News flash: BMW M5 to appear at Legends concours in Monterey!
Entry deadline closing faster than debt ceiling: August 1!

BMW fans already know that the 328 Hommage will appear at the BMW CCA's Legends Of The Autobahn concours August 19, surrounded by several pre-war 328s. But now we can confirm that the latest masterpiece from M GmbH, the new M5 based on the F10 chassis, will make its first appearance at the three-marque concours-two days before its grand debut at Pebble Beach.

Last year's Legends Of The Autobahn concours presented an amazing array of prewar BMWs, most from Jim and Gloria Smith's collection, but this year the greens of the Rancho Caņada Golf Course in Carmel Valley will treat BMW fans to even more rare beauties. The 2011 Legends concours will be a unique opportunity to get a glimpse of the 328 Hommage concept car, created by BMW to salute that legendary pre-war roadster. The 328 Hommage will anchor a setting that will have not just BMW 328 roadsters on display, but a broad array of BMW history, all the way from BMW's first iconic roadster, the 315/1, to a brand-new 650i convertible. For Legends Of The Autobahn is not just about vintage classics; concours judges will inspect a wide array of BMWs in various classes, from carefully preserved historic icons to brand-new showroom models. And because Legends Of The Autobahn is a three-marque event, you may admire an amazing variety of Porsches and Mercedes models as well.

Whether you opt to enter your car for concours judging, or just reserve a parking spot in the marque corral, you'll want to reserve your place now-click here to register-and get set to enjoy a spectacular Monterey weekend. The Rancho Caņada Golf Course in Carmel Valley is a beautiful location, entry pricing is extremely reasonable, and the vehicles are gorgeous.

But your BMW CCA Festorics weekend is just getting started! Follow the Legends Of The Autobahn concours with a gourmet banquet at Rancho Canada Golf Course-and then get a good night's sleep, because it's off to the race track bright and early Saturday morning to watch the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion (the event formerly known as the Monterey Historics) from BMW CCA's reserved space at Turn 5. There will be special displays of unique BMWs, bleacher seating for your viewing convenience, a fabulous lunch, and special events in our exclusive CCA hospitality tent-including a drawing (Saturday only) to win a two-day M Driving School at the BMW Performance Center!
