First Concorso Competizione Sportivo at Warm-Up 4 for MOTORWORLD München
Although Motorworld Munich is still in the middle of the construction phase, it is already turning out to be a new hotspot for fascinating automotive mobility. For example on the last Sunday in August, when not just one, but two event highlights packed with mobile passion will be attracting visitors and drivers to the historical industrial site in the Freimann district of Munich: The first Concorso Competizione Sportivo, and Warm-Up 4 for Motorworld München. It will be worthwhile to keep these days in August free…
Concorso Competizione Sportivo
The new mobility centre that is being created in the Freimann district of Munich is already making the hearts of passionate car fans beat faster. A truly special event will be taking place on Sunday, August 27, from 10 a.m. until around 4 p.m., when the starting signal will be given for the inaugural Concorso Competizione Sportivo. This competition is dedicated exclusively to vehicles with a true racing history, and will be open to 25 legends of motor sport that once unveiled their performance on the world’s most famous racing circuits. And since the Mille Miglia is celebrating its 70th anniversary this year, a special array of various vehicles from different eras and classes that took on the challenge of the legendary 24-hours Le Mans race will be taking part as well.
Warm-Up 4 for MOTORWORLD München
The Concorso is embedded in Warm-Up 4 for Motorworld München. This series of events is intended to arouse curiosity about what is to come. For the fourth time, scene fans, neighbours and interested visitors will have the opportunity to experience an entire world of mobile passion at close hand and in all its diversity. The last warm-up event was attended by more than 4,000 owners of collectors’ vehicles together with around 13,000 visitors. They brought, in the truest sense of the word, movement to the extensive grounds of the former repair works, in whose historical industrial buildings Motorworld Munich will be accommodated by the end of 2018.
On the last Sunday in August, in addition to the competition for legendary racing cars, the attractions will also include special exhibitions of the history and future of mobility, a hot-air balloon, a pedal car race for kids, and guided tours around the imposing construction site. Refreshments will be available from numerous food and beverage trucks.
Free parking, free admission
Admission to Warm-Up 4 for Motorworld München on Sunday, August 27, 2017 (from 10 a.m. until around 4 p.m.) is free. All visitors who arrive by car can park free of charge on the grounds at Lilienthalallee 35, 80939 Munich (subject to capacity). The Warm-Up event is easily accessible by public transport as well. The Munich-Freimann station on the U6 line is just a few minutes’ walk away from Motorworld. More information about the event can be found on Facebook.

About the MOTORWORLD Group
The independent Motorworld Group emerged from the Dünkel Holding, based in Schemmerhofen, Baden-Württemberg. It develops, builds and operates experience worlds dedicated to mobile passion. The first location was Motorworld Region Stuttgart in Böblingen, which opened in 2009 and has since been expanded several times. Further projects and activities under the MOTORWORLD® brand have been initiated in recent years. Three other sites following on the same concept as Motorworld Region Stuttgart are currently under construction: Motorworld München, Motorworld Köln-Rheinland, and Motorworld Zeche Ewald-Ruhr (Herten). Additionally, the start signal was recently given for a further location on the Spanish island of Majorca. Yet another concept with a focus on handicrafts will result in the two cottage industry sites Motorworld Manufaktur Berlin and Motorworld Metzingen. The Motorworld idea also regularly goes on tour, including to the annual classic car trade fairs Motorworld Classics Berlin and Motorworld Classics Bodensee, the Motorworld Classic Car Days at Fürstenfeld (near Munich), as well as in numerous other guises.
