VW ACTION 2008 - Santa Pod Raceway - 29th - 31 August

Post by danny allen on Wed Jul 30, 2008 9:04 am




VW Action 2008 is set to be one of the most exciting VW shows in a very long time, and an event absolutely not to be missed. The move of VW Action to Santa Pod last year produced a show which was by common consent, one of the best VW Action events in recent memory. Make no mistake, the 2008 show will be epic! The show can only get better this year, as it continues its quest to defy the old adage that you can't please all of the people all of the time. VW Action is a show to which people are happy to bring their young family members, and yet which provides full on entertainment for all of its visitors, whatever their age or interests. We hear countless commendations from new visitors, and as much about the friendliness and hospitality of other show-goers as the quality of the show itself. In our view there is not a more entertaining and inclusive VW Show in the world. VW Action can be a weekend camped amongst like-minded enthusiasts, sitting, chilling, and meeting new friends, or one filled with live music from bands on the cusp of stardom, followed by the inimitable Jensen D Groover.

Saturday night this year features live bands throughout the evening, followed by two hours of Disco entertainment, before the 'Great Pyjama Party Sleepover'. It won't actually go on all night, but it will be time enough to have some, 'popcorn and lemonade', and watch yet another showing of the greatest of all cult movies, 'American Graffiti'.

VW Action 2007 delivered some of the best drag racing action at a VW show for years including VW night racing in the form of a repeat of the now legendary VW v V8 match-ups with the Outlaw Anglias and cars from the VWDRC, the most successful single make drag racing club in Europe. The dragstrip will once again host the BWA v USB (Busses With Attitude vs Ultimate Street Bays) and a huge number of drag racing VWs from the UK and Europe. The first VW event at a UK Dragstrip, the 1987 Bug Jam featured just four 'demo' cars, to give VW enthusiasts some idea of what drag racing was all about, but VW Action 2008 features another awesome array of the very fastest cars the sport has to offer. This has been made possible by the fact that VW Action is the week before the 'European Finals' , and a number of cars have taken the opportunity to get some testing in before they race in earnest the following weekend. There will be Top Fuel cars from across Europe, capable of running the quarter-mile in less than 5 seconds and at speeds in excess of 300mph. You will also be able to check out the Scandinavian Pro Stockers, the fastest 'doorslammers' around, and many other full-on V8 drag racers, testing for the next weekend. Throughout Sunday you will be able to test and tune your own car on the dragstrip, during the 'run what you brung' (RWYB) sessions, just remember to bring your driving licence. (There is an additional signing on fee to take part in this activity) There is also an exciting night time session on the Saturday night. This is by invite only so if you have a water-cooled car running quicker than 14.99 then let us and and you may find yourself running in one of the most exciting race sessions this year!!

VW Action has always been at the forefront of Show 'N' Shine/Concours events. For many years Action has been a leader, not a follower. A few years ago, the show broke with the tradition of a class based structure, for one simple reason. Too many great cars were leaving without a trophy, especially in the most hotly contested classes. The 'Top Twenty' format at Action has now been taken up by many other shows, as it is the means by which the greatest number of worthy cars are rewarded with a trophy. The scale of the VW Action Show 'N' Shine however, means that there are separate 'top twenty' prizewinners for Air Cooled and Water Cooled cars. The Show 'N' Shine Concours takes place on Sunday, with Saturday being reserved for the 'Everyday Vehicle Concours' a trailer queen free zone, exclusively for cars which see regular use on the road. None of the show car competitions at VW Action have an entry charge, so if your car attracts admiring glances, be sure to enter in the appropriate free Show 'N' Shine competition.


So, if you are visiting Action to show or race your car, to spend the weekend with fellow VW enthusiasts, to trade or buy parts, to party, or even all of the above, click on the buttons and check out the website to get more detailed information about elements of the show which is shaping up to be the best VW event of modern times, VW Action 2008 at Santa Pod Raceway, Friday 29th to Sunday 31st August 2008.
