What’s On


Drive Out Our drive out will leave the V-Dub Island site on Saturday morning. You will travel in groups of vehicles each headed by an Island vehicle who knows the route. You’ll be guided right through the heart of the beautiful ‘back of the Wight’ before turning for a trip along what we think is the most stunning coastal road in the UK. Finishing at Isle of Wight Pearl where you can enjoy a bite to eat in the Pearl Café and treat yourself to Isle of Wight Pearls exclusive jewellery charm which can be fitted to any piece of jewellery as a lasting memento of your 2017 VDUB Island adventure. Don’t miss our charity tassel bracelet supporting KissyPuppy with £5 donated from the sale of each bracelet. Admire all the vehicles competing in the Show and Shine and don’t forget to vote for the visitor’s choice.

We’re hoping for an even more popular drive out this year, so look out for the timing notices when you arrive on site, and details of the route can be collected from DAMAGE V-Dub Club in the Dub Arena.

Run to the Surf V-Dub Island 2016 will see the return of the very popular Run to the Surf Competition, held against the backdrop of The Needles in Compton Bay, one of the Island’s most beautiful beaches. The V-Dub Island drive out leaves the event site and takes you on a trip through the picturesque countryside of the West Wight, before leading you to a designated parking field next to the beach where you will be able to get involved or just watch as the competition unfolds, before returning to the V-Dub Island site for a pint of our special local ale.
