New digs at Auto Club Speedway add track activities to the BMW lovers’ mega-event

We were one of the parties a tiny bit bummed Bimmerfest California – one of the largest single-day BMW events in the world – moved from the Rose Bowl in Pasadena this year. For as long as we’ve been hitting the annual gathering, it’s been in the parking lot of the stadium that’s home to the UCLA Bruins football program, nestled in a valley surrounded by upper-middle class suburbs shrouded in lush greenery. But the site also doesn’t have a track or even a suitable space for whipping cars around cones, to some an egregious oversight for celebrating a brand that claims to produce the “ultimate driving machine.”

So for Bimmerfest this year, the 16th edition, organizers set up at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, some 44 miles due east, a racing facility with plenty of space for a huge meet, vendor area and, for the first time, a place to open up your BMW. Circuit activities included street car hot laps, wheel-to-wheel racing and Speed Venture's Bimmer Challenge.

Bimmerfest California again offered much of the standard fare attendees have come to expect from the event. Battle of the Bimmers handed out hardware for categories like Best Female Owned BMW, Best Shop/Vendor Car, Highest Mileage BMW, and Best of Show, among other classes. The Heritage Corral rounded up plenty of classic cars, most driven to the show by their owners. And on vendor row, Bimmerfest had on hand some of the biggest names in BMW tuning, parts and performance.

Event planners were ready for 2,500-plus BMW and thousands more in foot traffic, and we’re quite sure they hit those marks. Peruse the gallery for our complete photo coverage of Bimmerfest California 2015.
