This weekend, Volkswagen kicked off their cross Canada Freedriving Tour in Coquitlam, BC at the local mall which just happens to be a few minutes from my house.
It’s a fun twist on the traditional vehicle test drive where you’re able to get behind the wheel and take any VW for a spin on a closed course and really push it while being instructed by a professional driver.
I documented my drive in a 2011 Tiguan by sticking my GoPro camera to the hood. VW already had one inside the car (I’ll post the footage in a few days once they post it) to show your reactions to some of the maneuvers they get you to try.
It was a little wet on the morning I did my drive but that only added to the fun. As I write this, there was still some spots left to take the tour in Coquitlam this weekend and then VW takes everything to the next town on their tour.
Thanks to Volkswagen for having me out and Frank for being my backseat cameraman.
