After weeks of waiting the VW Freedriving Tour day came around. I felt like a teenage boy who finally got his full drivers permit and was getting schooled on the art of driving from one of the Top Gear guys. Yes, I’m a girl who loves cars and follows Top Gear, so what? ;)
After signing in and getting my track pass all setup, I took a little time to just watch other people go through their tests first, so I can figure out the course. I wanted to make sure I wouldn’t be able to read one particular sign…
Here is a video of what I was watching, I’m not the best videographer, sorry!
After watching other people have all the fun, it was my turn. check out how I did in the Tiguan, love the noise it makes when I’m flat on the floor…
After a few runs and testing out all the different cars, I went back and tested the Jetta Diesel, it’s a pretty smooth car. Watch the video, the instructor tells me I’m doing a “nice job”, it’s ON TAPE!! He totally made my day for saying that, so thank you! :)
Even though I enjoyed driving all the cars, I was SUPER surprised to realize that I actually enjoyed the Golf Wagon the most. Who would’ve thunked it!
After I had my fun with the cars on the track, I went to checkout the newly launched 2012 Beetle inside the tents. That car is a beauty, can’t wait to test it out on the road.
All in all, I had an amazing day, filled with excitement and new experiences. To make it all even better I received an awesome goodie bag filled with VW goodies. Love the parking sign, I’m going to take it to work and put it on my parking spot!
