Volkswagen Group South Africa, the country’s leading passenger car manufacturer, will be at the South African Motoring Experience (SAMEx) from 1 – 3 September at the Kyalami Race Track.
The Volkswagen experience will be much more than just about cars and will offer a host of experiential experiences aimed at the whole family.
Adventure awaits at the Volkswagen Pit Lane with either self or professional drives in the New Golf range (Golf R, Golf GTI and Golf GTD) as well the Volkswagen Passat.
Volkswagen will also be giving members of the public an opportunity to feature on the third season of Speed Stars which will be broadcast on DSTV’s Ignition TV. At the Volkswagen Skid Pan area at the Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit on 2 and 3 September, contestants will be given three attempts at driving a Volkswagen up! through a technical slalom course, with only two of the fastest times per day going through to the next round.
There will also be a Tiguan ‘Boot Packing’ competition, a ‘Car Pool Karaoke’ competition as well as a dance class with a robot choreographer.
Visitors can share their Volkswagen moments with their friends on social media by uploading photos and videos in the GIF Booth and Instagram Photo Session using the hashtag #VWLive.
“Because Volkswagen is more than just a car company and we want to show our human side, we will have a Blue Bike Cycling station, where we invite visitors to cycle as fast and far as they can on our Blue Bike. Every 200 kilometres cycled will result in Volkswagen donating a bicycle to disadvantaged rural children through the Volkswagen for Good initiative,” says Matt Gennrich, General Manager: Group Communications at Volkswagen Group South Africa.
