If you have not visited VW Action before – then you really should – unlike any of the other shows at Santa Pod Raceway, it is set up entirely on the ‘green field’ side with the heavily-subscribed Show & Shine surrounded by Trade Stands – plus a huge Autojumble area with Club Camping, General Camping and Family Camping around them.

VW Action has always been about the cars – particularly VW cars – both aircooled and watercooled (but expect to see some Detroit iron on the track too) – and no attraction has ever been included that would particularly attract or interest ‘non-VW fans’ just out for a party – sure, the ‘Happy Days Rock ‘n’ Roll’ themed Disco and Friday night’s ‘dance’ DJs will keep VW folk entertained during the evenings, as will the Indie bands in the Fuellers Bar – but they aren’t (and never will be) the raison d’etre for the event.

Organised for many, many years by VW enthusiasts FOR VW enthusiasts, VW Action is a firm favourite with many, especially with its extra shower blocks and toilet blocks that the organisers bring in – and all the FREE stuff for the little ones (like a Facepainter and Bouncy Castle) has made VW Action a ‘must go’ event for families.

Attractions include the VW Action Club Games, the Campervan Cookoff and the Charity Auction that regularly raises thousands of pounds for Brad’s Cancer Foundation. With specially invited European and UK VW Racers racing on the dragstrip in the dark, a huge Show & Shine both days (including a Kids’ Show & Shine) Traders, Autojumble, Displays, Clubs, Cars For Sale, Pinstriping Demonstrations, Graffiti Demonstrations, Poi Circus Tuition and Demos, Off-Road Racing, Radio Controlled Car Drag Racing and loads more – there is always something to see or do at VW Action.

With only 11 days to go (and just 4 days for advance tickets) – please book now (and save money) to treat your family to a great weekend’s fun that should lift everyone’s spirits after 2012’s somewhat ‘topsy-turvy’ VW show season so far.
