ROCKINGHAM — BMWs took over Rockingham Speedway Oct. 7-9 for North Carolina E30’s Oktoberfest.

NCE30 was founded in 2008 and its annual Oktoberfest, according to its website, is the longest running E30 event in the world and the 2020 gathering was the largest.

For this event, the club enlisted the help of two other organizations familiar with the infamous track.

Motorsport 4the Masses, which held several high performance driver education courses at Rockingham, managed activities on the main track, setting up course that incorporated both the oval and sections of the infield road course.


Meanwhile, MB Drift was over at the Little Rock supervising the drifitng portion of the event.

Although NCE30 is geared toward that particular model, drivers of other cars were invited to join. Over on the drift track, there were several Ford Mustangs — including the one driven by MB Drift’s 2022 season winner Justin Bauer — and Infiniti G35s, and of course, a few BMWs.

This weekend, the speedway is scheduled to host the National Auto Sport Association’s Speedtoberfest.
