Being at Festorics
Festorics is a celebration of the diversity and the mystique of BMW, the cars and their owners and our appreciation for the brand. Since its beginnings Festorics has improved year by year in every one of the aspects by what this event is measured; the exciting setting, the hospitality, the efficient organization, our enthusiastic audience, the awareness at BMW NA, and above all, the elegance, originality and state of preservation of the participating automobiles.
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. Privately 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.
See and hear historic race cars at full speed doing what they were originally intended to do, and that's race. The action in Laguna Seca's race paddock is equally breathtaking. With the racing smells lingering in the air, spectators can walk among an incredible array of vintage race cars still hot from their laps on the track—including spectacular BMWs.
Join us for the BMW CCA Monterey Weekend, featuring Legends Of The Autobahn and BMW CCA Festorics Corral and Hospitality at Laguna Seca!

With 2018 being the 50th Anniversary of the 2002, we'll be featuring 2002s owned by some of our members and instagram socialites; some of which have seen at Legends Of The Autobahn and BMW CCA Festorics events. Why is the BMW 2002 such a cool car in the first place? It's a small, plain, curve-less automobile from an era that gave us skinny ties, the Vietnam war, aluminum beer cans, and the Stones. But this little jewel of a car, which cost about $4000. back in the 60s, is for the guy with style and taste, not just cash (leave that to the M drivers).
40 Years M1
We'll also be looking back on the debut of the BMW M1 40 years ago. The series version of the BMW M1 generated power of 277 hp and had a top speed of more than 160 mph, making it the fastest German road-sports car. The Procar Series provided part of the program for the European Formula 1 World Championship races, and the BMW M1 lined up with a 490 hp engine. It bridged the gap between yesteryears's heavyweights and modern versatile super cars and is rightly regarded as one of the all-time classic super cars.
Instafamous at Festorics
Meet the social media influencers who are redefining their BMW's celebrity through their social connections with like-minded enthusiasts. Their Instagram following is yet another example of how the timeless cool of the BMW is unwavering and why we'll never, ever get tired of the little Bimmer that could. Following are a few examples of the instafamous cars and their owners you may run into at Festorics 2018.
