For the majority of the year, Helen, GA, is a quiet retreat for tourists to relax and get away from the worries of everyday life. But for one weekend in May, this town is host to an ever-growing enthusiast event known as Southern Worthersee. An event that brings people from all over the country and sometimes the world to show off their cars in an authentic European atmosphere.
At the heart of the American Euro scene is certainly the VAG culture. As we pointed out in our coverage from the Leavenworth Drive 2013, there are some extremely well known events that have established themselves over the years. Just about every region in the US has its own unique European event that draws enthusiasts from all over: H2Oi in the Northeast, a few big ones in California, and one of the most renowned in the Southeast is definitely Southern Worthersee, aka SOWO. While each event has its own assets and defining characteristics, they all share the common passion for what is the Euro scene. Here are our two favorites highlighting the SOWO 2013 event in Helen, Georgia.
