Stay tuned for details as they become finalized and available via www.midwesttreffen.com

For 2012 we’re bringing you:

  • A BRAND NEW location for both the Autocross and Car Show!
                      Moraine Valley Community College
                      9000 W College Pkwy
                      Palos Hills, IL 60465
  • New events in the works for “Motorsports Saturday”
  • A greater number of vendors at each event, all weekend!

We’re planning to make Midwest Treffen 16 the best yet so mark your calendars and come
see us in August!

Kudos on the partnership with VWoA! I'd like to hear how that came about, I imagine with them involved, it'll be a GREAT event (not that it hasn't been in the past).
Looking forward to updates!

Because it's a VAG only show...it says "Volkswagen/Audi" all over the website.

Just to clarify:

The Autocross Competition is open to all Europen cars, with non-VAG cars falling into the typical X-classes

The Car Show Compeition is limited to VAG cars

My car is stock and I plan on going. As much as I would like to modify it, I just don't know how or what I should modify to make my car better. Tires is the only area I probably could do better that makes sense to me but just bought my tires and wheels in April and can't afford a set just for racing yet.

Plan on being there Sat, not sure can get there Friday night.
