Last weekend, one of the largest west coast VW/Audi events took place in Las Vegas, Nevada. It’s simply known as Wuste(woo-stuh or voo-stuh), and it has been going strong for 5 years now. It’s about time CAMAutoMag took a road trip to check it out. Click ‘Continue Reading’ to check out the pics and videos.
The trip started in Salt Lake City where we met up with some of the local group for a good old-fashioned convoy down to Vegas and we picked up a few more cars down in St. George, UT where we stopped for food. Now Mike would normally accompany me on these trips, but he graciously stuck back and covered the MPRA/Lap Battle/Drift event happening at Miller Motorsports Park. So this time I brought along my good friend Spyder to help man the clicky-thing while I was driving and while I was doing video at the show.
Wuste began on Friday with a pool party(sorry, no pics) and Saturday starts off in the late morning(thanks for not making it early) with a drive up Mt. Charleston. Having been to Las Vegas many, many times, I’m ashamed to admit I had no idea this scenic driving road existed. It was about 30 miles from the show to the stopping point, but it was gorgeous and the locals feasted their eyes on a mile long convoy of V-Dubs, Audi’s, and BMW’s. We counted 102 cars total making the trek! The most surprising part of the drive, it was a balmy 60-degrees at the 8200ft. elevation of the parking lot, so I donned a coat with my shorts and flip-flops that were more appropriate for the 90+deg. temps back at the show.
The show then kicked off at 5pm with music, food, and generally a good atmosphere for cars. Needless to say, we’re already making plans for a return next year. Check out the pics and video!
