BimmerFile at BMW CCA Octoberfest (Updated)

Friday is a big day on BimmerFile. We ‘ll be heading over to the Road America as the sun is rising to get some (passenger) seat time in a few of BMW ‘s most famous race cars of the last 25 years.

But perhaps most importantly we ‘ll be reporting live from Dr. Kay Segler ‘s presentation (head of the BMW M Division) around 7 pm (CST) Friday night. We expect big things (especially around 7pm)so make sure to check back throughout the evening. In fact the photo stream above will be updated throughout the next 24 hours so when in doubt come back to the site, we ‘ll have the latest right there. And as always we ‘ll have exclusive interviews and video of everything that happens at the event.

How to find Us

Yes that ‘s me on the right. So if see a guy who looks like that with various cameras and electronics it ‘s probably me. I ‘ll also be in my ’88 535is (yes I drove my vintage BMW three hours through Wisconsin) when I ‘m not drooling inside the various vintage race-cars.

How to Keep Up To-Date

You can follow us right here on BF as we ‘ll be live-blogging Dr. Kay Segler ‘s speech. We ‘ll also be posting to twitter.com/bimmerfile throughout the day from all of our various experiences at the largest BMW gathering in North America.

Did we mention we ‘re excited? It ‘s honestly a little hard to not think about Jack Pitney ‘s untimely death today when thinking about the world of BMW. But there ‘s little question that he would have wanted us to enjoy the time we have here, with friends new and old. And we intend to do just that throughout the next 24 hours.

    Ditto. Been having a blast but would like to see you guys if you are here. There have been a few E86 M Coupes on course so i have been happy. 🙂

  • I’ll be one of the members of the press riding shotgun in the BMW NA race cars Friday morning. I’ll have my white 88 E28 535is in tow. I’ve also added a photo above from the about section.

    Wanted to see more of the car last night :(. Gabe – I’m guessing Kay was talking about you when he said he was questioned by a journalist about BMW and car FEEL!:)
