(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!
