Boxer sprint, stunt show and wall-ride action
The Boxer Sprint provides a great deal of live action where especially ambitious BMW boxer motorcyclists drag-race over the traditional furlong distance (eighth of a mile). BMW 2 and 4-valve boxers are eligible to enter and a jury selects a team of 16 racers from all applicants. The more outstanding the tuned or customised bike is, the higher the chances are of getting onto the starting grid.
Visitors can inspect all the unique custom bikes in detail in the Custom Village – accompanied by live Rockabilly music in the evening.
If you want to experience how a motorcycle can seemingly defy the laws of gravity, then make sure you visit the amazing stunt show with freestyle artist Mattie Griffin or go toDonald Ganslmeier’s Motodrome. Donald and his team perform breathtaking wall rides on historic motorcycles in the world’s oldest motodrome – barely more than an arm’s length from the spectators.
Riding out into the mountains together
Visitors can test ride a wide selection of current BMW motorcycle models. Registering is recommended and is possible from the beginning of June under: www.bmw-motorrad.com/motorraddays
You can explore the Zugspitz region around Garmisch, one of the most scenic regions in Germany, in full or half day tours as well as on panorama tours with local guides.
