If you haven’t had an opportunity to visit the BMW CCA Foundation’s collection of cars and memorabilia, reading this article will definitely motivate you to change that.
Here’s a short excerpt to wet your appetite.
“If you can enter the BMW Car Club of America Foundation’s collection of Motorsport racing history without having your breath taken away entirely, you might exclaim “Wow,” “Holy…,” or some string of happy expletives that I won’t try to guess at. Whether a fan of the marque or not, there is little argument against their prominence in racing—after all, this is the company that’s earned F1 titles, Le Mans victories, a win at the Mille Miglia in its heyday, countless touring car championships, etc.—and the Foundation nests quite a few of these special competitors.
With over 50,000 (yeah, thousand) artifacts on hand, and more than 20 historically significant BMW automobiles parked among them, every nook and cranny of the 15,000ft² facility is filled with physical heritage that is bound to grab your attention, or at least briefly until a neighboring piece draws your eye. Located in Greer, South Carolina, next to the BMW Manufacturing Plant, BMW Zentrum, and the BMW Performance Center, the Foundation helps constitute the largest concentration of the company’s facilities in America.”
