Default SwedeSportUK trip to Gothenburg

Gothenburg 2018

I'm in the planning stages of a trip to Gothenburg, it will be the usual flying out on a Tuesday and back on a Wednesday evening, of course you can drive if you wish and it will consist of:

1st day:

Meet the volvo museum after arriving at landvetter (gone are the good old days of Gothenburg city airport lol) cost to go in £7 ish, a real must to volvo enthusiasts.

Evening out in Gothenburg usually at the Chinese buffet and a few beers afterwards.

2nd day:

A trip around the factory on the little blue train and cover from a piece of metal to a finished car.

The brand experience, seeing the direction volvo are heading and cover aspects like safety and examples of crash tests

Lunch in the factory cafe with the workers £6 ish pay on the day.

Driving the volvo demo / test track with the entire range of Volvo's from D2-D6 and T2-T8 (no polestars)

I'm looking at October / November 2018, for several reasons, petrol non hybrid will still be available and it's before the start of Brexit.

Spaces will be limited so get your name down you can see from previous years how popular it is, please only apply if genuinely interested.

Max 25 people and 8 spots are already earmarked to those who have been before and already want to go again.

15 spots now gone!

This will be the last chance to visit before volvo go all hybrid and electric and also before brexit incase that causes issues.

Default SwedeSportUK Gothenburg Trip 2018

Just in the planning stages of the Gothenburg 2018 trip! Should be late 2018 sept-Nov time.

We are planning an extended trip this time, however the shorter trip would still be possible.

Day 1, arrive Gothenburg (myself flight and hire car) and a tour of the volvo museum, will try and arrange a factory guide again this year.

Day 2, visit and tour of the volvo factory on the blue train.
Volvo brand experience centre, encompassing safety centre, innovations / direction of the company and new models, etc.
Lunch at the factory with the workers.
Driving the demo test track with the entire range of new vovlos available v40 d2- Xc90 t8.

Day 3 trip to trollhatten to visit the Saab museum and possibly a couple of stops on the way.

Drive to Stockholm for those interested.

Day 4 a day around Stockholm before leaving (myself flying home)

Some of our group drive and it's our fifth trip now, so plenty of experience available.

Spaces are always very limited maybe 5 more spots available.

Best to contact me via the group as can be days before I pick up messages Group link:

For those interested, on the way to Stockholm from Gothenburg is the Swedish Air Force Museum (Flygvapenmuseum), just off at Linkoping near Malmslatt. It's on the route, just off E4 by 5 minutes.

Put me down as a probable space Steve. I don't know however, if I will be in Florida by that time or not, though.

Will do, steve just confirmed so even less spaces left now lol

That one's in Goteburg with a few Viggens in. I think this trip may end up as a week or so with me going round the various airfields..!
