Steve from Steves vw shop is on his way to get him a 10 second run with his atmospheric engine, last weekend he passed 8 runs with a 11.1 result ... quite consistent ! This weekend larger slicks, a wheelie bar and some tweeking on the clutch can get him his non turbo 10 second pass ! Keep the fingers crossed for Steve !

Another edition has gone by, we'd like to thank everybody involved with our event, everybody who helped us out organising, and of course everybody being there, and coming over to check out the cars and atmosfere at the event ... it is you taht made the show !

Now let's get prepared for the 10th edition.

it seems so long ago. i still can see myself arriving on place in Bitburg 10 years ago ... i must have been 27 years young then :-). I still had a 2007cc engine in my beetle, that ran a 14.53 in santapod, but i never reached 14.53 in Bitburg. Today i am running an ultra low compression engine with 8.5CR and manage to run a 15.017 run, that is my Personal Best on Bitburg !
