Many people arrived to spend the whole day with the club and to have the power of their car tested on the rolling road dyno, TDIfurby’s car was the most powerful diesel of the day but the big winner was the Prostate Cancer UK charity. With help from our members, visitors and the companies who kindly donated raffle prizes we raised over £400 on the day.
Pictures and details of the rolling road runs will soon follow.


Racing themed casino games

When the action on the track gets a little monotonous (as it has on more than one occasion this season) one way to while away the time until the next pit stop is to play some motorsport themed online slot games; here are two which are likely to keep you entertained.
Good to Go is one of the top motorsport online slots games and one in which you determine haw had you press the throttle. The minimum bet is just £0.09p and definitely for the rookies amongst you, while the maximum bet is £90, a bet worthy of champions. For anyone in a mid-grid position you can bet anything in between as long as you restrict it to 10 coins. This is definitely a slot for the thrill seeker, and the game symbols include a number of icons from the sport. The wild symbols are the pit babes and by substituting for any other symbol they are your route to untold riches. Spin three rev counters and you get bonus free spins plus a multiplier to further increase your winnings. So fasten your seatbelt and hit the track.
If you are a Nascar fan then you will really enjoy Fast Lane. This is a three car race with loads of thrills and spills and some really excellent graphics and sound effects. It is a five reel slot with fifty pay lines with a maximum bet of £125 per spin, though you can bet as little as 50p. Hit spin and the engines roar as the pistons pound. The scatter symbol is the chequered flag, and if you spin three of them you gain a pit pass to the pit stop bonus feature. Just as the pit crew need to be fast, so do you in this bonus feature. When the chief yells out an order, you need to respond by clicking on the correct item. The faster and more accurate your performance, the more you win.



VW Showroom

Volkswagen is in the process of updating its showrooms across the UK, ensuring they offer customers and staff up-to-date, modern and useable space.  Included within these projects are a number of relocations to new, purpose-built sites which will greatly enhance customer experience.

Volkswagen currently has a network of 210 Retailers nationwide.  Forty-nine of these have already completed their revisions and a further 70 are scheduled to be completed by the end of 2013.

Business has carried on ‘as usual’ throughout the work at all sites.  Feedback received to date from customers and staff suggests that any temporary disruption was well worthwhile.  All new showrooms have space for at least 10 new Volkswagen cars, comfortable waiting and refreshment areas, merchandise and accessories plus WiFi.  There are also ample parking spaces and modern state-of-the-art workshops to provide the best possible aftersales back-up for all Volkswagen cars.

Some Retailers will showcase initiatives such as cafés, children’s play areas, dedicated vehicle hand-over areas and consultation bays, all of which are designed to enhance the experience for customers when purchasing or maintaining their vehicle.

All Retailers are also part of Volkswagen’s ‘Digital Showroom’ revolution.  This development, which went live at all Retailers in summer 2012 equipped showrooms and staff with iPads and a range of advanced web tools with the aim of closing the gap between the on- and off-line worlds.  As well as making the assimilation of information easier for the customer it also enables him or her to view virtual examples of products and specifications that may not otherwise be available for immediate viewing in the showroom.

Spencer Clayton-Jones, Volkswagen’s Head of Customer Quality and Network Development, commented: ‘We’re making fantastic progress on the project.  Where the changes are complete we’ve noticed a large uplift in customer visits, purchases and staff morale.  Customers are clearly enthusiastic about coming to the new showrooms and this suggests when they do they’re happy, engaged and serious about buying a car.  If they like the environment it follows they’ll want to come back for regular maintenance, which has definite benefits for them, and of course, for our Retailers.’

He added: ‘We’re looking forward to 2015 when all of our showrooms will have undergone the changes and we can guarantee all our customers across the UK the consistency and high quality environment they would expect from Volkswagen.’
