This is the official exhibition book for Heroes of Bavaria: 75 Years of BMW Motorsport. Opened to a sell-out crowd at the BMW CCA Museum & Archive in May 2017, Heroes of Bavaria featured 24 rare and exotic BMW race cars, spanning 75 years of track history. The exhibition was so popular, it was later featured at the LeMay-America's Car Museum in Seattle-Tacoma through May 2019.
From the 1938 BMW 328 Roadster that won at Zandvoort in 1939, to the first BMWs to win sanctioned races in North America, to the PTG championship M3s, the BMW-powered McLaren F1 GTR, the Williams FW-22 Formula One car of Ralf Schumacher, to the Z4 GTLM of Bill Auberlen...they're all here in print. Written by Jackie Jouret, the former editor of Bimmer Magazine, the exhibition book for Heroes of Bavaria features;
- Beautiful photography of all 24 exhibition cars, giving you both full views and
detailed interior shots
- A history of BMW Motorsport in North America
- A comprehensive timeline that tells the story in visual form
