In its second year, the '09 WaterWërks NW event brought together European car enthusiasts for a car show, autocross, food and plenty of activities. The organizers pulled out all the stops to ensure participants and spectators had plenty to do throughout the weekend.

A free BBQ on Friday night was hosted by Auburn Volkswagen to kick off the activities, and they spared no expense feeding at least 400 people with an amazing spread.

The main event was held at Cheney Stadium in Tacoma, WA where a span of the parking lot had been provided on Saturday to Audi, BMW, Porsche and VW enthusiasts for a 1:25sec autocross. This was followed by a VIP-style dinner hosted on the stadium's party deck.

On Sunday, the autocross course was scaled down to make room for the main event;a car show featuring old- to new-school European models, along with several crowd-involving activities.

An all-wheel dyno, car teeter-totter, raffle prizes and can-crushing contest for bagged rides were just a few of the activities. There was also a humorous dunk tank where friends and family could soak local enthusiasts. All proceeds from the activity supported the American Diabetes Association.

Achtuning/Hartmann Wheels rolled out an ensemble of cars, including its S3-converted Audi A3. A Golf Rallye from, plus examples of the Mk6 GTI and TDI from VWoA were all reasons to keep people drooling. And to top it all, VWoA brought the Performance CC SEMA project car as a last-minute surprise (et 2/09).
