Driver Track Day - August 2020

Twenty Club Members brought a wide range of their favourite BMWs to the DRMC facility at Perth Airport for four hours of sheer driving pleasure on a day where the weather threatened to provide us with a wet track experience but held off long enough for everyone to go home with a zillion dry track laps racked up and only a couple of drops of rain on the windscreen right at the end. DRMC Principal Kim Ledger gave us some early track craft advice and showed us the lines, turn-in and braking points for the track and then we were full on in our pursuit of greater knowledge of how to make best use of the capabilities of our BMs.

Of course, we had M2s, M3s, M4s and M5s in evidence, but we also had a 650i, various 3 Series, a Z4 coupe, an X5, two E30 325i's, a competition-spec 135i and the world's fastest 320i Touring. Well, maybe not, but Stuart drove it like he was defending the title.

Everyone soon got the hang of the queuing system and the marshall worked hard all day to keep the track full of BMWs so that everyone got their money's worth of track time.











One of the E30s had a starter motor issue that was solved by using push starts to get rolling, but otherwise all vehicles finished the day looking as good as they did at the start. A couple of cones in the chicane got moved around a bit during the day but only one minor off-track incident was observed and all drivers were to be congratulated for their skills on the track. 

We expect to organise another of these events shortly, so stay tuned for details. It could be a sellout. In the meantime, check out the slide show above for some of the photos, taken on the day by Robert Bowe.



The Guilderton Tour

Twenty-five Club Members, partners and friends went to the Mouth of the Moore River for one of our first post-lockdown events and landed at the Guilderton Country Club for lunch and collegiality. More to report shortly but it's worth posting the accompanying photo now - we were expected and welcomed at the Country Club and the weather turned out to be (just) fine for top-down convertibles.



BMW Club WA (Inc) 2019 Show'N'Shine

Once again the Club held its annual display of members' BMWs, together with those of other BMW enthusiasts, under the shade of the peppermint trees at Manners Hill Park on a sunny but cool spring day. Almost 70 cars were on display and 14 of them went up for judging in the tent to compete for the prizes on offer.

As ever, the judges had their work cut out separating the good from the very good and the point scores were very close. In the end, the E28 528i of John C had a narrow victory (again) to win Best in Show from John S's E46 M3 Convertible and Kelvin B's E46 3 Series Coupe.

Meanwhile, back in the paddock, hundreds of passers-by were admiring and voting on all the BMWs on display and chose Wayne H's classic E24 635CSi as the People's Choice. There must be something about shiny red cars.

Thanks go to BMW Australia, Westcoast BMW and AutoFX for the support to once again make it a great day for Club members.

Some of the fantastic examples of Club members' BMWs can be seen below, and in the slide shows above.
