Fastivus 2016 was held on August 13th and 14th at Auto Club Speedway. Join our mailing list to keep up to date on our plans for 2017. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for sponsorship information.
Fastivus 2016 was amazing...
Another Fastivus has come and gone and this year was another huge success, thanks to Volkswagen, HPA Motorsports and our amazing sponsors who make this event possible. One thing for sure, it was HOT... 106 degrees was a lot to handle, but it was no match for the pure love and enthusiasm of the Fastivians!
Thank you Volkswagen USA for coming out again with an awesome fleet of cars (loved the Golf Alltrack and the '857 original miles' 1981 Scirocco), bringing Tanner Foust and Scott Speed along with an amazing floor display with tons of free goodies... but most importantly, knowing that VW corporate knows and cares about our community of Southern Californian Volkswagen diehards means the world to us. We sincerely appreciate the love and support!
Thank you HPA Motorsports for being our title sponsor. It's so nice to know that HPA was one of our very first sponsors dating back to 2004, and now, 12 years later you still support us in a huge and meaningful way. We know that the drive down from British Columbia, Canada to SoCal isn't an easy trek... so please know that every attendee is thankful for your dedication to the brand and enthusiast. By the way, we loved seeing the modern day Scirocco along with the rest of the impressive HPA fleet!
Thank you Galpin Volkswagen for all of the love and support you provide Fastivus. From the amazing trophies, big banners, amazing display of vehicles from Galpin Auto Sports to of course, the amazing tacos you provided the pre-party goers on Saturday... just like in business, you demonstrated how Galpin goes above and beyond the call of duty. Honored to be associated with the Galpin VW family.
Thank you to all of our raffle sponsors who provide a ridiculous set of prizes for our "World Famous Raffle". I have yet to see any event ANYWHERE that has the type of raffle that we have at Fastivus. From companies who have been with us since 2004 to new companies that just joined us this year, each prize that the sponsors provided were extremely generous... please know that each and every Fastivian is grateful for what you all provide.
And last but not least, thank you Fastivians. By no means are we even close to being one of the largest VW events in the country in terms of number... yet we receive such strong support from the companies mentioned above and it allows us to keep the event going year after year. We even get Volkwagen USA to bring out Tanner Foust and Scott Speed, which is unique to Fastivus. I truly believe it is because we as a collective make up a different and unique caliber of "enthusiast"... ones that are as concerned about the "go" as much as the "show". What we have built over the last 12 years is something very special, and I feel fortunate that as we've grown from 7 people to over 1,300 attendees, our amazing culture and core "goodness" has remained the same. Thank you everyone for taking the time to come out, endure the heat and helping to make this year's Fastivus the best event to date!
It's been an amazing weekend that has once again created great memories that will last forever. I am truly grateful that I am able to organize an event like Fastivus for everyone who attends. Until next year...
