***VW Action*** (important changes for the club!!)

Post by rikki james » Mon Jul 28, 2014 3:55 pm

This year for the first time ever the very nice people at VW Action http://www.vwaction.com/vwaction/ have designated a specific space/plot for SSVC club camping. The location is adjacent to the main display arena, in the best location possible!! In order to hang on to this very desirable camping area we need to fill it! On arrival to the event, please make your way to our provided camping space and make sure you mention that you are parking/camping with the SSCV, you will be directed accordingly. This is a great opportunity for us as we hardly have to move for the club displays each day!

If you check out the web site you will also notice that VW Action have hired the drag strip fort the whole weekend! This means that anyone with a bus can participate, or any WV for that matter ;-) Which means that the queuing time to race will be reduced considerably! The BWA have a dedicated "pits" area and will be racing throughout the whole weekend (records will be broken!!!). Incidentally you don't need to have a quick bus to "have a go", all you need is a driving license! The more the merrier! My first ever run was with a 1500 single port bus, I ran a 27 second quarter and I was over the moon! :cheers:

This is going to be a proper VW show for proper VW enthusiast so please make the effort and support the event/your club with us!

Please add yourself to the list if you're going participate, I'll make a start......

***UPDATE****
As discussed - here's the Action FB Page: https://www.facebook.com/VWAction

You should be able to see the pics of the cars that are coming with having a FB account.

Some blurb:

NEW FOR 2014!! VW-ONLY RWYB (plus invited Pro Race Cars) AT VW ACTION

YES, THAT'S RIGHT... THE TRACK ACTION AT VW ACTION 2014 BOTH DAYS (AND THE NIGHT) - WILL BE VAG ONLY (and invited Pro Race Cars.)

After years of trying, we have managed to 'buy' the track for the weekend - basically we have to make up any shortfall that the regular RWYB would have earned Santa Pod. This is costing a fair chunk - so, please spread the word - we really need your support here guys.

It means no more Saxos, Clios, Beemers, Ricers or Bikes and Sunday's Peak Performance is now replaced with a VAG-Only (and invited Pro
Cars) RWYB.

2013 saw VW Action live up to its name once again, with many cars from the European mainland and a large field of extremely quick race and street VWs including Cal-Lookers from the JG54 Greenhearts and SAS Rennwagens, A.C.E., OF/F and VWDRC racecars along with the Split Buses of the BWA and Bays of the USB.

This year we expect to see a similarly strong field of British and European VWs. The Run What You Brung/Test and Tune session will again take place during the Saturday daytime, where many VWs from Europe and the UK will feature amongst an open field with everything from Fuel cars to (VAG only) street cars taking part. Throughout Saturday you will be able to test and tune your own car on the dragstrip, just remember to bring your driving licence. (There is an additional 'signing on' fee to take part in this activity.)

NIGHT RACING £1000+ PRIZE FUND

The night racing at VW Action - without doubt most spectator's favourite session of the weekend - now has a prize fund, to be shared between the quickest VWs on the track on Saturday evening. The prize fund currently stands at £1000+ to be split amongst the quickest 10 VW cars and quickest 5 VW buses in this session.

VW ACTION £1000+ PRIZE FUND!
Runs made during the daytime on Saturday will count for the various VW Action Speed Clubs etc., but ONLY runs made during the official night racing session will attract prize money.

European cars visiting on free ferry tickets WILL be elegible.
