The BMW 02 Club is celebrating this very special BMW model series lauded the world over for its cult status on a four-day excursion all around Munich and Oberammergau. More than 550 entrants from 16 countries are expected to attend the event with their BMW 02 Series. From 15 - 18 June, the Bavaria Tour will take participants through the beautiful Alpine region all around the famous festival town of Oberammergau.
On Friday the participants will be hosted by BMW in Munich, with the cavalcade of some 270 BMW classics making an appearance at Theresienwiese as the guests of BMW. There, right beneath the Bavaria statue, an array of cars in the bright colours of the '60s and '70s will cover an area of about 6500 sqaure metres.
Participants and visitors will enjoy food, drinks and musical entertainment at the nearby Transport Centre of the world-famous Deutsches Museum. The close cooperation of the Transport Centre and BMW indeed already proved its benefits on the occasion of the BMW Isetta festivities last year. As a special gift on the occasion of the 40th anniversary of the 02 Series, BMW Mobile Tradition will be proudly presenting the BMW 2002 tii built brand-new from the ground up out of Original BMW Parts on the occasion of this significant jubilee.
