Once you go to VW Days, you can’t help but go back every year for the foreseeable future. Last weekend was our third year at France’s premium modified car show, and, although it is a Volkswagen show, it’s started to attract fans of other marques. Why? It’s simple really, VW Days is one of the best weekend’s a car enthusiast can experience. Once you’ve crossed over from the UK into Calais, it’s just a quick drive (under two hours) down one toll road, into Saint-Quentin. You can choose to either camp onsite at the show, or stay in the nearby hotels in the heart of the town. We recommend taking a few friends and turning it into a long weekend / mini break. Every year we are blown away by the quality of cars on display and the chilled atmosphere. Held over two days, there’s plenty of time to see everything. So, here are our highlights from the weekend…

I know what you’re thinking… Yes, the quality of cars was indeed incredible, so you know you need to get it in your diary for next year – trust us, you won’t be disappointed! Furthermore, if you’re a fan of nightlife, then the onsite festivities are highly recommended by many, equally, if you decide to stay in a hotel, there’s plenty going on for the three nights surrounding the show. Regrettably, some Brits went a bit too far this year… let’s calm it down guys, we don’t want this show disappearing due to the stupidity of a select few. Again, thanks to Ilce and the organisers at VW Days for being so welcoming, see you next year!
