In association with JUST KAMPERS

The first ever Volksworld Camper & Bus Show takes place at the famous Santa Pod Raceway over the weekend of 25th to 27th April 2008. A 'show within a show' the event takes advantage of the already hugely successful Big Bang weekend but with its own areas witthinn the venue and its own identity. Three days of VW fun in the sun with great racing, music and comedy at the home of European Drag Racing!

Camping is the best way to kick off the 2008 VW festival season, so if you just want to spend a weekend chillin' with thousands of other VW owners or you want to take your ride down the strip before watching the pros show how it's done before enjoying the evening's entertainment each night, tne, Santa Pod Raceway is the place to be.

SO WHAT'S ON?

Firstly, a whole host of activities and Camper 'games' including:

A special lowering display courtesy of Type Two Detectives
A pin-striping demonstration from Nefarious

JUST KAMPERS 'CAMPERVAN' GAMES
A Ready Steady Cook style competition where entrants will be presented with a bag of ingredients and told to whip up something tasty in the confines of their own camper.
Awning Erection
Driving Tests (intricate timed course)
Bus Pull (VW's strongest Man)
Smoothest Drive (bucket of water on roof)

SHOW & SHINE COMPETITION - Whether you have a classic Camper that looks fresh off the production line, a crazy modified Bus or anything in between, make your way over to the Show & Shine area. We've got top VW experts to do the judging and we're looking for the best VWs in the UK. Stock or modified, air or water cooled, new or old, get your car entered!

ON THE DRAG STRIP
VW-only Run What Ya Brung (Saturday) - Take your own VW on the Drag Strip on Saturday! Learn the basics of Drag Racing, beat your mates and test your car in a safe and legal environment. All drivers must bring a valid DVLA Driving Licence to sign on. Drivers of soft-tops and cars quicker than 110mph will need to bring a crash-helmet.

Or . . . just sit in the Grandstands or on the grassy bank and watch the featured battle of the buses with BWA (Buses With Attitude) vs USB (Ultimate Street Bays) alongside other radical or daily driven Buses and Campers.

On Sunday things get serious on the Drag Strip with the VWDRC (Volkswagen Drag Racing Club) classes including VW Sportsman, VW Pro and VW Alternate Engine. This weekend will also be a championship round for the Hot Rods of Super Modified, Street Eliminator and Outlaw Anglias.

Look out too for the Fireforce Jet Car - the fastest Jet Car on the planet.

I see that in the RWYB section is having a fastest beetle, split etc etc this year.
Does this mean that a vwdrc, Vw sportsmen, pro etc etc class could just sign into RWYB along with everyone and walk away a the trophy hands down leaving all the 'normal' rwybers in the weeds to say.
Would i be excluded as im in the BWA say?
That would seem a little unfair no ?? or not??
Good idea though ill have a go:D

No . . . because quick VWDRC cars tend not to be road legal ;)
