BMW CCA is pleased to announce an exclusive screening of Stereoscreen's latest award-winning film, NO LIMITS. Shot in 6k, this incredible documentary is about a BMW racing team that was formed around the leg-amputeed driver Alex Zanardi competing at the 24 Hours of Spa (Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps)
Location: Ellicott City, MD (exact address will be sent via email a few days prior to event)
10am Cars & Coffee
11am Social **
12pm NO LIMITS screening
** The format for this event will be similar to our monthly socials. CCA will cover up to $10/member (which includes food and soft drinks), so we'll collect $$ from everyone to help cover the remaining part of the bill (usually $10-20/head including tax and tip). Those who have alcohol or order more expensive food items will need to chip in more than those who stay within the $10/head limit. CCA will not pay for alcohol, so you're on your own tab for that.
Registration: Due to the exclusive nature of this screening, BMW CCA membership is required. Registration will open on March 1st; due to the size of the screening location, this event will be limited to the first 50 BMW CCA members registered.
Everyone who registers will receive an official NO LIMITS poster, courtesy of Stereoscreen & BMW CCA. In addition, BMW of Catonsville, as this event's official sponsor, will be providing very special door prizes for several lucky winners.
From No Limits website:
NO LIMITS - IMPOSSIBLE IS JUST A WORD
A Formula 1 driver, a two-time Indy Car series winner, an athlete, an innovator, a gold-medalist at the Paralympics, but above all, a man with a true champion’s attitude: That’s Alex Zanardi, the main character in the film, who lost his legs, but not his spirit in an almost fatal crash at the Lausitzring in Germany in 2001.
His new adventure takes Zanardi to one of the most famous endurance races in the world: The 24 Hours of Spa-Francorchamps. He shares the cockpit of the BMW GT race car with two of the fastest men in the sport: Ex-Formula 1 driver Timo Glock and touring-car champ Bruno Spengler.
They form nothing less than an all-star team of race-track pioneers, going beyond limits and limitations. Never before has a handicapped driver competed in a 24 hour race on this level with able-bodied drivers.
The documentary covers the whole story: From their first get-together at BMW headquarters in Munich until the lights turn green in Belgium and the Iron Man with plastic legs limps into his racing car, changing seat and steering wheel with his teammate.
But for Alex Zanardi, even after the marathon race, his mission is not over. Only four days later, he is eager to defend his white jersey at the Handcycle World Championship in Switzerland - an outrageous challenge, even for the man with no limits.
