Preview European Bug-In in Chimay

June 20, 2017

We’re only a few days away from the 7th European BUG-IN in Chimay. Mark 30/06 and 01 and 02/07 2017 in your agenda. Here is a preview about what you can expect from this edition.

The European BUG-in concept

The Original Bug-In story started way back in 1968 on the American West Coast and it quickly grew into THE major VW event that lasted for just 15 years… Today the Bug-In name has a legendary status. And now, for the 7th time, this show concept lands on Belgian soil under the EUROPEAN BUG-IN flag! This event was conceived with the approval and support of Richard Kimball, one of the original Californian Bug-In Promotors.

How to get there?

The 7th European BUG-IN will be held at CHIMAY in Belgium, at just a few kilometers from the French border. Chimay is a well know little town famous for its Monk Beer brewery and the legendary almost 90 year old Racetrack. This spot will allow all european passionate Volkswagen enthousiasts to relive the original Bug-In vibe but this time closer to home in its European version.

Some of the main events during the BUG-IN

1/4 mile DRAGSTRIP ACTION: Just like back then the Quartermile Drag racing is the major activity during the whole weekend. The CIR track will be open from Friday to give Dragracers some set-up time and get their machines ready for the real racing over the weekend!

SLALOM : This part of the show will allow Slalom Lovers to exercise their bugs on a typical slalom track showing off the ability of the volkswagens to go around corners too, bring out your fat 14″ wheels and go for a spin!

SHOW & SHINE : the show and shine corner will alow you to show off your pride and joy in a nice setting (a well organised, categorised field). There will be a Nostalgia area managed by Eldub himself where all periode lookers will be lined up! and the Gasserparking… well a total blast from the past!
