We attend the Volkswagen Dub Drive GCC 2017 in Dubai (video)
Volkswagen owners from across the region gathered at the Dubai Autodrome on the 21st April weekend at the largest ever exclusive event for the GCC. About 150 cars and 300 owners from Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Oman, Qatar, Kuwait, and the United Arab Emirates participated in the invitation-only Volkswagen ‘Dub Drive GCC 2017’ event to showcase their cars.
The first-of-its-kind gathering for Volkswagen in the region saw classic and modified Volkswagen models take part in a 150-car convoy around Dubai, before converging at the Dubai Autodrome for track laps and a gathering. Ahead of the gathering, many of the drivers from Bahrain, Oman and Saudi Arabia had actually driven here directly from their home countries to participate in the event. Organisers from the world’s biggest Volkswagen Clubs also attended the event, with the “intention of connecting fans worldwide.”
Our Arabic editor Tammam attended the event and also got to drive a VW Golf GTI Clubsport around the track, going up against the Saudi VW Club president and his tuned VW Scirocco. You can watch it on our YouTube channel.
