The traditional season closer is almost upon us, Sluff is on Sunday 9th November at its usual Montem Leisure Centre, Montem Lane, Slough (SL1 2QG for all you Tom-Tom-ers). MAP

Doors open from 9am and best be there early if you want to park within a reasonable Sunday morning stagger from the hall!

VW Action Gallery

It's been a while but here's a few snaps from VW Action. (click on pics for bigger versions)

Ginga arriving on Friday

Alex and Ginga had their Beetles on track and were joined by Ian who had just finished lashing together a turbo 1641 engine for his Beetle. Pics are from the Saturday evening session. Unfortunately Sunday was a wash out.

Ginga, fastest time: 14.7 sec @ 91mph

Alex, fastest time: 14.1 sec

Ian, fastest time: 15.4 sec

Alex on YouTube, beating the Jagerbug.

Cris was up with the full tribe in his Splitscreen camper, star of its own resto-thread on the SSVC Forum
Sunday Splitscreen line up

Baby Bootle was in the Back To 89 line ups on Saturday and Sunday.

We had good weather on Friday and Saturday so a wet Sunday didn't seem so bad.
That's it for weekend shows this year, next up is Slough Swapmeet on November 9th although we're working on some extra track time before the season's out...
