- Race or competition
Volkswagen Beetle lovers can finally meet to share their common passion for this amazing car: on the Chimay racetracks in June.
The program will be similar to the original Bugins tradition, created in 1968 on the West Coast of the US. A full range of activities await both participants and spectators, such as a 400 m dragstrip action and a slalom challenge.
If you feel like a spare part or you’re born to be wild, then this is the event for you. 450 race drivers and 500 exceptional motorbikes (from the ‘pre-war’ period to 1982.) routinely put on quite a show during this iconic event as they are joined by bikers, pilots and bystanders in a big parade following the former route of the tracks. What a great way to bring this circuit back to life! Don't miss the traditional concert on the Saturday evening to prolong the festivities and a new event involving a spare part market involving the buying and selling of spare parts! It’s a boot sale for bits!
This much-anticipated week-end will be full of surprises for the visitors.
The full programme is available on the official website.
