Yay! The Up GTI is finally on-sale… Not quite. Even though the Up GTI doesn’t officially arrive in the UK until next year, VW sent a pre-production (but near-enough ready) one to Scotland for the epic that was Speed Week 2017, giving us the opportunity to see what it’s like on your typical British B-road long before anyone else. Happy days indeed. Scotland. Did it rain? Hell yes it rained - we’d have been disappointed if it hadn’t. There was always a risk that in such company the Up would feel a bit slow, soft and…unserious. And sure enough, at times it did. But rain is the great equalizer, which is how once we left Knockhill, it managed to keep some of the super-serious stuff properly honest. Standing water, see. Hilarious.
