VW lovers prepare to get on their marque

THIS is the ninth year for VW Warwick, and the event has grown into Australia's premier VW motorsport weekend.

The weekend program for Warwick begins with the traditional Saturday morning street parade and static display in the Warwick CBD at Leslie Park.

This is an excellent opportunity for all VWs, competing or spectating, to showcase their cars to the Warwick public.

It will also constitute some judging for the Show'n'Shine on Sunday.

The parade and display will be on show to enjoy from 9.30 until 11am.

Scrutineering happens back at the track from 11am until noon, after which there will be a drivers' briefing on the staging lanes. The briefing will run through the procedures and workings of the Warwick Dragway, and will also include a demonstration for first time drag racers on how the lights and staging process work. Unlimited practice and qualifying will follow the briefing from 1-5pm.

On Sunday, an additional hour of practice will be held in the morning from 9-10am, which will be followed by a four-round Round Robin competition with a final.

During the lunch break the VW Engine Pull competition will be held in the scrutineering bay.

Please refer to the program for more info.

The program should finish by 3pm.

Show'n'Shine, Swap Meet and Trade displays are also on the Sunday program.
