Unsponsored Content: Volkswagen's Track Day For Everyone (Kind Of)

unsponsored content volkswagens track day for everyone kind of

Owning a Volkswagen occasionally requires a Vanagon’s worth of patience, but there are compensations. The newest one: a high-speed trackday at one of the country’s more interesting racetracks, complete with instruction, for fifty bucks.

Once again, VW has teamed up with TrackDAZE for a VW-centric trackday. There’s only one catch: you have to bring your Volkswagen. Having been lucky enough to unload every Volkswagen I’ve ever owned on some hapless sucker, I won’t be attending this one, but East Coasters who haven’t given up the faith yet should give it a shot.

    Let's see, 100 VWs means at least 50 tow trucks....

    This is not about VW in particular, but automakers must offer cars in more colors. (Shades of grey - black, silver, white, etc. are not colors....)

      @th009 To be fair the color selection isn't really extensive for other VW either. The same goes for audi or any other European manufacturer. My - semi-conspiracy - theory is that it's an attempt to drive discerning customers towards the profit margin heaven of M/Designo/Exclusive colors. 3 grand or more for a factory paint job seems like a nice addition to the bottom line, the same goes for interior color and color combinations, in the European market you used to be able to chose quite freely, now it's approaching US suv territory with it's severely limited options.

    Best $50 one could possibly spend IMHO. If they get anywhere near central Florida count me in!
