GTi Festival 2018

WELCOME TO GTI FESTIVAL

Over the years, from the very first GTI Festival events in the late 1980s, the shows have attracted hordes of Volkswagen enthusiasts to several different venues around the UK. The GTI Festival and GTI International were for a decade or more, just about the only specialist water cooled VW events of the year. Now, we have a busy show calendar. The GTI Festival has moved its date to the end of that busy calendar, to establish a Final Fling season finale, before the time comes to put cars away for the close season, or pull them apart for mods or winter rebuilds.

The GTI Festival – Season Finale is for enthusiasts of all VAG marques, SEAT, Skoda, Audi and of course Volkswagen. Now the Volkswagen Group includes Lamborghini, Bentley and Bugatti too, but the closest we will probably come to seeing any of those will be Bentley rims shoehorned under late Golf arches!

The GTI Festival is a show where all VAG vehicles are welcome with open arms. All clubs are invited to display during the day, and after a very well received revamp of the show layout, the clubs area is now easily able to accommodate the 40+ clubs who regularly attend the event. If you want your club to be part of the show, you need to act fast. The earliest club bookings get pride of place, and we expect to see a huge number of clubs and registers represented, so get in early! To book club displays call 01279 725252 or email us.

Show & Shine

The GTI Festival Show & Shine has a massive number of awards including Best Audi, Best Skoda, Best SEAT, and Best VW, Best Engineering, Best Paint, Best Engine, Best Van and many more. There are also 'top twenty' trophies open to all marques. Full details are available via the GTI Festival 'Show & Shine' link.

The Santa Pod Quarter Mile

Only VAG vehicles are permitted on the hallowed Santa Pod quarter-mile at the GTI Festival, and as pioneered by NAS Events, your signing on fee is for the entire day, not just one or two runs. Awards on the track include quickest VW, Audi, SEAT and Skoda, as well as a number of awards based on engine sizes. At Santa Pod, you are driving on a superb purpose built surface, and using world record standard calibrated timing. The Santa Pod marshalls and safety teams are the most practiced and efficient staff in Europe. Basically, you are getting the absolute best available when you sprint at the GTI Festival or GTI Spring Festival.

Many other elements of GTi Festival are being planned, so please check back here often for the latest updates. Bookmark this site now and follow NAS Events on Facebook.

* Under 13s are admitted for free when accompanied by an adult.

VW Action 2018

WELCOME TO VW ACTION 2018

Friday 31st August - Sunday 2nd September 2018
Santa Pod Raceway, Wellingborough, Northants. NN29 7XA

VW Action is the longest running weekend VW Show in the world - now in its 42nd year!!! The show has in one form or another been the true 'Jewel in the Crown' of UK VW events, from its early days at Stoneleigh, the NAS Stoneleigh shows, the period of its residency at Peterborough, at Herts County Showground, and now at Santa Pod. The last decade at 'The Pod' have produced quite exceptional shows, and 2017's event continued to raise the bar.

The 'Masquerade Ball' theme, complete with its 'West End' big budget stage set that transformed the marquee into a cross between 'Strictly Come Dancing' and a slightly twisted 'Viennese Palace' was embraced by all and the show received acclaim from all who attended.

2018 will continue the great tradition of VW Action delivering the absolute best event for the true VW enthusiast. 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.

2018 will see a 'Life On Mars' theme - with Saturday evening's stage dressed as a Martian landscape. The fancy dress possibilities for this year are as multi-faceted as the late, great David Bowie himself.

One avenue could be 'Alien Life Forms', 'Spacemen', 'Martians', 'War Of The Worlds' etc., while another lends itself to follow the two hugely successful TV series 'Life On Mars' and 'Ashes To Ashes' with visitors possibly following the 70s 'TV Cops' look, - 'The Sweeney', 'Minder', 'The Professionals' or anything that represents those great 70s and early 80s 'TV Cop Shows' that featured all those wonderful car chases - or, visitors could even come as 'Bowie' himself, following that whole 70s 'Glam' look

Waxstock 2018

Waxstock is held in the Exhibition Hall at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry. The postcode is CV6 6GE and the Arena is well signposted and close to major routes, including the M1, M6 and M40. Getting to Waxstock has never been easier.

