Alpina at Silverstone Classic 2016 29-31 July 16

Post by Norrie » Thu May 26, 2016 11:14 pm

I know a few people have asked about an Alpina presence at this years Silverstone Classic. The BMW Car Club has indicated that they would be happy to have a separate parking area for ALPINA. Sytner Nottingham have indicated they would send a number of cars to support the event.

To date the none of the car clubs attending Silverstone have been allocated a specific location and this is determined on the number of ticket sales, this should be announced after 31 May 16 when club ticket sales close.

There is also mention of a parade lap to celebrate 100 years of BMW, however this is being organised by Goose Communications the event organiser and not the BMW Car Club, so all subject to their confirmation and policies.

Unfortunately this event clashes with Car Fest North so some of the people who organised last years ALPINA element at Silverstone will not be available.

If I get any news from the Club regarding this event I will post on here.

If anyone bought tickets using the BMW Car Club GB code, you may wish to know that the organisers Goose have decided the 100 year parade lap is now on Sunday 31st July between 1150-1305. * All parade paperwork will be sent out with the Silverstone tickets.

I now have confirmation from ALPINA Sytner that they are attending and will bring demonstrators.

I'm all booked up for the weekend just not sure at the moment if the b10 will make it
I was hoping to have the rear arch & rear of the sill sorted but it's not looking like I will have the cash to get it done till probably next year now 😔
So I need to decide on the b10 or the daily for the trip

We have booked to attend with the B10 again this year so hopefully there might be some other Alpina owners there again this year?

I have spoken to the BMW Car Club who have confirmed that a number of people with Alpina have purchased tickets, however they were unable at this stage to confirm how many.

I regret that whilst the ladies in the BMW Car Club are very nice and try to be helpful they could not tell an Alpina from a Cortina.

Goose the event organiser has yet to reveal to the Club where it will be positioned at this event.

Unfortunately numbers significantly down on last year, but not every year is 50 years of ALPINA. However this year is 100 of BMW. Too late to book to park with ALPINA now but if you are going do come and say hello.

Tickets arrived today, but nothing about a BMW parade lap? Perhaps Alpinas aren't invited..after all we only make the 'others' look bad! :D

Different parking space, trying to decide if its better than other years?

Likewise ticket arrived, parking with the BMW CarClub is allocated through the main gate and then to the left, where the old Brooklands track was and to Wellington straight.

I called the BMWCCGB, they first said it was nothing to do with them, but Silverstone, then I pointed out it was Goose who was organising it. The lady did not have an answer concerning the parade lap and said she would ask Goose and let me know. Originally the BMWCC said the lap was on Saturday, then was retracted when Goose switched it to Sunday.

Carl, I shall be at Silverstone for the 3 days. I have been putting Sytner and the Club office together and there will be a presence from Sytner there will be two cars, I believe.

I have no critical data from the Club concerning how many people with ALPINA have purchased tickets.

In terms of the parade lap, I now understand that the forms have been sent to the BMW Car club from Goose and not sent out with the tickets as previously advised. I am uncertain of the process in which the club will ascertain who wishes to carry out the parade lap and how that is being organised, but it is on the Sunday lunchtime and the majority tickets appear to have been sold for the Saturday.

Please note if you bought a ticket for Sunday using the BMWCCGB code, then the car club will contact you concerning the parade lap and issue you with the paperwork if you wish to participate.

If you used the code but are not a Club member, you will still be contacted, the reason for this is that by using the code you gave consent for you details to be shared by Goose, the organisers and they have passed on the list of purchasers of a Sunday ticket to the BMW CC GB.
