Over the years, from the very first GTI Festival events in the late 1980s, the shows have attracted hordes of Volkswagen enthusiasts to several different venues around the UK. The GTI Festival and ‘Inters’�� were for a decade or more, just about the only specialist watercooled VW events of the year. Now, we have a busy show calendar.

The GTI Spring Festival is now established as the real ‘season opener’��, and THE one day show for all enthusiasts of all VAG marques, SEAT, Skoda, Audi and of course Volkswagen. And now the Volkswagen Group includes Lamborghini, Bentley and Bugatti too! The GTI Spring Festival, is a show where all VAG vehicles are welcome with open arms. All clubs are invited to display during the day, and after a very well received revamp of the show layout, the clubs area is now able to accommodate in excess of the 40 clubs who regularly attend the event. If you want your club to be part of the show, you need to act fast. The earliest club bookings get pride of place, and we expect to see a huge number of clubs and registers represented, so please get in early! To book club displays call 01279 725252 or email us.

Volksworld Show – A message from Ivan McCutcheon

Posted by volkszone

VOLKSWORLDLOGODon’t Miss The VolksWorld Show,
Sandown Park, 26th -27th March 2011

Shazam! The puff of smoke has cleared and the 2011 VolksWorld Show is almost here. It’s not down to magic though, it’s down to a lot of hard work by my team for a start. But that would be nothing without each and every single car owner and workshop who have been building the cars you’ll see at the show. I doubt we could add up all the hours that have been spent in cold garages over the winter on these cars. One thing is for sure – we’ve got some seriously cool cars together for you.

VOLKSWORLD1

To celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the VW Type 3 we have gathered together some great examples from all over Europe and put them into a special display. We have also got a lovely Type 3 Karmann Ghia in the main foyer which you can get your photograph taken in – we’ll then make you a one-off 50th Anniversary VolksWorld Front cover which you can take home as a momento. All proceeds (not profits!) will be donated to our nominated charity SPECAL.

Also in the foyer The Southern Dune Buggy Club members are attempting to build a Beach Buggy from scratch so if you come make sure you keep them fired-up with words of encouragement.

Ultra VW Meet at the 8 Ball Diner – Thursday 7th April

Posted by volkszone

ULTRA VW MEET – in association with Ultra VW Magazine.

The 8 Ball Diner

001UVW86.qxd:UVWThursday 7th April at the 8 Ball Diner and every first Thursday of the month – Ultra VW Magazine comes to the 8 Ball. Open to all – but especially to lovers of all things aircooled VW. Expect to see a car park full of Bugs, Busses, Type 3s and more. Ultra VW Magazine will be on hand to take subscriptions and sell the latest issues of the magazine as well as back issues. Not to be missed. 7.30 till midnight.

The 8 Ball Diner has been created with the vision of providing the best facility in the UK for any car or bike enthusiast club or group. The Diner reflects its owners’ passions for cars and bikes both new and old, 50s lifestyle, Bikes, Drags, Vintage and Kustom Kulture – but our ‘take’ on this still manages to offer the style and comfort of a truly 21st century restaurant and bar. We care about our food, our customers, and our facilities, in a way that ‘franchised’ or ‘corporate’ bar/restaurants just cannot. We are currently building a calendar of events for 2011 and onwards, with clubs ‘hosting’ a regular night, breakfast meet, or day meeting at the 8 Ball. Each night will still be open to all owners and enthusiasts, whether or not they are members of the host club.

There is no question that the 8 Ball is all about a love of cars and bikes, but other areas have not been overlooked. The sound system, plasma TVs and air conditioning help create a ‘club’ atmosphere, but that’s not a reason to not indulge in the extensive British and American styled food menu. Bangers & Mash and Steak & Kidney Pudding sit proudly alongside smokehouse Chillis and hand formed Burgers, all of which can be washed down with beer, American lagers, glass bottled colas, or traditional milkshakes. We hope you like what you find at the 8 Ball today, but be assured we are not going to stop improving until we’re the best roadside diner on the planet.
