Revo headline sponsor for 25th Anniversary GTI International 2012
ECU artisan Revo has announced its continued support of the UK’s premier VW event; GTI International. The 2012, 25th Anniversary show looks set to offer more than ever before, with a packed itinerary of the UK’s finest show cars, the fastest race machinery, premier extreme attractions and of course, the superbly attended trader’s village.
Staying true to its roots, ‘Inters’, as it’s affectionately known, will once again be held at the extensive site of Bruntingthorpe Proving Grounds in Leicestershire. Organisers AutoMetrix Publications and the Team of Show Sponsors are pulling out every stop to make this years’ event that bit extra special. Supported by the Revo Dealer network, expect to see some of Europe’s finest and fastest ‘dubs battling it out head to head over the quarter mile sprint. Can anyone beat the 10.484 second run of Paul Jordan’s Scirocco from last year? You’ll need to be there on the 23rd and 24th of June to find out!
Over the coming months keep a close look out for Revo Competition features in both VW Driver and Audi Driver magazines, exclusively aimed at those Inters fans whom purchase early tickets, a monthly draw will take place for free Software installs culminating with a major giveaway of the new Revo 2.0TFSI K04 turbo kit conversion.
It’s not all about straight line speed however. Revo’s technical partners Eibach and Bilstein will also be very much in evidence, sponsoring the legendary handling area. The stakes have been raised for 2012, with a full chassis makeover from the two German brands on offer to the plucky driver posting the best time of the day, and demo rides throughout the weekend to show exactly what their products can do to transform the demeanour of even the humblest of hot hatches.
Another VAG scene stalwart will also be joining the impressive line-up. Milltek will be sponsoring the grandstand as well as showcasing their latest wares for Volkswagen Group cars alongside Revo.
Other favourites will be the show and shine, sponsored by Meguiar’s- with great prizes on offer for the finest cars, a mobile dyno, club displays, autojumble and plenty for the whole clan to do, over what promises to be a fantastic family weekend.
Mixing it up a little, Revo will also be laying on a return of the BMX Tricks alongside a series of death-defying Freestyle Motocross displays, courtesy of UKFMX – and even a full, festival spec, computer-controlled firework display for the Saturday evening.
‘We’re turning everything up to ‘Stage 12+’ for this year’s event,’ commented Revo chairman, James Leng. ‘We want to keep the core attractions and laid-back vibe that entice the real VAG enthusiasts to attend Inters, but, alongside the organisers, we are working together with our select technical partners at Milltek, Eibach and Bilstein, to coordinate our sponsorship support. We reckon the mix will generate the best itinerary yet – including a little bit of extra fun around the edges to make it even easier to bring the family along. It’s going to be an amazing line-up – and we hope to see all of you there.’
With the Fireworks Spectacular to celebrate 25 years of the show, the pitches for camping are likely to be even more popular, whilst costs are included in the weekend ticket price, along with full shower and toilet facilities. So, load up your Dub with barbie and beers, saddle up your mates, your family and your tent and head to Bruntingthorpe for the 23rd of June. It’s going to be the best Inters yet!
