My 2015 highlights

Funilly, almost all my highlights of 2015 are connected to the "Le Bug Show" in Spa in August this year. Besides the perfect weather and the adventure to get there (with Ralf's car on a trailer for the last ~40 km) - This recovery was the first -too good to be true- scene of this weekend:

(note this perfect blue sky!)

So we fixed this (for the 2nd time this year a repair job on the road - the other one on the way to Hannover was also something to be mentioned) , participated in the unbelievable parade,

met so many friends , found out that these Belgians even bring along their own mini"frituur":

and on Saturday  evening we visited the Type 3 meeting - and I (actually my car) got the Type 3 Award presented!
Later this night we fixed yet another Type 3 which fuel pump gave up, which was also a great example of the international camaradery of us -slightly crazy- aircooled VW enthusiasts - Awesome!

During Sunday we drove a few times around the race track:
... had another perfect day and a flawless journey home again later on Sunday afternoon.

I can't wait for the weekend of August 5th-7th 2016 for the next "Le Bug Show" in Spa, Belgium! 

Another highlight was the 6 page feature of my car in the October 2015 issue of Ultra VW, a special thanks to Dokke for the great pictures and Paul Knight for a damn good article!

 Even the shooting on a hot July day was great fun:

Oh - and not forgetting to mention a nice BBQ with great friends in late August! (You know who you are!)

Finally, the purchase of my first Porsche is something I want to add here - I know, it is not a real Porsche, but I like anyways!

So, thank you to all my friends involved in this hobby for having a great time whenever we meet and see you all in 2016!


  1. Ich glaube, dass ich 2016 wieder eine Runde drehen werde ...
    Bin gespannt was dann passieren wird?
    Wird bestimmt nicht langweilig...

    Kommst Du mit?

    Gruß Ralli

  2. Mehr geht nicht, in Sachen TL .. Eine Hammer Saison ...
    Es steht nach noch ein fetter Motor plus Schräglenkerachse bereit ...
    Da geht doch noch was?

    ich freue mich auf 2016 !!!

  3. Die nächste Runde auf diesem Track wird auf jeden Fall schneller als dieses Jahr :-)
    Die Vorbereitungen für die "Operation Fastback" laufen schon...
