MONTH IN REVIEW
As we move into December and the last Drivers Club Monthly for 2019, we had another busy month in November.
November started with our annual Melbourne Cup Day Show & Shine at Steeples at Mornington Racecourse. We had a fantastic turnout with cars ranging from the 60s to new, mixed with some non-BMWs. After our Show & Shine, we went inside for lunch, our cup sweep and a raffle with many members heading home with prizes!
The following weekend, some of our members attended Motors at the Mansion at Pirra Homestead, Lara. All who attended had a great day and luckily managed to dodge the bad Melbourne weather.
Our November Members Meeting was held at Zagame Autobody in Westmeadows, where we were shown through their new Bespoke Division and learnt a lot about what they have in store for the future. Thank you to Jessica and the team at Zagame for such a fantastic and informative night.
This month, instead of our usual drive day, we instead parked our cars at Castlemaine and boarded a steam train for a trip to Maldon for lunch. Our members who attended had a fantastic time, we recommend experiencing it for yourself if you ever have the opportunity!
It was then time for the annual Geelong Revival. The weather was fantastic all weekend and we featured the E31 8 series on Saturday for their 30 year anniversary. Overall, we had 43 cars on display, 27 of them being E31s, including attendees from WA, Qld and even Lindsay Fox's 850csi. On Saturday night many of us were able to catch up for dinner before going back for round 2 on Sunday with a feature of E30s where we had over 35 cars on display. We even had every different body type of E30 in attendance - Baurs, coupes, convertibles, sedans, a touring and a couple of M3s.
To top the weekend off we were also given two cars from BMW Group Australia for the display, a new X4M Competition and an M4 CS. These two cars went down well with the crowds, with a lot of attention and many questions.
A special thank you to Theo Hoffs for all of his hard work and determination in organising all of the E31s to attend, it was just an incredible sight.
