Our No. 82 BMW M4 GT4 is a blazing fast racecar driven by fearless competitors and supported by a great BimmerWorld team.

The national media, spectators, supporters and fans watching the IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge at Laguna Seca will experience this OPTIMA-Veristor-BimmerWorld GS Class car in all its glory — emblazoned with the names of our donors’ loved ones affected by all forms of dementia.

100% of every donation goes to our charity partners. All marketing and administrative costs are underwritten by the founding sponsor, Legistics.

The first 20 donations are tripled when BimmerWorld and Legistics both match them. So do it now!

about alzheimer's

Alzheimer’s afflicts 5.7 million Americans and over 50 million people worldwide, with tragic consequences for the individuals, families and societies grappling with its devastating effects.

A degenerative brain disease, Alzheimer’s currently has no cure. However, enormous progress is being made toward understanding the nature and mechanisms of the disease; formulating new treatments and diagnostics; and providing effective and compassionate support for overwhelmed caregivers. Every day brings new hope.

These promising new developments deserve our urgent, full-throttle help. The non-profit Racing to End Alzheimer’s Foundation is dedicated to raising awareness and funds for the cutting edge research, treatment and support services that will end the scourge of Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia once and for all.

funding the cure.

In 2019, our donations will be split among three deserving organizations. The Nantz National Alzheimer Center at Houston Methodist is vigorously pursuing cutting-edge research aimed at delaying the progression of the disease or stopping its course. UCLA Cognitive Health Clinic provides much-needed care for families of dementia sufferers. Baycrest Foundation provides care, education and innovation, and is one of the most research-intensive hospitals in Canada. Every penny we raise goes to a worthy charity partner.

Won’t you please add your loved one’s name now?

During our first year — in just 6 weeks — we welcomed almost 5,000 fans to our Racing to End Alzheimer’s page on Facebook. We have nearly 10,000 now. If you’re one of them, we’re enormously grateful to you for helping to spread the word and keeping this cause vibrant.

Now we need you to get back into the action. Post on Facebook and Instagram. Tell your friends. Donate.

about the race team

In 2018, our team won the ST championship in the No. 81 BimmerWorld/Legistics/Veristor/YouRulz BMW. This year, James Clay and Devin Jones are off to a great start in the No. 82 BMW M4 GT4! Backed up by a seasoned and unflappable BimmerWorld crew, and supported by OPTIMA Batteries and Veristor, they have a great shot at the 2019 championship in the GS Class.

Legistics and friends are racing their No. 23 Audi RS3 in the TCR Class. Let’s give them a run for their money by loading our BMW with names and raising more money in one race than they have! Step up and support your favorite mark: BMW!
