Quotes from a 2017 BMW Wiesn Sport-Stammtisch:

 
Jens Marquardt (BMW Motorsport Director):

“I demeanour brazen to a BMW Wiesn Sport-Stammtisch each year. It
is unequivocally special to accommodate a athletes from a several sporting
disciplines. Hopefully this day will give us that additional bit of
proclivity for a arriving DTM weekend in Spielberg, during that we want
to go on full conflict again. Marco Wittmann and Augusto Farfus were at
a BMW Driving Experience in Maisach to get in a mood for the
Wiesn, and met a new BMW M Brand Ambassador Lena Gercke. we don’t
know how good a motorist she was already, yet we wish that she is even
improved now after assembly a dual guys.”

Lena Gercke (BMW M Brand Ambassador):

“My day started with a lot of adrenalin. My initial BMW Driving
Experience with Marco Wittmann during my side was refreshing and funny
during a same time. we cite to be behind a circle and am not a good
newcomer unfortunately. Even when a motorist is pro like Marco,
nonetheless he knows accurately what he is doing. The cars have so much
power, it is incredible. It was sparkling to see how a automobile reacts in
opposite situations. we unequivocally schooled a lot. After a adrenalin
rush it was time to relax. we was unequivocally looking brazen to the
Oktoberfest. Coming from northern Germany, we haven’t been unequivocally often,
yet we have done it once or twice. It is always unequivocally loose in
Käfer’s. we got to know a guys from a different, some-more relaxed
viewpoint there over a meal, and it was good and cosy sitting with
a whole team.”
 
Alessandro Zanardi (BMW Brand Ambassador, BMW works driver):

 “Unfortunately, we wasn’t during a BMW Wiesn Sport-Stammtisch last
year, so we am gay to be means to suffer this enchanting Wiesn
atmosphere again. It is always special when we get to accommodate adult with
good friends and splash a good splash in good company. But not too many,
given we am in a center of scheming for another large eventuality – the
triathlon in Barcelona in usually underneath dual weeks. Still, a Oktoberfest
is a ideal eventuality to applaud a universe championship title
that we won in South Africa recently.”
 
Marco Wittmann (BMW DTM driver):

“That was a totally opposite Wiesn opener – knocking down cans
from a BMW i3 and decorating gingerbread hearts while drifting. I
unequivocally enjoyed a BMW Driving Experience. we had a payoff of
holding Lena Gercke on a flapping lap. But a new BMW M Brand Ambassador
did a good job. Then it was on to a fairground. The atmosphere at
a Wiesn is unique. we spent a few illusory hours with a other athletes.”
 
Augusto Farfus (BMW DTM driver):

“The day during a Oktoberfest couldn’t have got off to a better
start for me than with a quick cars and a hurdles during a BMW
Driving Experience. It was an engaging brew of speed and skill. I
unequivocally enjoyed it. Naturally, celebrating during a Wiesn is totally
opposite to anything that we am used to as a Brazilian. But as shortly as
we put on a Lederhosen, we turn a tiny bit Bavarian – as much
as is possible. And somehow a Oktoberfest reminds me a tiny bit of
a satisfactory in Brazil. The people all come here for one reason; they
wish to have fun and celebration together peacefully.”
 
Rosi Mittermaier (BMW Winter Sports Ambassador):

“I always unequivocally demeanour brazen to this event, given it is a
get-together with athletes that we know well. And a Wiesn is nice
and loose in a morning. Besides, a BMW Wiesn Sport-Stammtisch is
roughly something of a tradition now. It is good to accommodate athletes from
all kinds of disciplines, who we know from television, and get to
know them. You accommodate some of them each year, and good friendships
grow. That’s usually what a Wiesn is all about: we accommodate up, celebrate
together, eat together and have fun.”
 
Stefan Glowacz (BMW Outdoor Ambassador):

“The start in Maisach was fantastic. On a one hand, events
like that are always good for assembly and articulate to athletes from
other areas. And on a other hand, it is good to get together with
racing drivers and instructors that can learn we something. You
always consider we are a unequivocally good driver, yet a pros are in a
totally opposite dimension. It is unequivocally illusory for car
fans. we got a few profitable tips from Augusto Farfus on how to drift
a right way. As a speed freak, a circuit plea with a GTS
cars was my favourite part. It was pristine power, even yet as an
pledge we can usually get around 40 percent out of a car. Now I’m
looking brazen to a relaxing partial of a day in a tent. You have
a bit of time to speak to a other athletes. The final few years, we was
sat subsequent to Prince Poldi, that was unequivocally amusing.”
 
