VW Action 31st Aug - Sunday 2nd Sept 2012

Only a week after returning from Germany and we were off again, this time to VW Action at Santa Pod Raceway! We headed up to Poddington on the Friday after work under grey skys and arrived at about 9:30pm. As we set up camp, although warm, it started to spit with rain, was it going to be another wet VW event at the Pod?
No it wasn't, on the Saturday morning the clouds soon cleared and the sun came out for the whole day, insuring that the EDV (every day) Concours and the track action remained undisturbed.
Throughout the weekend were Poi Circus workshops, pin striping seminars from Simon ‘Nefarious’ Pollock and live Graffiti art by  The Funk Doctors.
Sunday was cloudy with a very few sunny breaks but no rain so all was good for the main Concours D’Elegance and Custom Concours displays. With a massive turn out of air and water cooled VW's there was something for everyone.
Entertainment wise. Vision Tech Beats smashed the main stage Friday night and on the Saturday saw the Happy Days themed Rock n Roll night and the Rockabilly band the Q Tips in the Marquee, the 925's playing in the Fuellers bar and Kludo White's excellent Campervan Radio Band playing the marquee on the Sunday afternoon.   
We had a great time at VW Action as usual, it never disappoints.
