Dubworth, Oulton Park 6-8th May 2016

Post by Chino » 16th December 2015 - 8:06pm

Hi everyone, this is a new show for 2016 featuring camping, evening entertainment, on-track action as well and show and shine. More details to follow (I'm still in the early days of organising it), but I will certainly be keeping space aside for a Type 3&4 Club stand, please register your interest :)

Tickets on sale January!

Yep, think I've got the parade lap sorted, who fancies tasking their type 3/4 around the circuit? :)

It is Peter, in 8EMO.
That's Bengt Jansson just about hanging on to the Notch - Oulton Park (Lodge) 1963 RAC Rally.
I think my favorite Type 3 picture ever!

Would be up for the camping. :D

It's a very cool pic :)
I suspect I'll be running around in high-vis most of the day so I imagine a beer and food will be most needed after that!

I've taken my 412 round Croft :D , only at parade lap speeds though.

Have you seen the varied and positive camber on that notch :!: :shock: , not one of the wheels in pointing where you would want it to be :D

I'd love to be there, but don't know my plans for 2016 yet. If I do get to go I know a couple of guys from the FunCup so it would be catch up with them as well.

Very nice having an other half that works at Oulton :thumbsup:

Yes I think we'll be restricted to parade speeds, but i imagine that's the best way! That photo in particular of lodge corner at oulton with the notch is great, I'll pass it onto oulton as they're big geeks about historic racing.
Hoping to have the website live and tickets on sale early January for this. At this point I imagine I'll be working my rear off on it :)

Yes Peter, I need to get MSV to alter it on their site, but weekend ticket holders have access to camp Friday afternoon/evening.

Looks like 4 visits to Oulton Park this year for me, I really do need to get the 412LS tickover problem fixed or maybe even the T25 (proper air cooled one with type 4 engine) restored so we can camp. :)

The show and shine categories are finalised and as follows:

-Best in show Aircooled
-Best in show Watercooled
-Best 50's vehicle
-Best 60's vehicle
-Best 70's vehicle
-Best 80's vehicle
-Best 90's vehicle
-Best Bug
-Best Bus
-Best Ghia/Type 3/Type 4/Other VW (or coachbuild)
-Best Buggy/Baja/Kit Car
-Best Rat
-Best Mk1 Watercooled (of any classic VAG group vehicle, Golf, Passat, Polo, Audi 80 etc.)
-Best Mk2 Watercooled (of any classic VAG group vehicle Golf, Passat, Polo, Audi 80 etc.))
-Best Mk3 Watercooled (of any classic VAG group vehicle Golf, Passat, Polo, Audi 80 etc.))
-Best Non-VW (Audi/Porsche/etc)

It is a classic show and shine, so all vehicles must be 20years old, or older. This will be rolling, so gradually more modern vehicles will be included year by year. We spent a lot of time devising these categories...basically most vehicles will be eligible for 2 or 3 categories. You could win your decade, vehicle banding or best of aircooled or watercooled :)

If anyone would like to be involved in the Show and shine, please drop an email to kate@dubworth.co.uk :)

Well the applicants are coming in for the show and shine, but I've not had any Type 3's or 4's yet...obviously I can't enter mine! Come on guys, no one fancy show and shine and a parade lap?

Well the 412LS is fixed so there's a good chance I'll be turning up.

It'll be nice to add an Oulton parade lap to the one she's already done at Croft :)
