Darts is clearly the preferred game of CV owners.  Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles is giving visitors to its stand at the CV Show the opportunity to play darts with international darts champions, James ‘The Machine’ Wade and Mark ‘The Spider’ Webster.

All this just days after Tachoblog revealed that you can try and beat World Chamion Wolfie at this year’s Truckfest Peterborough.


Two ‘Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles 9 Dart Challenge’ competitions will take place each day across the loadspace of a Volkswagen Crafter dropside, with the dartboard positioned on the vehicle’s bulkhead and the player’s oche (toe line) by the tailgate.

The top two players of each morning and afternoon competition will then be paired up with Mark Webster and James Wade for an exhibition match and the chance to win a signed, Limited Edition Volkswagen Commercial Vehicle dartboard or darts set.

To recreate the atmosphere of a championship darts match, a professional darts referee will be on hand, and for the first two days of the show, Sky Sports’ John McDonald will be the official host and caller.

On the last day of the show, two other celebrity darts players will be attending and playing the winners of that day’s competitions.  They are Arron Monk, the 2011 Under 21 World Champion and Australian Paul ‘The Asset’ Nicholson.

‘I’m delighted to be taking part in the Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles 9 Darts Challenge and am sure it will be one of the more unusual attractions at the CV show,’ James Wade told Tachoblog.
