The Mitty is recognized as one of North America’s most prestigious vintage racing events. Sanctioned by Historic Sportscar Racing (HSR), The Mitty attracts a diverse lineup of legendary machines from all eras and brings them back on track just as they raced in their glory years. It’s like a living, breathing museum of racing history unleashed on the famous Road Atlanta circuit. Whether your interest is Can-Am, F1, Trans-Am, Camel GTP, or even NASCAR- you’ll find a great lineup of cars that is sure to bring back memories.
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.
