Volkswagen Middle East pulled off another successful edition of the Dub Drive, a collection of Volkswagen owners and clubs from across the region, congregating in Dubai with the obligatory mega convoy. This years saw 800 visitors for the event that had 268 entries from owners from Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Oman, Kuwait, Lebanon and the United Arab Emirates.
This year the event was thrown open to the public. “Dub Drive was introduced in 2017 to highlight our dedication to our fans in the region. This year’s event has surpassed our expectations and we could not have created this without the unity and commitment of the seven different Club’s from across the GCC, coming together as one big family. The energy of the regional Volkswagen community and the passion that owners and fans have for the brand is overwhelming and pushes us to better serve our customers through creating these unique brand experiences,” commented Andrew Savvas, Brand Director, Volkswagen Middle East.
Needless to say, an event of this scale could not have happened without the active presence of the RTA, Dubai Police and Civil Defence. It was also supported by Emirate Motorsport Federation.
Jost Capito, Managing Director of Volkswagen R GmbH was also present, using the event to connect to performance fans. This year’s Dub Drive Car of the Year Award went to Sameh Helal, from Wolfswagen AUH Club and the Volkswagen Oman Club won the ‘Club of the Year’ award.
