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.