GETTING THERE

You can find detailed travel information and directions here.

The show opens at 9.30am on Sunday 22nd July 2018 and closes at 4.30pm on the same day. It is only open to the public during these times and it is a ticketed event (via wristband).

 

Free parking. Parking at the event has been subsidised by us, the show organisers, to ensure that no parking charges apply. DO NOT pay for car parking at the ticket machines on-site. The barrier will open automatically on show day when you leave the event.

All car parking will be on hard-standing areas, static cars should be aware that there is moderate but manageable traffic calming. Ricoh Arena has good facilities for disabled visitors and parking, but please remember that there is no camping at the venue and dogs are not allowed (apart from guide dogs for the sight- or hearing-impaired).

Please note that we have additional car parking for 2018, due to car park congestion in 2017. However, we ask all traders and visitors to park courteously and to take up no more than one car parking space.

STAYING OVER

There is no camping at the venue – sorry tent lovers and hardcore yurters. So why not stay overnight at the 4-star DoubleTree by Hilton hotel, on-site at Ricoh Arena? It’s also just a few metres away from the 24 hour Grosvenor Casino, as well as the show hall. Please note that it may be expensive on the Saturday night due to demand. Book here.

If you don't like the pricing, or all rooms have been sold at the DoubleTree, there will still be a variety of ‘off-site’ hotels in the surrounding area to choose from, like:
Book Royal Court Hotel & Spa Coventry here
Book Days Inn Corley - Nec (M6) here
Book Premiere Classe Coventry here
Book Coventry Hill Hotel here
All within a short drive/uber of Ricoh Arena.

Should you want a drink or evening meal, there are plenty of options: The Mill Bar and Brasserie, Faradays Restaurant and the Grosvenor Casino (including club and bar). Official ID required for entrance into the Casino, over 18s only.

Plus, there is a large selection of restaurants and shops in the nearby retail park (approx. 5 mins walk from the Arena) including Pizza Hut, Frankie and Benny’s, Chiquito etc.

Goodwood Festival of Speed 2018

In what’s become an annual tradition at the Festival, the catch-all theme creates numerous opportunities to celebrate motoring’s and motorsport’s greatest pioneers and heroes, as well as the most iconic road-going and competition machines – on two and four wheels.

And in 2018 we’re all set for a dramatic celebration of the event itself. ‘Festival of Speed – The Silver Jubilee’ will, of course, remain faithful to the event’s heritage by bringing together racers of all shapes and sizes – on the hill and forest rally stage – from more than 100 years of motorsport endeavour, but will feature extra dimensions that reflect the best moments from the past quarter of a century.

Detailed plans are already underway to take a deliberate and nostalgic journey back over the event’s past 25 years, charting its humble, single-day debut on June 20th 1993, to the massive global televised phenomenon it’s become.

Event host the Duke of Richmond will choose his 25 favourite moments from the first 25 events – personal highlights that he considers landmarks in the Festival's history. His choices and the cars and drivers that created them will be woven into the programme in July.

Further exciting celebrations and memorable moments, involving the brands, manufacturers, teams, cars and drivers that have shaped the event, will be announced in the coming months.

The 2018 season will be a bumper year of celebrations for Goodwood as we also celebrate the 20th Anniversary of both the GRRC (Goodwood Road Racing Club) and the Goodwood Revival at the Motor Circuit, which takes place on September 7-9.

Tickets for FOS 2018 are on sale now! For more information click here.

