Hail the Lake!
This year’s tuning bash at Lake Wörth once again pulled out all the stops. Golf monster-hps and a small-scale powerhouse made heads turn. The so-called “Gummiplatz” and the Dotz booth, as usual, were the ultimate hotspots at the GTI convention in Reifnitz.
Roughly 150,000 fans of the Wolfsburg car factory flocked to the south of Carinthia to celebrate the creation of the VW Golf, as has been the tradition for 36 years now. It goes without saying that the VW Golf was the headliner at the Dotz booth in Reifnitz: a Golf VII Clubsport on Dotz SP5 dark 8.5x20. With coilovers by Gepfeffert and SRS Tec wings, the Wolfsburger pulls off 265 hps, with overboost briefly even revving up to 290 hps.
The weather was perfect, the fans moved through the festival grounds in crowds – and towards the Dotz booth.
There, our Dotz Girl Maria was busy handing out autographs ...
...and in the breaks the hips moved to the Dotz Jukebox rhythms.
The Dotz booth caught in a quiet moment in all its glory. Looks like a South Seas holiday.
And once again the Golf VII GTI, this time from the other side where we fitted the Dotz Revvo.
An institution on events like these: Peter Riedel. The air brusher drove his Passat to Lake Wörth on Dotz Revvo dark…
...to give proof of his bodypainting skills, as always at the Dotz booth. Afterwards, the models cooled off from the hot action.
Dotz cooperation partner Foliatec also presented its products in Reifnitz, attached to this film-sprayed Golf VI on Dotz Shift.
Apart from the manufacturers the self-built and modified custom bodies from the VW family give off a few highlights at the GTI convention. As every year, there were also classic Bullis in the DIY camping equipment among them…
...a Beetle with a rocket-style tailpipe and...
...a classic, perfectly groomed Audi Coupé.
A visitor from Italy provided a glimmer of American gigantomania with his Toyota mounted with 32-inch rims.
Even the smallest members of the Wolfsburg family were allowed to take part in the GTI convention. We will keep you posted on that.
We have a winner: the winner of the Audi Q2 challenge. The K-Custom tuned Ingolstadt car convinces with R8 parts, carbon lamination on the C-pillar and headlights painted black from inside.
Less tuning, more off-road was the concept for this Q2 which boasted Dotz Dakar.
This time, VW brought together all brands on one booth. Visitors got to see the Rallyecross Polo RX with 600 hps steered by rallye legend Petter Solberg.
There was a lot of commotion at the event’s name givers booth where everyone celebrated the...
...Up GTI. 115 hps drive the pipsqueak to 100 km/h in just 8.8 seconds, with the final speed reaching (electronically limited) 197 km/h.
The Golf GTI TCR was impressive, too. The Volkswagen Motorsport fireball sucks 243 kW from a 2-l turbo engine with fuel direct injection.
Audi drove a TT e-tron to Reifnitz.
Apart from the latest design ideas there is always room for tradition, embodied, for example, by 40-year-old Beetles or...
...the Golf from the very first production series.
At the GTI convention there is room for tuning as much as...
...fun at the well-tried “Gummiplatz”.
Precious pieces are easy to spot in Reifnitz: a Golf II G60 Rallye.
In addition to the booth, Dotz was present in various rim versions: this Golf features a Mugello Dark...
...a TÜV Skoda came on Dotz Shift pinstripe red and...
...a Seat Leon Cupra on Dotz Revvo dark.
Once more, the 36th edition of the GTI convention left nothing to be desired.
The date for the 37th convention is already fixed: it will take place between 9th and 13th of May 2018.
