I know it's a long way off but as the organisers have already gone live with the new website and ticket sales are now open I thought I'd throw this post up and hopefully get a bigger turn out to this event. The show is a really nice chilled out weekend set in the grounds of caldicot castle and great for families too with the ever popular show and shine being held on the Sunday, Tickets do sell out fast for this one and once there gone that's it, no tickets are available on the gates. Club camping available and from past experience we always get allocated a decent size plot. So get your names down if you would be attending and lets make 2014 a big turn out.

VR6Pete posted a topic in Previous EventsOver 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 â€“ 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. Who's up for this ? last show of the year before our national meet... Cheers, Pete

BROOKLANDS - the world™s first purpose-built motor racing circuit, constructed at Weybridge, Surrey in 1907 - was more than a great sporting arena. Brooklands was the birthplace of British motorsport and aviation, home of Concorde and the site of many engineering and technological achievements throughout eight decades of the 20th century. The Museum displays a wide range of Brooklands-related motoring and aviation exhibits ranging from giant racing cars, motorcycles and bicycles to an unparalleled collection of Hawker and Vickers/ BAC-built aircraft, including the Second World War Wellington Bomber, Viking, Varsity, Viscount, Vanguard, VC10, BAC One-Eleven and the only Concorde with public access in South East England. Brooklands Museum Trust is an independent charitable trust whose aims are to preserve and interpret the heritage of Brooklands and to use that heritage to inspire and educate future generations. There will be an opportunity to park your VR6 / R32 on the famous banked track of the Brooklands circuit for a great photo opportunity at an additional cost of £10 per car. NOTE: This is subject to weather conditions and if it is raining then unfortunately the circuit will not be open for us use.

The London Bus Museum houses a remarkable collection of around 35 buses and coaches, the largest collection of working historic London buses in the world. About two thirds are owned by the Trust and the remainder by individual members. Some buses have been fully restored and have won many awards, while others will be restored in the restoration workshops in the new building. The vehicles are all of London origin and date from about 1875 to 1979 and are arranged in a timeline from the early horse bus to more modern buses similar to those on Londonâ€™s streets today. Items of street furniture and other artefacts and memorabilia related to bus operations in London are also on display, from uniforms to ticket machines, medals, signs and examples of works of art for which London Transport received many awards. The new London Bus Museum is a must for enthusiasts and families alike and has been incorporated into the well-established Brooklands Education Programme. There will also be the opportunity to ride on vintage bus services at special events through the year.
