European Road Trip - UK to Polo Treffen Holland

13 Apr 2015

Posted by mark_crox in Front Page News
Well we departed later that I thought we would. Mainly due to me being totally unprepared and not packing anything the night before. This did mean that we missed rush our traffic heading south.

The downside to the last start was that we didn't get to our hotel in Folkstone till after midnight which meant our 7:20am crossing hurt!

Still half asleep we headed on into mainland Europe where we did managed to get a bit distracted and stopped off in Bruges for a bit of this..

Sam had most of the beer and I had most of the cheese finished off with some ice cream! :)

We continued on and I was glad that the European roads where so easy to drive as I was starting to get a bit weary

We finally made it to our camp site and where greeted with a some Polo friends so I'm pretty sure it was the right place!

We got our stuff sorted and pretty much crashed out for the rest of the evening!

Next morning we woke to a cool yet bright and sunny morning and we got Huyi packed up and headed out to the show site

It was only a 10min drive but it was a lovely route taking in many small villages and a tunnel or two which always put a smile on my face

Entering the show hall I was just amazed with the number of Polo's under one roof. We parked up and started exploring

The show was really good and if you are into your early Polo's I would definitely recommend you make the trip over. Next year they are planning to make it a weekend event! We headed out mid afternoon to our next port of call Bielefeld, Germany and then on to Wolfsburg and the VW factory and museums.

Club Polo 2015 Track Day at Blyton Park - 25th July

Club Polo 2015 Track Day at Blyton Park

95a9a819-4330-4d0e-b61f-86dc4d8e7d2b.jpg
 

 
Some of you have been to Blyton before but if you haven't Blyton is a great circuit for all driver abilities with a mix of fast straights and corner sections as well as tight and technical chicanes. The most reassuring benefit for new trackday drivers is that if things do go wrong is that there is plenty of run off space along side the tarmac circuit. It's a circuit that really suits small cars like the Polo.

Also 'My car's not quick enough' is not an excuse for not joining in. Last time I did it in a 55bhp Mk2 and its soooo much fun, perhaps more so than when I was running my 16v. Also whilst it would be nice that everyone brings a polo its open to all car makes!
 
This again will be run by our friends at Mazda on Track so you can rest assured that everything will be conducted in a safe but fun environment.
