BMW: SPEEDFEST AT THE MITTY!

Legendary BMW racer Boris Said will be honored as Grand Marshal at the Classic Motorsports Mitty at Road Atlanta this weekend.
BMW USA Classic will be well represented at this weekend’s Classic Motorsports Mitty Speedfest, at Road Atlanta in Braselton, GA, April 24-26, 2015. Charismatic BMW racer and retailer, Boris Said, will be honored as this year’s Grand Marshal for the vintage races featuring over 300 cars. Said was an integral part of the BMW Team PTG years, co-driving to many victories including the Rolex 24 At Daytona, the 12 Hours of Sebring, and the Petit Le Mans. Said is the only American to have won overall at the famous Nürburgring 24 hour race, co-driving a BMW Motorsport M3 GTR in 2005.

BMW USA Classic will support the event as a special treat for the thousands of sports car racing fans. Anchoring the BMW corral on top of the famous hill at Road Atlanta, the BMW USA Classic transporter will showcase four key vehicles from BMW racing history, including the 2015 BMW Z4 GTLM No. 25, the 1975 BMW 3.0 CSL IMSA Group 4 Racer, the BMW Team PTG E36 M3 Coupe IMSA Racer (1999 configuration), and the BMW Team PTG E46 M3 GTR ALMS Racer (2006 configuration).

Each day of the event, Honorees Boris Said and Brian Redman will be invited to complete parade laps of Road Atlanta in cars bearing their names: the BMW Team PTG E36 M3 and 1975 3.0 CSL. Race fans will enjoy the sites and sounds of these legendary sports cars that bear an incredible connection through BMW design and engineering.

Speedfest at the Classic Motorsports Mitty has been held at Road Atlanta since the early-1980s. In that time, it has grown into one of the largest vintage racing festivals in the U.S. Each year, hundreds of the greatest racecars in history compete in more than 25 heats.
