Waterfest Afterfest 2015 PASMAG 3

Smoke, sweat and sacrifice. These three words sum up the entirety of Waterfest 21. From humble beginnings in a community college parking lot, Waterfest has grown and evolved over the past two decades to be the go-to VW/Audi car show in North America.

Taking place at Raceway Park in Englishtown, New Jersey, Waterfest attracts tens of thousands of VW an Audi enthusiasts from all over North America to a two-day trade show that showcases over 100 of the very best vendors the industry has to offer!

Back for 2015, Volkswagen Motorsport presented a whole lineup of modified Beetles, including the Red Bull GRC Beetle piloted by Tanner Foust. Waterfest veteran vendors APR, Revo and Unitronic were on-site battling out the war of the VW/Audi performance upgrades, while Underwraps Automotive, Bag Riders and Air Lift Performance took aim at slamming as many 'dubs as possible on air suspension.

AFTERFEST 2015
During Waterfest’s golden years, the spectators took it upon themselves to bring much of the burnout and reckless action of the controlled environment of a race track to the public roads of the surrounding neighborhoods. Naturally, this forced a police crackdown that left many wondering if Waterfest would survive. To cope with this pushback from the local community, Afterfest was created as an official after-party that’s filled with burnouts, low car limbo contests, DJs and live performances, and an invitation-only Show & Shine contest.

Understanding that keeping both vendors and spectators happy while putting on an entertaining show is no easy task. The folks at Waterfest have proven that in the competitive world of VW/Audi car shows, the more smoke, sweat and sacrifice that gets put in, the greater the outcome at the end of the day.

DMCC Round 5 2012: Montmagny, QC

Round 5 of the DMCC series took place in Montmagny, Quebec. The event was originally supposed to be held on the 11th but due to severe thunder storms in the forecast for the first time in DMCC history the event was postponed to the week after. Changing the date of the event was a good move since it was a super nice day but did have its downfall as a few of the regular drivers were not able to make it due to schedule conflicts. The event started early as it was an all-day-and-night event where practice, qualification and completion…

Motion Auto Show & Expo 2011

The Team at ProMotion Distributing has once again out done themselves by bringing us the 2011 Motion Auto Show at the Long Beach Convention Center. Entering the 5th year, they're seasoned in packing the convention centre with hot cars, hot girls, and tones of attendees. Any spectator walking through the show this year would agree, the vibe had a “tuner-enthusiast lifestyle” feel – something HIN had done in years previous – and somehow, a corporate touch in the realm of something such as SEMA. In all, there were 125 vendors displaying the latest products, 300 SEMA-show-worthy rides fighting for trophies,…
