Oregonians no longer need to go to North to LeMay or South to the Peterson to see a world-class automobile museum.
On May 23 at 11am BMW CCA Oregon members will be among the first to experience World of Speed, the new local mecca of motorsports. Located in Wilsonville, Oregon and scheduled to open in late April, World of Speed is a new kind of educational experiential motorsports exposition using historic racecars and motorcycles to tell the story of America’s love affair with the automobile and leadership role in world motorsports.
It encompasses many aspects of motorsports including drag racing and road racing, land speed racing, motorcycle racing, as well as open wheel and NASCAR.
Through interactive exhibits and hands-on activities, World of Speed offers visitors a behindthe-scenes view of the world of racing. Programming and activities will expose young people to the opportunities available in the auto industry, and to help educate them to enter the workforce or advance to specialized education. For example, Ford Motor Company recently donated a Mustang to World of Speed that will be reconfigured into a hands-on display to showcase how a car is constructed, what materials are used and how materials are recycled. A real Indy car, NASCAR stock car, and vintage Lotus will function as simulators for fans of all ages.
