Rennwagen member Paul Dipple's Party Bus... featured!

Great to see Paul's Bus in the latest Ultra VW mag, it really is one of the coolest early bay's around. This 1970 deluxe kombi retains its full microbus interior, with Z brackets fitted to allow it to be used as a camper, and is powered by the 1776cc motor built by Paul Knight for his old white Fastback Type 3 - its not quite a Rennwagen machine (yet???) but gives Paul somewhere to warm to hunker down while he's hatching plans for the quickest street driven Notch in the UK.... hitting the streets in 2012.

It also gives the rest of the Rennwagens somewhere to party in the pits!!!!

Nice work Paul.

California Look Drag Day 2012, March 31st - April 1st, Santa Pod Raceway

The California Look Drag Day.... a little slice of So-Cal brought to the Drag Strips of the UK.

Racing is open to flat four VW Engined vehicles that are capable of completing a 1/4 mile in under 15.99 seconds, and spectators welcome along. There will be a show and shine on the Saturday and some of the quickest flat fours in Europe out on the strip on Sunday.

This event is ALL ABOUT THE RACING, aimed at the true petrol heads of the VW Scene. The camaraderie of fellow racers and the roar of the flat four is the entertainment, dressing up is strictly limited to race suits and helmets. Any dancing which takes place, is from inside the vehicle and involves a steering wheel and an attempt to launch in a straight line.

The RENNWAGENS will be there.... will you?
