National BMW Festival to celebrate 100 years of BMW's!‏

Posted on


Hundreds of BMWs will descend on the British Motor Museum when it hosts the annual BMW Car Club National Festival on Sunday 14th August. The event, which is Europe’s largest gathering of BMW’s, will celebrate 100 years of BMW and promises to be even bigger and better than before. Last year there were over 800 vehicles on display and this year they hope to double it, with models including M Power, Alpina, ZED, as well as modern, classic and modified models plus MINI’s will take part in the popular show.

The focal point of the event will be the driving arena, where there will be a master of ceremonies, Steve Deeks. There will be speeches by the regional chairs, presentations of the concours and competition winners as well as live music entertainment. Other activities will include a drifiting track, laser shooting, mini tanks, radio controlled cars, a wheel changing competition, show and shine competition, tombola, lots of trade stands and a special display of 100 cars forming the figure ‘100’ to be photographed from the air.

Representatives from insurance companies will be on hand as well as staff from the BMW Car Club to answer questions and enrol new members. There will also be the club’s register and regional displays, all taking place in and around the British Motor Museum.

Tom Caren, Show Manager for the British Motor Museum stated “The BMW Festival is a fantastic family day out. To mark this special anniversary year we will be organising plenty of additional activities to entertain visitors. Seeing so many BMW’s on display from different decades is a brilliant spectacle to see!”.

Tickets cost £17 for adults, £9 for children (under 5’s are free) and £45 for a family. Entry to the Museum is also included in the ticket price. Discounted tickets are available in advance from the BMW Car Club Office on 01970 267 989 or
