Post Alfa Romeo Announces Bimmerfest AutoCross Sponsorship



One of the must-do events every year at Bimmerfest is the autocross. And this year participants will have Alfa Romeo to thank for making it happen.

Plus, they have a surprise in store!

In addition to being the official sponsor of the Bimmerfest Autocross, Alfa Romeo will be offering registrants AND attendees of Bimmerfest the chance to get behind the wheel of some of Alfa Romeo’s newest products.

For those participating in the autocross in their own car, they’ll have the opportunity to swap rides into a new Alfa Romeo so see how it compares. Plus, for those not already participating in the autocross, you’ll also get the chance to try out an Alfa Romeo. Just head on over to the Autocross location in Big Lot 6 and sign-up (spaces are limited).

And because we know just how massive the AutoClub Speedway venue is, we’ve made the Bimmerfest Autocross sponsored by Alfa Romeo one of the stops on the shuttle. (Don’t know where to catch the shuttle? Just ask at the main Bimmerfest swag tent).

The Bimmerfest Autocross sponsored by Alfa Romeo will be open from 9 am to 5 pm Saturday, May 25th and Sunday, May 26th. Click here to register. We’ll see you there!

OH, and in case you hadn’t heard, we’ll have a team on hand shooting video of the Autocross this year. If you’re planning to attend and want to be in our video, contact us at [email protected]

April Fools Day ???

Alfa Romeo at Bimmerfest ? Did I miss something here?
Bimmerfest West is at Auto Club Speedway this weekend. I think that means a BMW deal, at least according to the history of this event.
Speed Ventures looks like it is doing some part of this as they have the Speedway Roval event the same weekend.
What's next "Camaro the official vehicle of 'Fabulous Fords Forever'".

Aggressive cross marketing to what they think is a target rich opportunity. Either LOTS of confidence or delusions of grandeur. Can't wait for a report.

I guess this really happened, Alfa sponsored the autocross at Bimmerfest 2019.
It may have been a last minute deal. This post from Autoguide.com is the first I heard of it and the event is in our backyard, sort of.
