Introducing yet another NEW SHOW! Well not really… a show with a 20 year pedigree, but radically different. VAGfest, Santa Pod, July 11th 2010 – is everything that the old GTI Festival was, and more. It is a one day show for air and water cooled VW’s, Audis, Seats, Skodas… and it is the only show where all marques get equal billing.


All owners of Volkswagen Group vehicles are welcome. The organisers are re really keen to see as many clubs as possible represented, and are also hosting for the first time at any VW show anywhere, the ‘show within a show’, Girlz N Dubz. All female owners can get to show off their pride and joy in the ‘Girlz N Dubz’ competition and display. Girlz N Dubz will definitely become the coolest event in the UK for female owners… The girlz will be interviewed about their cars, their interests, and there are a number of trophies up for grabs, for their performance in the show arena as well as on the track. All will have an equal chance against the guys in the regular Show & Shine too.


All clubs are invited to display during the day, and the ‘Best Club Display’ at VAGfest carries a £100 charitable donation, to a charity chosen by the winning club. The Show & Shine has a massive number of awards including Best Audi, Best Skoda, Best SEAT, and Best VW, Best Engineering, Best Paint, Best Engine, Best Van and many more. There are also ‘top twenty’ trophies covering all the marques. Awards on the track include quickest VW, Audi, SEAT and Skoda, as well as a number of awards based on engine sizes for all VAG vehicles.


The organisers are also really keen to see as many transporters, campers etc, including late models, because we really want this show to evolve to include every Volkswagen Group vehicle, past, present and future. Lamborghini, Bentley and Bugatti are therefore more than welcome too, although owners should be aware that there are several regulars at these shows who are best avoided on the racetrack unless you want to look a bit silly.

As well as the ‘Dizzy Rascals’ autotest course, there will be a couple of demonstration vehicles, a 5 second Fuel Funny Car, and the equally impressive – regular crowdpleaser – The Fireforce Jet Car.

July 11th – Santa Pod – Just £15 for a day of Girlz, Dubz, Clubs, Traders, Sprints, AutoJumble – and everything else ‘VAG’.
