History of this international event

The Bug-Ins story begins on the roads of Orange County International Raceway, California (USA), October 20, 1968. The event aims to bring together the largest number of Volkswagen enthusiasts in a warm and friendly. The success is such that the Bug-In is declined in two versions: one in summer, the other in autumn. The 31st and last edition is certainly one of the most striking with no less than 1,000 VW and 10,000 visitors. Unfortunately, the Orange County International Raceway circuit closed in October 1983, forcing the organizers to rethink their concept. This is how the European Bug-In, the European version of the meeting, was born, which takes its quadrants to the Chimay circuit every two years.
