The legendary BMW CSL ‘Batmobiles’ were featured at the 2014 Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance, held March 9th on the fairways of the Golf Club of Amelia Island next to the Ritz-Carlton on Amelia Island, Florida.
40 Years ago, in May of 1975, the BMW Motorsport team, based in Hueytown Alabama for the season loaded up the No. 24 and 25 3.0 CSL race cars hit the road. They were headed west for Laguna Seca and Riverside for the next three rounds of the IMSA Camel GT season.
It proved to be a great trip to California with Hans Stuck finishing 2nd and 1st in the two 100 mile sprint races at Laguna Seca. The team then when on to dominant 1 - 2 victory at the 6 hour race at Riverside.
The No. 25 3.0 CSL makes the trip back to the scene of that victory next weekend. Come see us at the Rolex Monterey Motorsport Reunion August 13-16.
