Are You Ready for Drive Your VW to Work Day?

In just four weeks’ time, we’ll be celebrating Drive Your VW To Work Day, and filling the carpark at Just Kampers HQ with our own fleet of classic and modern Volkswagens.

Date: Wednesday 22 June 2022
Time: All day!  
Location: All around the world  
More information: Click here to take a look at the event website.

The first Drive Your VW to Work Day was set up 27 years ago, by a number of Volkswagen fan clubs around the world.

Each year the event falls on the same day as the worldwide celebration of the VW Beetle, and June 22nd was chosen as the annual date as it marks the anniversary of the signing of the original VW contract in 1934.

It was established back in 1995 by Dr Bernd Wiersch, from the Auto Museum Volkswagen; Heinz Willy Lottermann, collector of VWs and promoter of the events of Bad Camberg; and Alexander Gromow a historian and lover of VWs who had the original idea for the yearly celebration.

Drive Your VW to Work Day is a great opportunity to get your classic (or modern) Volkswagen out on the road and give yourself a more enjoyable commute than you might have in your ‘daily driver’.

For many of the JK Team, their classic VWs are their daily driver, but for others it’ll be a chance for us to head to work in more style than we usually would!

Whether you’re cruising in a 1950’s Beetle or taking it easy in a modern T6.1, we’d love to see photos of your VW as you commute into work!

We’ll be posting our own photos on Facebook and Instagram, and maybe uploading some videos to TikTok, but we’d love to share your images, too.

Send them through to [email protected], and we’ll share them online and add them to a blog covering the event after its wrapped up.

Need to get your VW ready for Drive Your VW to Work Day?
We’ve got a great range of parts and accessories available for every make and model of Volkswagen you can think of – whether you need to replace your spark plugs, or you’re looking for a new set of seats to make your commute more comfortable, we’ve got you covered.

What will the JK Team be driving on Drive Your VW to Work Day?
There’s an ever-changing roster of classic and modern VWs belonging to the JK Team, which makes keeping our Staff Rides page fully up-to-date a bit of a challenge!

While some of us are happy to hold onto a beloved Volkswagen for years, others are always on the hunt for the next project – often before they’ve finished their existing project.
