The virtual tour will allow users to walk through the Club Car and discover the rooms on the new trains, a number of which will be en-suite.

The event will run on Sunday August 19 and Monday August 20. And those who attend will be able to enter an exclusive competition to be in with the chance of winning a return trip for two on the new trains.
