      The event is intended to support the VW brand as they are the title sponsor along with APR. That said, there will be a handful of non-VWs on the track... including those helping with track instruction, some sponsor cars and a few special invitees.

      The VW only is for those registering for the track event. I hope you can make the event. Can you bring your GTI? Hit me up on PM if needed.

      porsche is now fully owned by vw. as of i believe 2 weeks ago, vw bought the 46% or 48% or whatever of porsche that they did not own, hence porsche's are one of us now.

      my 0.02

      i understand why its "vw only"

      I saw the registration list for the track day and there are two Audis. Plus APR provides products for Porsche so I would still be supporting one of your sponsors. Id like to bring an '06 Turbo X50 as well as my GTI.

      Fastivus 2012's World Famous Raffle... amazing love and support from our sponsors!!!

      Reminder how it works... each attendee will get one raffle ticket. Each prize will have it's own
      raffle box. You must place your one ticket in one of the many boxes... by doing this, you have
      a great chance of winning the one prize you want, but effectively remove yourself from having
      a chance at any of the other raffle prizes.

      This has been our format for years, since 2005 and has worked wonderfully for us... it ensures
      that you get want what you win and highly discourages reselling or trading of prizes after the
      event.

      So make sure you arrive early to get your raffle ticket, we stop handing them out at 1PM and
      the raffle is at ~2PM. Must be present to win!

      Not all of them.

      APR tune is for many other VWs
      HPA DSG tune and Big Brake kit is not just R
      United Motorsport Flash is not limited to the R
      Rotiform Wheels
      VMR wheels
      BFG Tires
      HPA Short Shifter
      HPA Motor Mounts
      VF Engineering Mounts

      Looks like more raffles than not are for general VWs

      The entire weekend is open to all VWs.

      All the prizes? Nah, some yes but not all. Wheels fit any car, as do tires. Bike rack fits any MKIV, MKV or MKVI. APR and UM tunes can be used on any VW. The Unibrace fits many different cars.

      Would love to have you join us!

      Does this mean that Rotiform will actually have wheels in stock?

      WOW, thanks everyone for turning out today... the number of people blew my expectations out of the water!

      FAVOR... I will post up an official THANK YOU thread on Monday after the track day tomorrow... please refrain from posting pics and commentary up in this thread as I'd like to properly thank all of our sponsors properly in a post... and consolidate all our pics and feedback on the event in one thread.

      So till then... if you have pics, clean them up in Photoshop and get 'em ready... thanks again for a great GTG today. Now off to the Sunday Track Day!

      East Coast did have a VW sponsored track day last month... and you may get your wish. VWoA was inquiring about "Fastivus: East Coast Edition"
