    Thanks for putting them up Judy. I love the brown 61 Beetle - very nice!

    I've said to my kids that I'll buy them all a Beetle as their first car (originally was going to be Kombis but they'll be too many $ by the time they drive, and they can't fit as many people into a Beetle as they can a Kombi), but will now have to make sure they never see these pictures or go to Warwick themselves, otherwise God knows what they'll get up to!! I can see the skid marks already..... :D

    Nice pics Judy - good to see you again albeit briefly! I was too busy trying to either sort out my starter motor problems, or tune my borrowed carbs that I didn't have too much time to talk to anywhere near the number of people I had hoped!

    It was a great weekend - heaps of fun!

    Like everyone who made the most of every minute of the weekend, I am totally exhausted. With less than two weeks to the deadline for issue#16 of VWMA, I did fall asleep at the computer yesterday.

    At trophy presentation, Chris Loy, president of the Warwick Dragclub hinted at a conversation he and I had on Saturday night about future Warwicks, and the effort that goes into organising the event. I probably don't need to state the obvious, but the ask is huge.

    However, it would seem I have little choice in the matter about future events. VW Warwick, like the magazine, now has its own momentum, driven by the enthusiasm and energy of the OZ VW scene. Racers and spectators alike want more action events such as these, and it all adds to the excitement of owning and driving Volkswagens.

    I'm happy to say after the record field this year and the fantastic support from sponsors, especially VGA, that VW Warwick on the October long weekend is now a permanent calendar event. I've already had enquiries this week about 2008, and been told of at least six more cars to be definitely on the staging lanes next year.

    Some one also asked how do you make it better? You don't - the racing makes it a success, and with a few improvements to exisiting facilities and some of the off track functions, the fun element will only increase.

    My only suggestion to competitors? Start work on your cars this year - I already have!

    We had an absolute ball watching the drags and hope to make it again next year. Deb's brother is right into VDubs aswell but tends towards beetles. He is planning to enter the racing next year which will be a real hoot. Anyway I have taken a few photos myself.

    It's a toss up between the drags and Old Bar next year. If they split the weekends that would be good. Then we would go to both.