VAG at the Manor 2018

The Vibe

The shows vibe is the thing people were most impressed with over the last 2 years. “Chilled out”, “Relaxed”, “Friendly” and “inclusive” were a common theme in the feedback we received. Because of this we are going with the same formula for 2018, but the BIG news is that for the last few months we have been visiting venues around the South that tick all the boxes we need to grow the show. We are pleased to announce that VAG at the Manors new home for 2018 will be Dinton Pastures, Reading. To tell you a little about the venue… We shall be using the now retired 45 acre golf course, which overlooks the venues private boating lake. It offers a level entrance from Sandford lane and the venue gives us better scope for the future as we have total food and beverage rights and space to grow the event.

The idea behind the show is to bring all marques and all ages of VAG cars together in one amazing setting. It’s all about the effort that you guys and girls put into your rides, whether it’s a spotless split, a slammed S3 or a slick Seat, we appreciate them all!

Stanford hall 2018

Heritage

This year’s event will mark the 42nd anniversary of the Classic Volkswagen meeting universally known as simply “Stanford Hall”. You don’t clock up that number of shows unless you are doing something right, and since the first show way back in 1976 the emphasis has always been on putting on a great display of classic unmodified Volkswagens of all types, whether air-cooled or water-cooled. And not only that, we have always aimed to give great value for money, whether it’s in the entry prices or the fees for the trade stands.

Admission

£10.00

per adult and over 14s.

Children (aged up to 14) enter free.

Please note this does not cover admission to the house.

Awards will be handed out on the day for the certain cars (awards haven't been decided yet) get those cars spotless, may even do an award for dirtiest R32

Once the awards have been handed out around 2.30pm, The drive out will happen. I shall be mapping out a route for everyone to follow and with cameras on the route so we can get some awesome photos and videos of everyone's car. 

lets beat last years number of 116 cars

GTi Spring Festival 2018

WELCOME TO GTI SPRINGFEST
 

SANTA POD RACEWAY NN29 7XA

Over the years, from the very first GTI Festival events in the late 1980s, the shows have attracted hordes of Volkswagen enthusiasts to several different venues around the UK. The GTI Festival and 'Inters' were for a decade or more, just about the only specialist watercooled VW events of the year. Now, we have a busy show calendar.

The GTI Spring Festival is now established as the real 'season opener', and THE one day show for all enthusiasts of all VAG marques, SEAT, Skoda, Audi and of course Volkswagen. And now the Volkswagen Group includes Lamborghini, Bentley and Bugatti too! The GTI Spring Festival, is a show where all VAG vehicles are welcome with open arms. All clubs are invited to display during the day, and after a very well received revamp of the show layout, the clubs area is now able to accommodate in excess of the 40 clubs who regularly attend the event. If you want your club to be part of the show, you need to act fast. The earliest club bookings get pride of place, and we expect to see a huge number of clubs and registers represented, so please get in early! To book club displays call 01279 725252 or email us.

Show & Shine

The GTI Spring Festival Show & Shine has a massive number of awards including Best Audi, Best Skoda, Best SEAT, and Best VW, Best Engineering, Best Paint, Best Engine, Best Van and many more. There are also 'top twenty' trophies covering all the marques, and full details are available via the SPRINGfest 'Show & Shine' link.

The Santa Pod Quarter Mile

Only VAG vehicles are permitted on the hallowed Santa Pod quarter-mile at GTI Spring Festival, and as pioneered by NAS Events, your signing on fee is for the entire day, not just for one or two runs. Awards on the track include quickest VW, Audi, SEAT and Skoda, as well as a number of awards based on engine sizes. At Santa Pod, you are driving on a superb purpose built surface, and using world record standard calibrated timing. The Santa Pod marshalls and safety teams are the most practiced and efficient staff in Europe. Basically, you are getting the absolute best available when you sprint at GTI Spring Festival.

Many other elements of SPRINGfest are being planned, so please check back here often for the latest updates. Bookmark this site now and follow NAS Events on Facebook.
