Hot VAG at Castlewellan Show

31 Replies

GTI NI ran their long running Castlewellan show for VAG enthusiasts and friends again this year in the grounds of the Castle.  With soaring temperatures and sunny skies, there was a strong turnout of show cars, dub fans and petrolheads in general at this relaxed day out.

As with all GTINI events, I am always impressed by the variety of cars on show.  No hydraulic suspension or air suspension in sight on this immaculate Beetle, but it feels just as at home as the latest stanced Golfs and Sciroccos.

Mark Stewart’s Audi RS4 in it’s custom pale green coachwork certainly turned heads.

As did this Seat Exeo which when fully dropped was like looking at a real life photoshop with the enormous rims concealed engulfed by the rear quarter.

I followed this tit on the M1 into Belfast yesterday , I can only assume he was on his way home from the show or to get new tyres. His back wheels were wobbling like mad, but that didn't matter to camberking http://i145.photobucket.com/albums/r215/geoff-tate/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-07/IMG-20150705-WA0000.jpg

100% my favourite show of the year. Very little bullshit attitude, lots of older stuff on display and a great setting.

I didn't really feel the hype. My first time there and despite having my little twins with me I was on my own, perhaps that's why I didn't feel the vibe. Plenty of nice cars though
