GTI International 2016
The ADE Tuning gang will be heading down the road again this July to Shakespeare County Raceway to support some of our customers who will be either displaying their cars or taking them down the quarter mile strip.
GTI International provides full safety facilities of a true quarter-mile drag strip, with expert marshals and world-class timing equipment, and spectators can enjoy the view from the 3,000-seater grandstand.
The Sprint sees some of the fastest VW Group cars in the country including demo runs from the VWDRC with the fastest Sprint time ever at Inters clocking a 9.021-second ET at 148.78 mph in a turbocharged 20VT 4WD Scirocco. Can anyone top that this year?!
But it’s not just for top drag race cars; ANYONE CAN TAKE PART and a great many runs are recorded by cars in the other classes,ranging from modified motorsport cars to ordinary daily drivers, many of them enjoying their first foray onto a real sprint track. Just sign on, pay the modest fee, get your car scrutineered and join the queue in the assembly lane.
GTI International is now in its 29th year and growing every year. It’s a fabulous weekend show centred around the famous quarter-mile Sprint for everyone to have a go. There are concept cars, a massive Show ‘n’ Shine and Concours area with over 200 cars on display and plenty of trade stands and amusements including a new race simulator. With well over 40 clubs booked it’s a festival feeling with plenty of overnight camping and on site fixed facilities. There is food, a great band, DJ and bar area to entertain everyone in the evening plus some fun on the Friday Pre-Event night courtesy of Comrades of VAG.
And if that wasn’t enough we will hopefully be taking part in the display for the 40th anniversary of the birth of the iconic Golf GTI.
