British Motor Museum hosts BMW Car Club Festival

BMW fans will be able to see over 1,000 BMWs when the British Motor Museum hosts the BMW Car Club National Festival on Sunday 11 August. Regarded as one of Europe’s largest gathering of BMW’s, the festival is organised by the BMW Car Club GB and promises to be even bigger than last year. New for 2019 is a Show Arena featuring Grandstand seating, new Display Ramp and all major activities! Vehicles on display will include M Power, ALPINA, Z’s and i’s, as well as modern, classic and modified BMW models including MINI’s.

The New Car Village’ will be showcasing the latest models from BMW, ALPINA, AC Schnitzer and MINI. Visitors will be able to see the pre-launch of the new BMW 1 series, the 3 series Touring (1st public viewing) & the fabulous new M8 together with fully accessorised M2 & M4 models.  

 
The Car Club displays will include a wide variety of vehicles from various regions and model registers. Visitors can also enjoy the popular Car Club Concours and see some of the cleanest BMW’s trying to outshine their fellow competitors with classes from Pride of Ownership through to Elite and Masterclass. Entertainment will be provided by Steve Deeks, a professional presenter and raconteur. There will also be musical entertainment from Fat Cat Brass, a modern, funky brass band who play their own quirky twist on great tunes from the last 5 decades.
 
Trade stands will offer a range of products from brakes, exhausts, tuning packages, detailing products, leather care and restoration plus accessories and goodies.  The ‘Car Club Village’ will offer a place to sit, chat and meet fellow enthusiasts. Staff and Directors from the BMW Car Club will be on hand to answer questions and enrol new members. There will also be a traditional tombola with prizes donated from the trade stands and winner’s prize draw.
 
Tom Caren, Show Manager at the British Motor Museum said “The BMW Festival attracts thousands of visitors and is a brilliant family day out.
