Posted by volkszone

Sunday 22nd April
Santa Pod Raceway
NN29 7XA


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 please call 01279 725252 or email: [email protected]

End of an era – Mexico City’s Beetle taxis taken off the streets

Posted by volkszone

Mexico’s capital city has announced that is it retiring its iconic Volkswagen Beetle taxis from the roads.

Officials said on Friday that the last of the old-style VW Beetles will have their cab licences expire by the end of the year, marking the end of an adventurous – if uncomfortable – part of Mexico City life writes

The rounded, two-door sedan nicknamed the Bug – in Mexico, it’s a “Vocho” – has long been an informal symbol of this sprawling city; a tough, rattling reflection of its gritty urbanity and chaotic streets.

At its height in 2006, the little VWs accounted for almost half of all taxis in Mexico City, with about 50,000 cruising the streets.

2012 VolksWorld Show – 24th-25th March at Sandown Park Racecourse, Esher, Surrey.

Posted by volkszone

With just three weeks to go until this years VolksWorld Show (24th-25th March) we hand over to Volksworld editor Ivan McCutcheon to tell you what’s going on at this years event, if you have not already booked your advanced ticket make sure you do today at and save up to 55%.

What’s going on at the 2012 VolksWorld Show – 24th- 25th March at Sandown Park Racecourse, Esher, Surrey.

I am very pleased to announce two of the most important cars in the history of Volkswagen and Porsche will be on display. The cars in question are the two oldest VWs in private ownership. The VW 38 prototype is one of the very first VW Beetles built, and dates from 1938, while the KdF-Wagen Type 60 K10 Rekordwagen is a sports car based on the VW38 and the car that first started the transition from Volkswagen to Porsche. This is the first and probably only time they will be displayed in the UK together so make sure you don’t miss out.
