GTI International Moves to Stratford-upon-Avon

Published 20 June 2013

GTI International, Britain’s biggest event for enthusiasts of high-performance Volkswagen Group cars will take place this year at the Shakespeare County Raceway, near Stratford-upon-Avon from 6-7 July.

Last year’s 25th event was a huge success, with masses of complimentary feedback from all areas of the press, clubs, trade and visitors alike. This year promises to be even better, with the added advantage of a venue that provides a world-class drag strip, along with a 3000-seater grandstand.

GTI International offers a wide range of features.  The main focus of attention is the quarter-mile sprint track where visitors to the event can test the acceleration of their cars against the clock on a proper drag strip with world-class timing. The strip will also see demo runs from many of the country’s top tuning companies, as well as the Orange Pop drag car and members of the Volkswagen Drag Racing Club.

For those who prefer to polish their cars, the Show ’n’ Shine and Concours competition, sponsored this year by Autoglym, attracts hundreds of the best-kept Volkswagens in Britain and Europe, from original and restored concours classics to highly modified custom cars.

GTI International 2013 will also offer one of the first opportunities to see the brand-new seventh-generation Golf GTI and the GTI Cabriolet, courtesy of Volkswagen UK.
