Legends of the Autobahn
Legends Of The Autobahn® concours has become a local and regional sensation. In 2011, with the North American debut of the BMW 328 Hommage concept car, the event gained international recognition. In 2012 we saw the debut of BMW's Zagato Z4 Roadster concept, and there are always many rare models to be seen.
Although the Legends Of The Autobahn is still a relatively recent arrival on the Monterey scene, it has sustained exponential growth since its 2009 debut as a stand-alone BMW concours. Event organizers, recognizing the potential for a "German alternative" event during the annual Monterey Sports Car Weekend, invited the Mercedes-Benz club for the 2010 event—an expansion so well received that we were pleased to announce the addition of Audi in 2012.
So join the BMW Car Club of America, the Mercedes Club of America, and the Audi Club of North America—the world's preeminent German-marque car clubs—at the new location of the annual Legends Of The Autobahn concours d'elegance.

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.
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.
