Le Bug Show Spa Belgium 2005
This is the furthest Veedubbing have travelled in our dubs, but a very entertaining weekend was had by all. We didn't have the best start to the trip it has to be said. It took a lot longer to get to Dover than anticipated, which meant we couldn't get in a campsite or hotel at 2am in the morning. So we cut our losses and slept in the bugs and buses on Dover seafront. We were all on the ferry at 12.30 the next day.
Once we were off the ferry the race was on, we had to get to Camp De Rouge near Spa before dark, we failed!. It's no joke putting up a 8 man tent in the dark we can tell you. Friday morning and we were up early, not as early as the SSVC though, cheers guys a wake up call was just what we needed at 6.30am! ;-P. We hit the Spa campsite about 10am, we can only compare it to Glastonbury for vw's, it was massive. We spent Friday night with some crazy French people having an illegal rave, and watching the nutters cane it up and down the road, pretending they had hydraulics.
The highlight of the weekend had to be driving on the race track, the Terry Grant Stunt Show and drag racing. The journey back was not quite so smooth, unfortunately the yellow bay window hit a massive pot hole 10 miles outside of Spa which practically took the wheel off. We wont mention how unhelpful the RAC was in taking two days to get the van home!!.
We were heading towards Dunkirk when we spotted and hotel and thought we would treat ourselves to a good nights sleep and freshen up before boarding the ferry home on Monday. We were woken by the French Police to find that every car in the car park had been broken into other than our dubs. We couldn't believe our luck. The police did tell us that they had made a note of the writing on our back windows, as they thought the message "mum's gone to Iceland I'm off to Spa" and "je mapl petite Joe" and "yourmumsyourdad", were trade marks left by the gang of thieves!.
Quotes from the veedubbing Spa trips
"yep much oddness all over the place, hooch
powered frog machine that played lowrider over and over all weekend
hoping and kangeroing all around the site with helmets on ?? it's wrong
and mentally disturbing because you thinking what the f*** then by the
second day you are cheering them and getting mullered with some German
playing techno from their bus !!!
"yes it was a mad one to say the least, had a great time though, hated every bit of the driving over there quite surprised my car didn't take a nose dive either, but I think the show made up for it,
But it was a cool show"
