Oklahoma Willy powers into VolksWorld at Sandown Park


Sandown Park Racecourse, will play host to Europe’s largest classic Volkswagen show, VolksWorld, on the 24th and 25th March 2018.

The star of this year’s show will be a jet powered campervan named ‘Oklahoma Willy’, which can reach speeds of more than 140mph. Visitors will also get the chance to see a collection of rare and iconic VW Hebmüllers, which were last produced in 1953.

Over the duration of the weekend, VolksWorld typically attracts thousands of people from all over the UK and overseas, many of whom will use their campervans and tents to camp on the site overnight.

Utilising more than 80% of the Sandown Park site, VolksWorld takes on a festival feel with more than 100 sale stands, clubs, refreshment stalls, music, entertainment and the iconic Volkswagen Campervan display taking centre stage. An area of the site is dedicated to young families, with a ‘Kids-Zone’ which includes interactive games, such as a Campervan Scalextric-style race.


Adrian Vaughan, VolksWorld Organiser, said: “Sandown Park is at the heart of VolksWorld, the venue continues to support our growing number of attendees and new ideas. The team at Sandown are incredibly attentive and always go above and beyond for VolksWorld, this is one of the core reasons we continue to host the event there.”

Tracy Rusbridge, Regional Business Development Executive – Exhibitions – Jockey Club, London, said: “VolksWorld continues to surprise us with new and innovative activities each year, allowing the team to get creative. We’re really looking forward to this year’s event as it’s jam-packed with exciting activities. The atmosphere is electric year-on-year and is guaranteed to put a smile on every visitor’s face.”
