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 water cooled VW events of the year. Now, we have a busy ‘calendar’. The 2011 GTI Festival is moving its date to the end of that busy calendar, to establish a ‘Final Fling’ season finale, before the time comes to put cars away for the close season, or pull them apart for mods or winter rebuilds.

The GTI Festival – ‘Season Finale’ is for enthusiasts of all VAG marques, SEAT, Skoda, Audi and of course Volkswagen. Now the Volkswagen Group includes Lamborghini, Bentley and Bugatti too, but the closest we will probably come to seeing any of those will be Bentley rims shoehorned under late Golf arches!

The GTI 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 in 2010, the clubs area is now easily able to accommodate 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 get in early!

New T25/T3 Catalogue from VW Heritage

Posted by volkszone




VW Heritage’s design and parts team have been busy putting the finishing touches to their long awaited T25/T3 catalogue, the purchasing team have been searching high and low sourcing parts from all over the world, whilst the design team have been taking photographs, and preparing diagrams producing quite possibly the most in-depth T25/T3 catalogue available, anywhere! With 78 full colour pages, 1500+ photo’s, easy to use exploded diagrams and around 3000 parts we’d certainly be surprised if there was anything more comprehensive.


So whether you’re after a washer for an exhaust manifold, or a complete engine, a door lock pin or a door, a window seal, or a complete set of windows then you’ll find exactly what you’re looking for. As well as a wide range of service consumables, there’s the usual range of VWH “Extra Value Kits” offering you a simple cost effective solution to a range of typical jobs, these kits contain everything you need to do the job, whilst offering a good saving over buying the parts individually. Alongside the Extra Value Kits there is a selection of VWH exclusives which you won’t find anywhere else.

VAGfest – A new show?

Posted by volkszone


Sunday 11th July
Santa Pod Raceway,
NN29 7XA
01279 72 52 52

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’.
