huri has been raised in and worked his entire life around the automotive industry. His earliest memories as a child were spent after school siting on a stool at the family shop (i.e. Blauparts, Blaufergnugen Inc.) watching and observing his father and the technicians as they worked on European cars and interacted with customers. This later grew into a specific passion for Audi as he would watch old Audi VHS video tapes, like the “The Audi Quattro Experience.” The engineering and advancements Audi made before other car manufacturers cemented Audi as his car of choice. At a young age he started working in the family business in a variety of departments. Everything from shipping and fulfilment to warehousing and receiving, but his real passion was working on cars. He purchased his first Audi at the age of 15 with his first project car starting as a B3 Audi 90 that saw itself slowly transform into a B4 RS2 Sedan.

Soon after getting his license, he began attending the Audi Club driving school safety seminars. Back then this school was called the Audi Quattro Club. For quite a few years he advanced in driving competence and safety while enjoying the Audi quattro AWD system. Much of his time was spent at racetracks such as Road America in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin and Grattan Raceway just outside of Grand Rapids Michigan.

Through the years, he's expanded his education and understanding as an independent Audi and VW technician. Performing everything from scheduled service and maintenance to basic bolt on tuning installations. He's also had the privilege of working alongside and developing strategic partnerships with some of the automotive industries largest OE part manufacturers and suppliers. This has helped him keep pace with the ever-changing automotive product and lubrication industry. His 17 years of technicial experience and knowledge has been put to work in the development of our BLAU® Automotive Maintenance Kits and how-to instructional information for our customers. Still loving to get his hands dirty, he can always be found in the shop tinkering on newer Audi VW models, snowmobiles, dirt bikes, and even some American diesel trucks.
