First off, a BIG thank you needs to go out to everyone that made this event happen today including but not limited to, Nitto Tire, Bonneville Motor Werks, Race Technologies / Brembo, Falken Tire, evosport, BR racing and of course each and every one of the incredible attendees! The 2008 event has once again blown past our expectations and proven again that BMW enthusiasts are the greatest group of people in the automotive world...showing up in record numbers to celebrate the ultimate driving machine.

The Battle of the Bimmers, sponsored by Bonneville Motor Werks, was a great display once again this year and provided us with some new winners in the categories. The winners this year were:

We are also happy to report that thanks to everyone out there, the Unity Shoppe of Santa Barbara had an incredible day in regards to the Opportunity Drawing. Some great prizes were donated from companies such as Falken Tire, Eurobahn, Dinan, Active Autowerke, B&M Racing, VM Werks and many more. Thank you SO much to everyone that bought tickets and to all the vendors who donated the great products to help the Unity Shoppe of Santa Barbara.

It is always a sad thought when the end of the day rolls around and everyone realizes it is the end of another year. There will be plenty of photos and videos posted online to remind us throughout the year of how much we all enjoyed the show and to keep us thinking about next year. Stay tuned to for all the latest infomration about Bimmerfest Santa Barbara and an upcoming announcement of a show for those out on the east coast!

See you next year,

The Bimmerfest Team
