Each year the BMW Car Club of America throws a party – a world famous party known as Oktoberfest and sometimes simply O’fest. This movable celebration of everything BMW occurs at exciting locations throughout the country and is the ultimate motorsport family reunion. This year we are fortunate enough to have our family reunion presented by Michelin!
Oktoberfest veterans will tell you it’s all about meeting old friends and making new ones that brings them back year after year, so we offer a social calendar that is as full as our driving schedule. We’ll begin with the Colorado BMW Centers’ Welcome Reception on Monday evening. On Tuesday, Pirelli Concours d’Elegance will be the main attraction. Whether you’ve entered your car for concours judging or not, you really must come out to view the many incredible BMWs that have been prepared with hours of loving care. The entire day is spent in appreciation of beautiful machinery; it’s a great opportunity to view the cars and socialize! As the week progresses, we will be treated to a strolling dinner through the Village of Beaver Creek presented by Liberty Mutual, iRacing tournaments (a first for O’fest) and of course, the annual BMW NA Awards Dinner.
But you know that BMW is all about driving— and if you’re after the ultimate driving experience, you won’t be disappointed. There are plenty of opportunities to hone your driving skills, on the way to O’fest, at the Rocky Mountain Chapter High Performance Driving Event. If you’re not quite ready for the track, the BMW CCA Foundation Car Control Clinic is an opportunity to learn how your car will behave during situations that you might experience any time you leave your driveway. And you can put those skills to good use at the Bridgestone Autocross, where you’ll need driving finesse and agility to master the challenging course. Finally, matching your wits and math skills with fellow members in the Odometer Gears TSD Rally may be more your speed (no pun intended.)
Whether your aim is to improve your driving skills during one of our Oktoberfest driving events, set a new autocross record or simply to meet up and spend time with old Club friends, you will have a wonderful experience!
This year’s Oktoberfest is presented by Michelin.
