Speedfest at the Classic Motorsports Mitty

BMW will be the featured marque when the Mitty plans to return to the beautiful Road Atlanta circuit in Braselton, Georgia on April 24-26, 2015. BMW has had a long and storied history in motorsports, and many of these classic race cars will be on display and on track at the Mitty. You may see BMWs from the '70s such as the “Batmobile” BMW 3.0 CSL or a 320i Turbo. Or you might see an '80s BMW M1 Group 4 car, a March GTP racer or the Warsteiner M3.

Off the track, the infield will be buzzing with activity thanks to the Grassroots Motorsports Speedfest at the Classic Motorsports Mitty. Spectators will enjoy car corrals, vendors and an expansive hospitality tent, all while surrounded by the buzzing excitement of HSR-sanctioned historic racing activities that will see over 300 cars competing throughout the weekend.


So whether you’re a BMW fan or just a sports car enthusiast in general, you’ll want to make plans now to attend the 2015 Classic Motorsports Mitty. Mark your calendars for April 24–26, 2015 at Road Atlanta in Braselton, Georgia and plan to load up your BMW – or other favorite sports car – and come be a part of one of the largest vintage motorsports gatherings in the country.

Speedfest at the Classic Motorsports Mitty

Featuring BMW: The 2015 Mitty will showcase the great cars from BMW, and we have several special attractions in the works. If you’re a fan of the Roundel, you’ll find plenty to do at the Mitty.

Amazing Access: At most big-time races, when the cars come off the track, they're hidden away. That's not how things operate at the Mitty. Want a close-up look at an Audi R8, a Porsche 911 RSR or a BMW Batmobile? Prepare to have your senses overwhelmed.

Club corrals fill the Road Atlanta infield. Free test drives are available. Vendors offer amazing finds. Hospitality is available for all. The Classic Motorsports staff is on hand to provide a behind-the-scenes look. And the grand marshal isn’t whisked from motorhome to motorhome, as he’ll be palling around with other race fans all weekend.

The GT Radial Test Drive is a good oportunity for you to thrash on someone else's car and explore the limits of GT Radial Tires. Rotate through a trio of MINIs while sampling three of GT Radial's sports tires. Signing up is free, just head over to the Road Atlanta test track next to the skidpad on Friday and Saturday.

The Traqmate Skidpad Challenge is probably the most fun you will have in your own car off the track over the weekend. Basically, it's a competition to see whose car can grip the best. It'll take place on Sunday, April 26 at the Road Atlanta skidpad. Signing up is free and we have tons of room for more entries. Don't miss out.

The Concours d'LeMons is always a treat. Explore some of yesterdays forgotten an neglected automobiles in a fun, concours-type event. This jalopy invasion will only be taking place on Sunday, April 26.
