BMW to put on big show at Goodwood Revival

BMW will be showing a collection of historic BMWs, Minis and Rolls-Royces at the Goodwood Revival from September 14.

Highlights will include a BMW 507, BMW 503 and BMW Isetta, along with the Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud, and Peter Sellers’ classic Mini.

BMW Motorrad will be offering a garage for the true enthusiast with motorcycles such as the BMW R 24, BMW R 26, BMW R 51/2 with sidecar, and the BMW R 69 S. Parked in the motorcycle garage will be a Husqvarna CR 400 once owned by Steve McQueen.

On show outside the four BMW Group garages will be another highlight – the BMW 328 in which Sir Stirling Moss won his first car race.

A further attraction at the airfield will be the Klemm 25 aircraft of 1927 powered by a BMW Xa aero-engine, which will be taking part in the Freddie March Spirit of Aviation competition. The 5-cylinder radial engine with 60 hp output has been deployed since 1937 and, along with the aircraft, has undergone a full restoration. On completion in 2008, the Klemm 25 was registered as Germany’s oldest aircraft with standard certification.

“The Goodwood Revival is the perfect place to bring alive the successful heritage of our brands in an authentic ambience,” says Karl Baumer, Director of BMW Group Classic.
