The historic Titanic Dry Dock and Pump House played host to this year’s exceptionally busy Titanic Dubs.   Running for a decade now by GTI NI, this show normally signifies the end of a busy car show season, but of course due to the Coronavirus pandemic it turned out to be one of the highlights of the entire year.

The central Belfast location is great for a show that in one area has restomod Beetles, another modified Caddy vans, bagged Golfs and Jettas elsewhere and VW Buses ready to camp out!  Trade stands and refreshments turn it into a family all day affair and this particular Saturday at the end of September was unseasonably warm and dry to boot.  

It’s not just members of the Volkswagen Audi Group stable invited to Titanic Dubs now either.  With the criteria slightly tempered we now get to see superb examples of other German marques such as this stunning E46 M3.

A well deserved car of the show went to this red Mk1 Golf GTi.

Show runners Nigel Lamont and Gethin Evans finished the event with a prize giving of suitably apt Titanic inspired trophies for the winners, and promising the return of their flagship show Dubshed in 2022.  We look forward to it.
