    THIS IS BIG!!!

    This year EVVO is teaming up with the organisers of VW Festival at Harewood House to attempt to gather the most amount of new beetles in one place at the same time. Our goal is to recreate the new beetle logo out of our cars and in the process setting a UK record! The attempt will be submitted to Guiness so it will be official :D

    This is truly historic for the new beetle and vw festival are backing us all the way. An EVVO camping village will be erected for the weekend so we can all enjoy the record attempt while enjoying each other's company.

    We are expecting beetles to attend from all over Europe so this is going to be like nothing the UK has seen before.

    For those travelling from Europe free tickets, help with accommodation and even set up camping for you so you don't have to bring anything with you.

    If you own a new beetle you need to be in this part of HISTORY!!!

    See the EVVO Facebook page for more details

    The weekend is 14-16Aug15

    John and I took the same ferry last year ... It was ok

    We stayed with the cars until everyone had parked up and left ... Then we were first to the cars in the morning ... All was good :D

    Hey

    Be sure to register your attendance on the vw festival website :D

    The is a post on the forum called 2015 shows listing some of the events we have targeted for 2015 ... We are aiming to increase on what we attended in 2014.

    All members are encouraged to take the lead with monthly regional meets and shows ... This would help more shows to be attended by EVVO and in many more locations around the UK.
