Are you a fan of Volkswagen
? Would you and a companion like to spend a week in Germany, on Volkswagen’s tab, touring its Wolfsburg plant and taking in the sights of Berlin? Would it sweeten the deal if VW threw in two days of performance driving instruction on the Nürburgring and $750 in spending money?
If you answered yes to those questions, are age 25 or older, live in the 48 continental United States and don’t work for Volkswagen or its subsidiaries, you’re eligible to enter the automaker’s “Golf R Ultimate Fan Experience Sweepstakes,” which began on April 12 and runs through the end of the day on May 14.
There are two ways to enter: if you own an iPad, download the free “Golf R Drivers Forever” app
, which also gives you complete details about the new Golf R
, as well as an overview of Golf GTI history. Launching the latest version of the app will give you the option to enter the contest by describing, in 256 words or less, why you should win.
If you don’t have an iPad, you can enter by mailing Volkswagen a 3-inch by 5-inch piece of paper with your name, address, daytime phone, email address and date of birth in a hand-addressed envelope (to eliminate machine entries). Full details, as well as the address to mail your entry to, can be found on Volkswagen’s website
It’s worth reading the fine print to make certain you meet all the eligibility requirements, especially if you’ve never traveled internationally or currently lack car insurance coverage. For one lucky winner, however, we’re guessing this contest will live up to its billing.
