The Last Deva Dubs

Two years later than planned, the final Deva Dubs n Rods was held at West Mids Showground, Shrewsbury. The show was due to take place in 2020, but as with everything planned for 2020… COVID did its thing.

The organisers of the show didn’t want to disappear without a last hurrah, so it was bumped from 2020 and again in 2021. We finally got the go-ahead for 2022.

Quiet Trade Areas

We headed to the show straight

Stanford Hall VW Show 2022

It was great to kick off the year with another fantastic Stanford Hall VW show, although it was damp to start with, it didn’t put people off, judging by the numbers I noticed around the show.

Our Club Stand was well stocked with VW merchandise & had a display of various vehicles.

A TAGIO took the stand at the front while a Trekker or Thing had much interest at the side.

There was an unusual vehicle in the For Sale pitch, a MIAG

Top Day at Tatton

Back in August, we popped along to one of our favourite VW shows, Tatton Park. In the run-up to the show, we didn’t know whether it would go ahead or not. Several other shows had pulled the plug late in the day, so we were pleased when the day arrived and we could head over to Cheshire for our first show as a club for 18 months.

As Tatton Park is a one day show, we were up bright and early on

VW Drive-in Festival – 5th & 6th June 2021

VW Drive-in Festival – 5th & 6th June 2021

Pop this date in your diary… 5th & 6th June 2021. We’re inviting all our members along to the inaugural Volkswagen Owners Club of Great Britain Drive-in Festival.

Yes, you read that right, we’re bringing you our very own VW Drive-in Festival. The start of 2021 and pretty much the entirety of 2020 hasn’t been kind to the VW show scene. We’ve already lost some great shows from our calendar. So when we were offered the opportunity to host our own

DubFreeze 2020

Storm Dennis couldn’t keep us from paying our annual pilgrimage to DubFreeze, although it did throw a few obstacles in our way.

We set off early Sunday morning from Sheffield in the T-Cross that we had borrowed from VW. The roads in South Yorkshire were fine, the winds were not too blustery, nor was there much in the way of precipitation.

Flooded Roads

As we neared the County Showground in Staffordshire, and deviated from the main A roads, things started to worsen. We

VW T-Cross R-Line 1.0TSI 115PS 7-Speed DSG

So this is the T-Cross R-Line, 1 litre petrol, 115 ps, DSG. It’s the first time I have driven a DSG. And I quite like it.

I’m a bit of a fan of small cars. I’ve owned a few Polo’s and Lupo’s over the years, so when the opportunity arose to have a go in VWs smallest SUV, I was a little bit excited. 

We currently own a VW Tiguan, so we’re quite familiar with VWs SUV range, but the T-Cross
