The Volksworld Show, Sandown Park, 28th-29th March 2015

Posted by volkszone

Sat 28th – Sun 29th March
Sandown Park Racecourse, Esher, Surrey, KT10 9AJ

This year marks the 60th anniversary of the Karmann Ghia, and of course naturally an historic moment like this couldn’t pass by without a celebration.  Show sponsors VW Heritage have succeeded in persuading the Karmann Museum in Germany to loan, ship and display three prototypes in a special display area at the show. Cars include 1953 Karmann Ghia prototype, the never-seen before 1962 design study and the Type 34 Razor which are really going to blow you away. They are also supplying an original 1949 cut-away Beetle that illustrates how a Beetle is put together and what a fantastic piece of design it was.

Keith Seume, original editor of VolksWorld is back on board to help celebrate the 40th anniversary of Cal Look. The display organised is guaranteed to delight fans of fast moving, nose down Beetles. Definitive examples of the original 70s style have been brought together to create a homage to the term, ‘Califorina Look’ first coined by Hot VWs magazine four decades ago.

Some of you may already have heard the great news, but if you haven’t then let us be the first to tell you…. DUB AID IS BACK!

Dub Aid 4 will be held at Towcester Race Course in Northamptonshire on the 20th – 22nd March 2015.

London Volksfest is back!

Posted by volkszone

North Weald Airfield
Near Harlow, Essex
Junction 7 M11

After an absence of two years, LONDON VOLKSFEST IS BACK!

The venue of North Weald, and mid-July date, have seen some of the most enjoyable one day VW shows anywhere in the UK – and Volksfest will be reborn for 2014 – though continuing with its previous firmly developed style and content, to provide a consistently great day out for all VW enthusiasts. The first Volksfest was one of the most popular of the early ‘new wave’ of VW events, and this show, the direct descendent of the original Volksfest, is always similarly well received.

Volksfest has always celebrated all things VW, and never including any major content which was not highly VW oriented. The show made a massive leap forward in the last few of years, with the return of VW drag racing, in the form of a ‘Run What You Brung’ meeting. This enables any visitors with their driving licence and the signing on fee to run their own vehicle on the dragstrip. Without losing the focus on VWs, it is fantastic to see our cars alongside all-comers, from Hot Rods, or Classic Fords, to Rolls Royces on the track. This year the formula will be much the same, with the dragstrip, the superb Show and Shine, which just gets better and better, The Traders, Autojumble, Cars for Sale, Bar and Food Area, Club Displays, in fact everything needed for a hugely enjoyable VW day out.
