Bimmerfest East on Hiatus Following Track Shut Down


With the unfortunate closure of Englishtown Raceway Park's drag strip, we regret to announce that Bimmerfest East will take the year off.

The venue has long been the home of this and other enthusiast events but has since leased its drag strip to Insurance Auto Auctions for car storage. As a result, Englishtown Race Park became insufficient for our needs.

While the cancelation of 2018's event is unfortunate, it's by no means the end for Bimmerfest East. As this is written we're looking for a new location to host the event, which will come back bigger and better in 2019.

In the meantime, Bimmerfest West will go ahead as planned. Like last year, the event will be held at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, California. Taking place on May 26 and 27, the event will feature autocross, Battle of the Bimmers, the BMW Heritage Corral, a track day, and a whole lot more.

We appreciate your patience as we look for a new venue on the east coast.
