Do you like VW’s? Have a love of Campervans? Enjoy drag racing and high speed action? Well keep reading on as this year’s Big Bang show was packed full of family fun and live action entertainment – music to all enthusiasts ears this weekend!

VW Camper Van Line Up

With the “Run What Ya Brung” tearing up the tarmac on Saturday, the track saw air-cooled and water-cooled classes take to the strip in some neck-on-neck action. Some very surprising moments from the track – we witnessed a VW Camper T1 go against a VW Polo MK 1 – everyone thought the same thing “Oh, the Polo will win!” How wrong we all were! The T1 ripped up the track making the Polo seem as if it was travelling at a snail’s pace – brilliant! Below is the same Polo going up against a VW Corrado:

The atmosphere of the show was very chilled and relaxed, exactly what one  expects from a VW show. All VW enthusiasts seem to have a “laid-back” attitude to things which made it such an enjoyable show.

The Saturday also saw BMX’ers, skateboarders, roller-bladers and runners take to the track in a large human race up and down the Santa Pod track with winners from each class being awarded – embracing the family experience to a completely different level!

People On Track

Sunday soon approached with more track action – a variety of different series were present. The superbikes were a sight not to be missed and neither was the drag car series. The street classes also produced some very eye-opening moments with some extremely quick times.
