Dubtoberfest Festival 2016
Racing Team Vee had the honour of being asked to display the Sheane at Dubtoberfest at the weekend.
This is a great little festival for the VW camper van brigade, with a Bavarian theme and a family-friendly atmosphere, held at Throckmorton airfield near Pershore.
Displaying both the new JooVuu and RTV stickers in public for the first time, we joined Gary Richardson and David Leniewski with our three very different Vee’s on display.
With live music playing all through the day, loads of food on offer, a 2000hp ‘Mental Breakdown’ dragster, dog agility course, show & shine car competition, archery, and some rather nice partying each evening (in lederhosen, no less!), a great time was certainly had by all of us – and the equally friendly crowds of people seemed to be enjoying themselves just as much.
Some of them (including my beautiful fiancée, Julie) even got to experience riding on the Dodgems with a load of ultra-competitive Formula Vee racers!
It’s a great festival, still in its early days, and I’d heartily recommend it for next year! In fact, thinking about it, this has been the first festival I’ve ever attended!
Massive thanks to Damian Cottrell for the invite, organising things, and his hospitality! As a racer himself (and pretty good by all accounts) and being a local, it’d be good to see him back out on a grid again soon!
I’ll leave you with some pictures from the weekend.
