VAGKRAFT 2016 Postponed…
It is with heavy hearts that we regret to announce that this year’s VAGKRAFT Show has been cancelled, with plans to resume in 2017 on a date that is to be determined. It is a decision that was not made lightly, one that came as a result of many personal and professional factors affecting us, the organizers of the show.
As you may know, VAGKRAFT was born when four enthusiasts got together to put on an event that showcased all of the great things that VW, Audi, and related brands had to offer. It was organized and executed all in our free time, with the support of friends and family outside of our professional and personal lives and it’s how we’ve been doing it ever since. A show created “for the people by the people” and run purely out of the love for the culture and community. This philosophy and attitude is what has driven us over the last decade and one that will continue to push us forward in the future.
2016 would have marked our tenth year, and being a milestone year we were planning on something very special. But this year has been exceptionally demanding on us. Ten years ago we were single and carefree individuals with very flexible lives. Today we are husbands, fathers, and professionals in our respective trades, with the commitments and responsibilities and that come along with them. Unfortunately, circumstances beyond our control have put a lot of stress on our lives and we reached a point where we realized we couldn’t accomplish the goal that we had set for this year’s event. We pride ourselves on the fact that for almost a decade, we’ve been putting on an event like no other, one that marks a high point in the season, earning the respect and enthusiasm of the community. This year was special, and not being able to stage an event to the standard that we have built was unacceptable, and not fair to the Sponsors and enthusiasts who have supported us over the years. We will return in 2017 with an event to properly celebrate 10 years of VAGKRAFT.
Outside of the main event that has been postponed to next year, VAGKRAFT still plans on being visible and active in the community throughout the 2016 season, by offering small group events such as our annual Paintless Dent Removal day and AWD DYNO day, and showing up to and supporting other shows and events throughout the season. We will also continue activity on our social media outlets and cooperation with enthusiast online forums.
Some of you may not be aware, but Davide, one of the founding members of VAGKRAFT has departed from the show. It was a decision he made reluctantly at the end of last season, but a necessary one in order to pursue and focus on other interests and personal goals in his life. We wish him well and part as good friends.
VAGKRAFT WILL CONTINUE IN 2017 – HAVE YOUR SAY!
