VAG Cafe attended the VWCSA Krugersdorp Hillclimb…

It's been a few years since the history-rich Krugersdorp Hillclimb has been put together properly, and as you'd expect it was our mates at the Volkswagen Club of SA that pulled it off. Usually when the club holds something performance related I have to find a nice way of kakking on people for not supporting properly and then still complaining that there aren't enough events for fast cars. At this particular event, around 80 drivers made the effort and the result was an awesome event that had everyone asking one...

Missed #DubRun 2k18? VAG Cafe didn’t…

Sooo... DubRun 2k18. I've been on a few of these trips to Durban myself, probably half of them although remembering which years is a little bit of a mission. This will be the second time I've covered it for VAG Cafe though and it's an honour to do so because of a fact that many of you may not know - the founders of VAG Cafe were also among the first to introduce the DubRun back in 2007. Basically it started out as a trip to Durban with the Volkswagen...

VWCSA’s Run What You Brung with VAG Cafe at RedStar Raceway

This past weekend saw another event hosted by our favourite car club, the Volkswagen Club of SA. This time round the club heeded the calls, complaints, wants and needs of members and supporters. You see, after all the big and successful park off and show-style events hosted by the club, you will ALWAYS find complaints from various people who want to race, to go fast somewhere in a massive dick-swinging event to prove who has the fastest car. This is great, because the club is made up of many, many...

VAG Cafe rolled along for the VWCSA Midnight Run

When it came time to head out to the Midnight Run hosted by our good mates at the Volkswagen Club of South Africa, the weather was a little on the miff side with a healthy dose of rain and temperatures more reminiscent of a winter cold front. That's usually a bad thing, but in my experience it's pretty much fact that bad weather keep at least half of the possible attendees away, which means if the weather was great the chaos would have been on another level. With rain and...

CampFest X – VAG Cafe attends SA’s premier VW show

If you're a self-professed Volkswagen fan and you haven't heard of Vdub Camp Fest then you should up your game. In fact, if you are a VW nutter and you have heard of SA's largest gathering of all things VAG but haven't attended - it's time to move on. There's not really any excuse for not attending, especially with Camp Fest X being the tenth installment. Missing all ten events can only mean that you simply like the brand and you'll never get into a shouting match or a fist...

Dragwars 2k17 – VAG Cafe & Revo Technik invade!

This Dragwars event has been anticipated for some time now. there have been plenty online arguments about who rules the roost and the event would be the perfect place to test this out, not forgetting also the giving guys a chance to take up challenges that have popped up since the last event. This, and the fact that many events at Tarlton International Raceway have fallen away because of some politics we don't really care about, Dragwars promised to be quite the busy event. Then some people decided to host...

VWCSA’s Xmas in July – VAG Cafe stopped by.

The Volkswagen Club of South Africa's latest event was called Christmas in July and it promised to be an event of epic proportions. There was to be a Show & Shine, an install competition and of course, a dyno session. The event was partnered up with some well-known industry names like Delarey Racing Developments, Lindsay Saker Edenvale, Global Air Brakes, Speed & Sound Magazine, DJ Vin Deysel and the hosts, Oettinger SA. VAG Cafe too, because that's how we roll. The event was billed to kick off at 09:00 and...

VAG Cafe checked in at Jozi Kxlektive 6.0

It's actually mad how fast time flies, but this Jozi Kxlektive movement has been going for a year now, and this 6th one is the 1st to re-use a venue. It makes sense though as the Velmore Hotel is a rather picturesque spot. If you're a follower of the various local motoring pages you may have seen a few online arguments with regards to the JK events, but remaining as a sort of Switzerland means that VAG Cafe can attend and see some wicked rides. We're not sure if it's...

Germany vs. Japan – VAG Cafe took a look

There's a few big shows on the calendar that feature a strong contingent of VAG cars; VDub Camp Fest, BMW vs. VW and Germany vs. Japan by the O.Gs at Southside Crew. This weekend it was the turn of the latter, and the show was bigger and better than expected. I mean yeah, we knew there would be a good turnout, but even with some pretty nippy weather, the annual show produced the biggest turnout to date. Of course the Germany side includes plenty BMWs too, but the Volkswagens and...

VWCSA DubRun 2k17 – The Tape Up

It's hard to believe, but  this year's DubRun that's hosted by the Volkswagen Club of SA is the tenth incarnation of the event. Yeah, it's ten years strong, and is now one of the most anticipated events on the motoring calendar in SA at a club level. This is one for the true enthusiast, it's not like your normal Sunday breakfast run, this one requires planning, time off work and a fair bit of money. The guys who attend are the serious ones and most have all their ducks in...
