Count me in, Had a good time last year, and from what I read in the BMW CC magazine, they are putting on more activities this year..

You do NOT have to be a member but it will cost £12.50 instead of £10.00 for the ticket.

Don't forget to ask for an E24 display pass when you book your ticket.

Hi Chaps
Great, tickets have arrived, and I have display passes for myself and my firend Roger,
Any advise on what time to arrive ?
Also I will be driving up the M40, I think last year some-one organised a meet up at a service station ?

regards

Harry, Far fewer will be attending this year. Reasons for this are various and the Car Club are promising a much better event.
However....... Ron & I have been asked to be there early to help (if needed) with Marshalling. So perhaps it will not be worthwhile trying to meet up.
Thoughts anybody else?
Regards, John Rogers

Admission is from 8.00am. There will be plenty of space for E24's so no need to rush but queue can be lengthy at main time, say 9 ish.

Great turnout and the earliest known UK M635 - #004. I counted 26 cars scattered around the site (23 in our line-up and another 3 in the regional areas).

No doubt we will get a load of pics posted.

Thanks to all who turned up and it was good to see old friends and make some new ones.

Brucey was busy all day.

He reported that no less than 4 owners had asked him about problems with boot (trunk) springs. See earlier image of his special tool.

Hi Chaps
I would like to apologise for my appalling bad taste, but I am not going to.
I will apologise to Ron and Brucey, poor guys don’t see to get a minute without answering some-ones questions !
I had a good day out and it was great to meet every-one.

I also forgot to take my camera, so if any one has more pics..
thanks
Harry

Had a great day and really good to put some faces to names. Our line looked fantastic and I was especially grateful for the warm welcome I received as a new E24 owner from Brucey, Ron and John.

My only regret is that I didn't get chance to chat much as my 2yr old Stan needed entertaining! Think I'll come on my own next time lol :-)
