Santa (Pod) is comin’ to town – Xmas gifts and discounts on 2011 events

Posted by volkszone




Santa Pod, the home of European drag racing has literally just saved Christmas for petrolheads everywhere, with their seasonally cheering ticket offers and superbly stocked online ‘Pod Shop.

The FIA-approved venue is offering enthusiasts the chance to buy any tickets for 2011 online, before the 31st January 2011, and benefit from an ‘Early Bird’ discount of a whopping 20%. Best of all, that’s off ANY show you care to visit, even the headline FIA/UEM Top Fuel and capacity-filled ‘lifestyle’ events like USC or Bug Jam qualify, as long as the tickets are purchased before the end of January. The only shows not covered are DWYB days, RWYB days and Third Party events (like VW Action, GTI Festival etc.)


As the perfect Christmas gift for any motorsport or car enthusiast, day ticket prices for certain events start at under a tenner, so rather than giving socks, chocolates or some CD that will never be listened to, why not give them something that they’ll actually enjoy? With Santa Pod’s show content aimed squarely at a good old-fashioned family day out, why not get a few and take the whole clan out for the day? Better still, get a weekend ticket, (where appropriate) and avail yourselves of the free camping and facilities on site.


If you’re still stuck for the perfect gift, simply click to and then the ‘Pod Shop’ tab to reveal a huge range of toys, books, DVDs, stickers, and even clothing. If that doesn’t inspire you, why not buy a gift voucher? – valid for all of the above – and let the lucky recipient decide for themselves? With stickers starting at just 50p and gift vouchers available in £10 denominations, there’s something to suit every budget and taste.


So take it from us, don’t settle for Granny’s socks this Christmas. Drop decidedly unsubtle hints and get something that you actually want to open this year.

It’s a VW Winter Wunderland!

Posted by volkszone

Volkswagen of America, Inc. is excited to offer customers a fun and playful way to get discounts on essential winter season parts. Drivers who visit Volkswagen’s “It’s A VW Winter Wunderland!” website,, can download rebates that are valid at their local participating Volkswagen dealer. The rebates are good for discounts on tires, batteries, and wiper blades. Visitors to the site can also enjoy “Volkswagen Wunder Rally,” the new interactive online game available from Volkswagen Parts and Service.

Volkswagen’s “It’s A VW Winter Wunderland!” website provides an interactive opportunity for customers to learn about the current national service and parts promotion. Drivers can race a virtual Volkswagen Eos, New Beetle, or Touareg through a town to collect as many Genuine Volkswagen Parts and Accessories as possible in under 60 seconds. Wintry obstacles, including snow-covered parked cars, penguins, and even the occasional polar bear, try to keep the player from getting back to the Volkswagen dealership in time.

“Wunder Rally provides a unique way to remind Volkswagen owners of all the things that can help keep their Volkswagen running at its best during the winter season,” said Dana Kovarik, Service Marketing Specialist, Volkswagen of America. “And with a little fun, and special deals available right now, we’re sure we can warm up the drivers’ spirits as well.”

Drivers can also visit their local Volkswagen dealership to pick up the latest parts, accessories, and Driver Gear for their Volkswagen. The Volkswagen Wunder Rally game and the “It’s A VW Winter Wunderland!” national promotion runs now until February 28, 2010.
