BMW CCA Festorics Corral @ Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion

August 15-17, 2014

Festorics at Laguna Seca

BMW CCA Monterey Weekend's Festorics event August 17-18, 2014, sponsored by BMW NA, the BMW Performance Center, Liberty Mutual Insurance, and BMW CCA, celebrates the mystique of BMW and our appreciation for the marque. Our Weekend starts off Friday morning with the Legend's of the Autobahn at Nicklaus Club-Monterey then Friday night enjoy our Festorics Kickoff Dinner also at the Nicklaus Country Club-Monterey. Saturday and Sunday, join us in our hospitality tent above Turn Five at Laguna Seca to watch the historic-car races, and park your BMW or Mini in our Festorics corral!

Registration packages include the opportunity to buy corral tickets, lunch tickets, the fabulous Festorics Kickoff Dinner ticket, and event tickets to the Reunion races themselves - all from one convenient source! Register Today.

Our Club corral holds over 200 cars, and the 500 members attending each year enjoy comfortable track-side viewing, hospitality tents, and catered meals.

BMW of North America brings classic BMW Motorsport cars to race during the weekend, examples include the 1980 IMSA M1, the 1978 Group 5 320 Turbo, and the 1975 IMSA GT 3.0CSL. Famous drivers such as Bobby Rahal and Jackie Stewart, and others are regularly invited to pilot these cars. Privatly owned BMW racers range from prewar to classic '70s race cars; these race cars occasionally stop by our corral so our members can see them.

The action in Laguna Seca's race paddock is equally breathtaking. Spectators can walk among an incredible array of vintage race cars still warm from their laps on the track—including a few spectacular BMWs; you might catch Ludwig Wilisch, BMW NA CEO, on the track racing a historic BMW!

BMW CCA Festorics

August 15-17, 2014   Gates open at 7 a.m. (Race ticket required)

You will be directed to the BMW parking corral at Turn 5 - make sure you have your corral pass displayed so the parking attendants can see it clearly. When you reach the BMW Corral, volunteers will direct you to the area designated for your series BMW. Once you have parked, you should check in at the registration tent, receive your t-shirt, wristband or lanyard, sign up to volunteer, and have fun!

Enjoy a sumptuous gourmet lunch at the Corral and soak up the magnificent racing ambiance. Mid-day also holds prizes and give-aways, including sets of breaks sponsored by Cool Carbon Performance and the 2 Day Driving School sponsored by Mike Renner and the BMW Performance Center.

Should you decide to attend Festorics, here are some tips to make the most out of your weekend.

Festorics is an outdoor event. Attire should be comfortable and convenient for walking and sitting. Styles range from dressy to resort casual. Temperatures are often cool in the morning and evening, and warm during the day, so layering is recommended. Your event ticket must also be visible at all times.

To fully enjoy your day at Festorics, you might want to bring these items: comfortable walking shoes, sunscreen, sunglasses, a hat, a sweater or jacket, handy wipes, a camera, and a blanket or cushion for the bleachers.

The gourmet lunch is available by pre-purchased ticket in our exclusive CCA hospitality tent above Turn 5. And of course, a multitude of foods are available at concession stands at the event.

Worked hours on detailing your car to show up at Legends, then showed up at Laguna Seca for Festorics, parked in the corral for the Saturday races, and your sweet black car became a dusty grey. Be prepared, that all the cars in the corral will get dusty and dirty.

During the Festorics, visit the Rolex tent to find out the schedule for free guided pit tours to learn fascinating details of special cars racing that weekend.

Arrive by 8:00a.m. at Festorics' parking corral to avoid hours of traffic getting in and ensure a close spot to the hospitality area at Turn 5.

Festorics Marque "Feier den Touringwagon"

The BMW CCA Festorics corral in August will be bustling with the sounds of BMWs. But for added excitement, our attraction car in the corral will be the Touring. "Feier den Touringwagon" (Celebrate the Touring car) - the idea behind a Touring (wagon or estate car) is the comfort of a sedan with enough space for long journeys and big plans. But the only one that guarantees pure driving pleasure is a BMW, or to be exact: a BMW 3 Series Touring or BMW 5 Series Touring.

Each Festorics we select unique, rare, or pristine examples of BMW models to display in the hospitality area of our corral and preferred corral parking. This year we'll be celebrating BMW's fabulous Touring! Do you have a special BMW in this category, and feel that your car deserves to be in the hospitality area of our corral?

See our Touring Stars below, which are expected to appear in our Hospitality Tent.