Sven Fischer (BMW Biathlon Ambassador):

“It is always good to accommodate adult with people who we haven’t seen
for a few months or even a year. In that sense, it is a good get
together for former and active athletes, and a poetic tradition that
lives on. Particularly as an athlete, we need to work intensely hard
and professionally, and after a while we need to relax and chill out
a bit as well. This is given it is so critical to attend festivities
such as this one. It’s usually partial of it and thereafter we have
regained adequate strength to keep working.”
 
Prince Leopold of Bavaria (BMW Classic Ambassador):

“Firstly, congratulations to a BMW Driving Experience on its
40th anniversary. The hurdles to get in a mood unequivocally were great
and done a whole thing a bit some-more relaxed. My favourite partial was
throwing a balls, given we remember that from a Wiesn.
Experiencing a eventuality with all a athletes was so most fun. This is
my initial Wiesn revisit of a year given we was on a highway with BMW
Classic. So, we was unequivocally looking brazen to a day. It is always
good to get together with all a athletes and talk. It’s like a
tiny family these days, I’ve been here a few times and know many of
a athletes well. And there are always younger ones joining, who you
can get to know as well.”
 
Francesco Friedrich (Bobsleigh World Champion):

“The kick-off during a BMW Driving Experience was so most fun. It
is implausible when we start a engine and hear that good sound. And
a hurdles were a good understanding of fun as well. It was fascinating
how a BMW i3 gathering but a sound as we were knocking down cans.
The flapping was implausible formidable given a BMW M4 has so much
power. Then during a Wiesn it is always good and relaxed. You accommodate a lot
of people, can speak and take a tiny tour. It’s always good because
we haven’t seen a others for a while.”
 
Johannes Lochner (Bobsleigh World Champion):

“The good thing about events such as this is that we can push
a boundary but most happening. You have room to stratagem to your
left and right, and aren’t endangering anyone else on a road, so you
can unequivocally put your feet down. It is shining for us bobsledders in
particular. And we have a eventuality to get behind a circle of
cars that we wouldn’t differently be means to drive. The Wiesn is always
good as good and a timing is perfect, we came behind from a training
stay yesterday. So, we have a bit of a quieter week this week before
we lapse to a ice channel on 1st October. And it is always an
honour for us to be partial of a BMW event.”
 
Natalie Geisenberger (Luge Olympic Games Gold Medalist):

“I consider it’s illusory to be means to try out these quick cars
and expostulate a few laps in them. It is so most fun in a environment like
this. It is a bit of a foe and a bit of fun, and is a good
warm-up for a Wiesn for everyone. My personal prominence was driving
a BMW M4 GTS. It is something else carrying so most equine power. And
when no other vehicles are on a road, we can unequivocally go for it. Now
it’s on to a Käfer tent for a Wiesn Sport-Stammtisch. It is a real
tradition these days. You lay down together in a loose atmosphere,
eat something, and one or dual people will no doubt have something to
splash as well. I’m behind in contrast as of tomorrow and right in the
center of scheming for a season, so we can’t. But it’s a good change anyway.”
 
Georg Hackl (Luge Olympic Games Gold Medalist):

“I always unequivocally suffer a Oktoberfest and was looking forward
to a cold splash in a marquee. It is always something special to meet
a other BMW athletes. we suffer a conversations and swapping ideas
with them given they are all experts who are unequivocally deeply secure in
their sport. You can take divided a lot of new experiences.”
 
Felix Loch (Luge Olympic Games Gold Medalist):

“The start in Maisach unequivocally was sensational. It is so most fun
to expostulate a BMW M4 GTS, quite when we can unequivocally put your
feet down but profitable courtesy to your speed like we have to on
a road. Then there was a loose part. It is engaging to meet
other athletes from a BMW family, to speak to them and benefit a new
viewpoint of a sport. We unequivocally had a good understanding of fun.”
 
Mikko Hirvonen (MINI convene driver):

“The Oktoberfest is world-famous. Even in my home nation of
Finland, a people know accurately what a Wiesn is. It is so most fun
to be here. we am always tender by a bid that is done in Munich
for this singular fair. At a BMW Wiesn Sport-Stammtisch we always meet
a lot of engaging athletes, who, like me, are partial of a large BMW
family. It is fascinating to speak to them and learn how they live
their competition and ready for their season.”
