If you are looking for some light at the end of the cold rainy tunnel known as April, look no further than Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park for the New England Dustoff. This annual event is geared towards the VW/Audi community with show classes for each generation. However, all makes and models are welcome in the exhibition and spectator parking lot. It is a family-friendly event, and the organizers work hard to retain a low key, enjoyable day for car enthusiasts of all ages. Kids 12 and under are even given free admission. If you are looking to check out some of the top names in the industry, make sure to stop by the Paddock area where are all the vendors will be set up. As an Executive Sponsor for the event, eEuroparts will be back to meet and greet everyone, and hand out credits to our website. If you are
As the leaves turn and fall, a lot of us are probably sitting here thinking about how fast this summer went by. Longer nights and colder days mean show season is coming to a close, but not before one last one that we couldn’t miss. If we kicked it after Staggered, it would have been a worthy ending, but incomplete. At the beginning of the year, we attended one of our first tuner shows ever, Dubs on Defrost (not counting the SAAB Owners Convention or Carlisle). Put on by the same organizers as Dubs On The Track 3, it only seemed fitting to end 2015 the way we started, on the edge of a race track surrounded in tuned Euros. The plans, however, changed mid-summer, forcing a change of venue. Due to problems at Lime Rock Park, the popular mainstay of automotive culture was forced to cancel all Sunday events
A little while ago in April, we went to a show called ‘Dubs on Defrost‘, which was a massive enthusiast car show at Lime Rock Park in rural, CT. We were amazed at the turnout, the entire racetrack was stacked with customized Volkswagens showing off how low they could go. The weather was perfect, and we gave away a bunch of $15 account credits. It was a blast, so we are supremely excited to be doing it again. Luckily, we will still be at a race track (of course where we feel most comfortable), but this one will be on the other side of the state, in Thompson CT. eEuroparts.com is the Executive Sponsor of New England Dustoff! This is going to be the next in a series of diehard car culture shows that we will be going to, this one featuring mostly VW’s and Audi’s. The show has
Last year around this time, a few of the eEuroparts.com cataloging team headed out to Bristol, CT to see a car show. The show was called Dubs on Defrost, and was the first major gathering of VW gearheards for 2014. This year, slammed VDubs, Audis, and Bimmers dragged their bellies to Lime Rock Park in the beautiful rolling mountains of western Connecticut. The organizers had them flow out onto the racetrack for a show reminiscent of the Lime Rock Historics layout. eEuroparts was right there on the front straight, setting up our tent next to start/finish. It was an amazing view, especially as the line to get into the show formed right in front of us. As I attempted to picture the near fifty years of amazing racing flying past the spot I was standing, I had to take a step back. Not because suddenly my imagination teleported a Porsche
Every year for the last 9 years, Ocean State Dubs put’s on New England’s Largest VW/Audi show, and new for 2015 will be eEuroparts.com as executive sponsor! We’re exited to roll out and set up at Thompson Motor Speedway on May 31, 2015 to enjoy an entire facility full of amazing customs, limited production rarities (expect to see at least one harlequin MKIII to show up), and even a few exotics. We will have Baker’s Dozen Racing with us at our booth to show off a legit VDub rally car, very cool. The show will include judged events and prizes so if you have a show car that fits the bill, we’ll see you there! Come out on May 31st of this year to Thompson Motor Speedway to get the show season started with New England Dustoff 2015!
