The VW Golf 8 GTI is now available in South Africa in limited quantities but the launch celebrations have only just begun. VW plans on hosting a series of launch events in October. However, they are currently limited in capacity. These Golf 8 GTI events are locked behind special tickets that users need in order to enter the venue. To get one you need to play the newly-released VW Golf GTI 8 On Tour app.

VW says that in order to get entry to one of these launch events, users need to play their way to obtaining a ticket. The app is available on both iOS and Android.
