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.

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.

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.

The most successful European car, the Golf is celebrating its 45th Birthday.

Best Seller

On 29 March 1974, the Volkswagen plant in Wolfsburg officially started production of what would become its best-seller. Back then, nobody at Volkswagen had any idea that the successor to the legendary Beetle would end up selling more than 35 million units all over the world – and still selling to this day. In purely mathematical terms, a new Golf has been ordered somewhere
