Go Back   VW Forum - VZi, Europe's largest VW, community and sales > Community > Chat/Discussion

Chat/Discussion Kind of like a VW club online - you can sit in our virtual pub and talk about whatever you want to. All opinions are valid, but please no insulting (other than to our intelligence,) abusive or libellous posts. Please feel free to post your opinion on any given subject, but also be aware that others have the equal right to disagree with you - and some will certainly tell you so. No 'For Sale' or 'Want To Buy' ads, plugs for your business, links to 'for sale' ads or Ebay links to your (or your mate's) auction (please use the VZi 'Classifieds' section) - this also includes thinly veiled "What's my car worth?" threads too (please use the 'Dude! What's My Car Worth?' forum) - and please don't use just to post links to other VW forums or websites - we are aware that other sites exist (obviously), but blatant 'plugs' (poaching) will simply be deleted.

Default VW ACTION 2020 CANCELLED - BUT NOT ALL BAD NEWS



(I've correctly posted this in the Show Scene forum - but as many folk have already ordered advanced tickets, I thought it might help get the information out to them a bit quicker.)



After much deliberation and soul-searching, we have decided that the VW Action event will not take place in 2020. This is not a decision we have taken lightly, but given the circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic, we feel there is no way we could stage the event and do it justice.

We waited as long as we could to give the show a chance of happening, but with so many restrictions still in place, there is no way we could safely include many of the attractions that help create that VW Action atmosphere.

We would prefer to return in 2021 and (hopefully) produce an event that will match or surpass previous VW Action events at Santa Pod.

Despite suffering financially ourselves, we are also very, very aware that Santa Pod Raceway has been hit extremely hard financially this year and would prefer to hand over our dates/weekend to them, in the hope it may help them recoup some much-needed income in the final months of this season.

To that end, Santa Pod Raceway are themselves, now staging a more laid-back/chilled (and ’socially-distancing’) VW event - VW BREAKOUT over the weekend of 4th-6th September - www.santapod.co.uk/vwbreakout.php

Please support this event if you can. It won’t be 'VW Action’ - but it should help give ‘dubbers their ‘fix’ of VW Drag Racing, Show & Shine and Camping.

VW BREAKOUT - 4th-6th September 2020
Santa Pod is back, offering VW fans a one-off unique event for this year; VW Breakout is a three-day relaxed weekend. With all the elements of the shows we all know and love – but scaled down! Quarter-mile track action featuring VW Drag Racing and RWYB, alongside Show & Shine, Traders, Fun Fair and Bar meaning you can enjoy the last of those summer evenings camping with friends!
Keep an eye on the website for more updates www.santapod.co.uk/vwbreakout.php

Kids under 13 go FREE

Tickets Coming Soon – www.santapodtickets.com


ADVANCE TICKET HOLDERS
All of those who ordered VW Action advance tickets will receive an email from Santa Pod explaining how to claim your credit. Please follow their instructions carefully.

We realise many of you will be disappointed, but we hope you understand our decision and look forward to seeing you all at VW Action in 2021.

Stay safe. Love to all.

NAS Events

Hi Danny,

The VW Breakout event is nothing to do with me (or NAS Events) dude - it's a totally Santa Pod event.

I'll make a call next Monday though - see what I can sort out.

Stay safe mate.

Sorry to hear this, though I'm sure it's the right thing to do. Bigger and better next year!

On a selfish level, it's bought me some more time
