Heroes of Bavaria
On Saturday August 5, you and your friends are invited to experience Heroes of Bavaria: 75 Years of BMW Motorsport.
Your BMW CCA Foundation has assembled 22 exceptionally rare and legendary race machines for your viewing pleasure, in partnership with BMW of North America and private collectors from coast to coast.
You’ll see them all, up close. Get acquainted with the 1937 BMW 328 Roadster that won at Zandvoort in 1939. Peer into the cockpits of the Group 4 and 5 Racing CSLs, including winners at Daytona and Sebring. Look over the LeMans-winning V-12 LMR, the Williams FW-22 Formula One car, and the only factory-built CSL Rally Car in existence. Unless you visited the BMW 100th Anniversary exhibition at Laguna Seca last summer, chances are you’ve never seen this many BMW race cars in one shot.
You might just ausflippen. And you can take all the snaps and video you want. So much fodder for Facebook and Instagram. Don’t blow it!
We’re charging $20 per person ($10 for kids) for this experience. Here’s why. Your BMW CCA Foundation is a nonprofit organization, and exists only through the generosity of its donors. Your admission fee will help to sustain the CCA Foundation Museum & Archive, and it will also help fund Tire Rack Street Survival, a national car-control training program for teenage drivers. We’re grateful to you for your support, and we’ll be excellent stewards of your investment.
You’ll leave with something cool. Your admission fee includes a special Heroes of Bavaria collectible for you to take home. You’ll love it…promise.
This place is worth seeing. The BMW CCA Foundation Museum & Archive is located directly next door to the BMW Performance Center, and across the street from BMW’s largest manufacturing center. The Museum & Archive currently preserves about 45,000 BMW-related items, from rare cars to engines to art. It’s the largest such collection in the Americas.
