The BMW M Festival has been held yearly for a few years now, becoming a tradition for most enthusiasts. It has been the host of several BMW premieres like the facelifted F10 M5, and every year it has a surprise prepared for the M fans.
Tickets are on sale now, and to get the word out, BMW put together a short compilation of footage recorded at previous events. The sixth M Festival edition will coincide – once again – with the 24-hour Nurburgring endurance race where you’ll be able to see BMW’s race cars on the track, live, from the VIP area. If you wish, you can also follow the race right beside the Grand Prix circuit in the BMW M Hospitality area. If you’re a BMW M car owner, you’ll be able to put your ticket up for a raffle for a chance to get to drive your car on the Nurburgring’s North Loop during the M Night.
The event will take place between May 27 and May 29, 2016 and will set you back 449 Euros for the M Festival Package alone. That includes the ticket for the 24-hour race, access to the starting grid, access to the M Festival VIP areas, shuttle service, access to the M Night, VIP catering, a chance to win the raffle – for the M Corso around the North Loop – BMW M Welcome Package and guided tours through the paddock and pit boxes.
However, it does not include the accommodation – BMW will provide a list of nearby hotels for the two nights you need to spend in Nurburg – or the parking which will set you back another 19 Euros.
