Events

BMW Club WA maintains a compliant COVID Safety Plan and will be running its planned Calendar of Events for 2021 with club events that can be run in accord with the Plan. Attendees at Club Events will be required to comply with the procedures for social distancing, hygiene and safety that are outlined in the Plan and are required by the WA Government at the time of each event.

Despite the impact of COVID-19, 2020 was an active and successful year for our Club with our calendar of events including multiple different activities, with something for everyone, with only a few events postponed or cancelled during our most restricted phase. We are enjoying good retention in membership and our events have been varied and enjoyable, achieving a balance between driver training, technical and social activities.

There is much to look forward to during 2021 and the Club Committee is already planning a full calendar for the upcoming year. For more information on what BMW Club WA has to offer please contact John Slade 0402 025 277, or John Oppermann (08) 9364 5663.

Reports on some of our recent events can be found on our Recent Events page.

    A Driver Training afternoon at the DRM Training Centre at the airport, that will involve members, their cars, some instruction and some solo untimed laps of the track. A maximum of 18 participants, on the track in small groups, means that every driver will get plenty of track time.

    The intent is that drivers can appreciate the performance of their cars on a closed track but their will be no pressure on drivers to compete or to go any faster than they wish.

    Car preparation is as follows: Street-legal roadworthy cars (preferably BMWs) with roadworthy tyres set at 35-40 psi (cold). All fluids topped up and no leaks. Nothing loose in the car or boot.

    Driver preparation: Long-sleeved clothing (wrist to ankle) and closed shoes (preferably joggers). Your own helmet (a proper car or bike race helmet, not a BMX helmet) if possible, though a few spare helmets may be available at the track.

    Drivers may share the use of a car with wives and partners but each driver will pay the fee and be alone in the car.

    The Club will provide soft drinks and water throughout the afternoon.

    The fee is $100 per driver and Registration is required (click on the Register button). Payments can be made as part of the registration process and must be received before the event. Wives and partners can register as Guests.

    Registration will become available in early March.

    • Guilderton (Moore River Mouth)

    A run up the coast as far as the mouth of the Moore River at Guilderton for lunch by the sea. This club event was so popular with the Guilderton Country Club last year that we've decided to do it again.

    Departing from City Beach Oval Car Park in Fred Burton Way near the shore at City Beach at 10.00 am,we'll wend our way northward up the beaches and then up the Indian Ocean Drive to Guilderton, Download the route instructions here.

    The Guilderton Country Club will be taking orders for a sit-down lunch, which starts from 12 noon. The menu is included in the route instructions. Or you can bring a BYO outdoor picnic, if you want to risk the weather. We have reserved up to 25 places for members and guests at the Country Club.

    COVID rules may apply to this one, so we need you to hit the Register button to list who's coming, including your guests (names and phone numbers)  and to tell us how many will be eating at the Country Club. Registrations will be open in early June.

    At the Dam, we will congregate again in the Cafe-On-The-Dam car park for some COVID-safe conviviality and drivers and passengers can avail themselves of the hospitality on offer there.

    This is the Facebook page for the cafe.

    It looks like they will be open for sit-down service, but they also suggest bringing chairs if you want to sit under the trees with take away, which is quite a nice idea. Note they do close at 4.00pm on Sundays so we will ensure this is compatible with the route timing.
