Kristof and the team behind Eurosunday are good friends of WCS, and we’ve always said that the Belgian one-dayer is one of our favourite shows on the calendar. If you ever get the opportunity to, make sure you go, the vibe is as close to perfect as you’ll find. The vast open area puts us in mind of that from the Race Wars event, in the first Fast & Furious. With currywürst aplenty and beer on tap, teamed with typically European techno music, when the sun’s beating down as it always seems to be, it’s easy to see why everyone loves it so much. Although this year, Europe’s nicest builds nestled down on the concrete to a cloudier morning than usual, turning into heavy rain during the afternoon. It still didn’t dampen the success of what is always a fantastic European adventure.
Lets take a look at some of the showstoppers this year; first up…
This stunning little Mk1, running some very special three piece smoothies, created by split rim aficionado Nico at, 2Polished.
The attendance from the plucky brits was as strong as ever. With Kristof consistently making the effort to get over to as many UK events as possible, its only fair we return the favour. Plus, who needs an excuse for a European weekend road trip?
This insane Trekker caused something of a stir throughout the weekend. Coined “The Shrekker” it’s certainly different. We’ve not managed to find detailed engine specs, but I think it’s safe to say it’s running big power.
The Porsches are always plentiful at Eurosunday. Kristof has two of his own, so naturally it’s becoming known Europe wide as something of an excuse for the owners of Stuttgart’s finest to wheel out their machinery. We didn’t hear anyone complaining…
Same story with the air-cooled stuff. It seems like every year, the standard of Type 1s and their numerous variants (there’s a pun in there somewhere) becomes higher and higher. Some of the machinery this year was breathtaking. With our editor owning both an exceptionally rare ’53 and ’62 Beetle, it’s something close to our hearts. It’s nice to see people respecting their elders.
Since Wörthersee, the new shape Passat R-Line has been firmly on our radar. We can’t get enough of the super aggressive look, and the shoulder line lends itself really well to the car being sat on the floor.
This gorgeous Mk2 Scirocco certainly caught our eye. The BBS E50s are reason enough to admire this car, but the better than factory paint and lack of air ride really called to our inner purist. Simple things.
The perfect Autobahn stormer; this W205 C63 AMG looked seriously menacing. We like this.
The variety of vehicles can only be described, as always, as eclectic. Eurosunday always throws up a few surprises for visitors, and we’ve never left disappointed or feeling like we haven’t had our moneys worth.
As mid afternoon rolled around, the heavens opened and the rain started falling, it was time to pack up the camping chairs and get ready for the trophies.
The show always works so well in the location its in, the team have got it just right. The WCS team have fond memories of Eurosunday and our Belgian friends who run the event. Until next year guys, take a break; you deserve it.
