Sandown Historics

29 Oct 2019 3:55 PM | Anonymous

After a cold and wet start to the day it was great to be part of our club display at this years 2019 Historic Sandown event. Meeting up beforehand with the club gave enough time to say hello and admire each other's BMWs, excellent turn out of cars and friendly people!

We then moved onto the grounds to a great spot trackside, perfect to see and hear all the action on the main straight and show off our pride and joy.

As the rain cleared on and off the track the action really revved up, the sounds, sights and smell's didn't disappoint! Everything from roaring V8's, Open wheelers, Touring cars, Sports sedans, Mighty Mini's, Turbo's and Rotary's and more!

A very friendly atmosphere all round with access to all sorts of interesting and exotic cars and the people involved with them made for many great chats around the pits and open area's throughout the day.

To see and hear many of these 'old racers' in action and being part of our club display made for an intoxicating day, I would highly recommend checking out this event or any other BMWDCM events for that matter....and to top it off my BMW took out a class trophy for best on display!

A big thankyou to Graeme Bell for his hard work in challenging weather, and for organising our club display and making BMWDCM presence known!

The Sandown historics event was a lot of fun.

We had a great view of the races at the BMW display area and especially of the pits, this was all visible from the leathers of my own car.  We could see and listen to all of the old race cars that entered the track before the race which was great.

A lot of cars were on display at the event, and most importantly a great range of BMW’s from old to new. I loved spending time with other BMW enthusiasts and seeing all the people come together for a common passion.  I got to know some more of our members and got some great tips and information about my E36, which was really helpful and fun to learn. 

I am excited for the next Sprint day, when I can get my car on to the track and unleash some pure BMW horsepower. 

Thanks for the invite to put my car on display, I was very proud, and we had a great day.
