Edition 38 2013

Edition 38 needs no introduction to VAG enthusiasts throughout Europe. The annual show brings together the best show cars in Europe (and their owners) for a weekend of camping, socialising and partying in the infamous ‘rave tent’.

The event was held across the main show field, camping grounds and spilled out into the car park. Wherever you turned you were surrounded by top quality motors and enthusiastic owners willing to chat about the intricate details of the build that many had taken on themselves.

The main stage provided a unique aspect, literally providing a platform to allow people the chance to let the show cars come to them for a change! The tunes were pumping and the Edition 38 staff kept the interviews flowing as owners took the chance to share stories about their pride and joy.

The perimeter of the show field was lined with trade stands giving owners the chance to chat with the experts about how to create the perfect look in their designated field. With so much inspiration and expertise surrounding everyone, we hope to see the results of some of these conversations next year!

This year the team struck it lucky as the weather held out all weekend, leading to many blazing-red faces by the time Sunday morning arrived – ours included! The plus side of such decent weather however, is that it allowed the show and shine to run smoothly and gave spectators the chance to admire the standard of the vehicles rain-free for a change.

All in all we had a great weekend, despite the burn, and would highly recommend any VAG enthusiast makes the trip at least once, you won’t be disappointed. It certainly won’t be our last Edition!
