If you follow the V.A.G. scene, you’ve probably heard of VAGROOTS, their events tend to take place quite frequently, meaning they’ve already made quite a name for themselves. Unfortunately I’ve never been able to make any of them… until now. I finally managed to get myself up to London for their latest meet, held at the historic Ace Cafe in London.. This time in partnership with RollHard, it was a charity style event to raise money for one of the founders’ daughters (click here to donate!) so there were a few RollHard cars on display, in addition to the expected V.A.G. selection, plus a few surprise BMW’s & Mercedes’. I’ve said it before, but sometimes these little get-together’s can be more enjoyable than full-on car shows. Relaxed, and you can come and go as you please and grab some good grub from the cafe. Check out my highlights:
