The club was officially formed on 21st January 1996 at the Gateway Hotel, Nottingham. It originally started life as the ‘Corrado Register’. It’s aim was to catalogue details of as many UK Corrado’s (and their owners) as possible – quite an ambitious task, given that there were over 9,000 of them! News spread by word of mouth, contacts at VW shows, articles in VW Motoring, etc. It soon became clear that a viable club could be formed concerning all aspects ‘Corrado’. The VW Corrado Club of Great Britain was born!
