BMW National event 2017 13th Aug 17

Post by Norrie » Fri Jun 16, 2017 10:24 am

Yes, there is an ALPINA section at the National Event. If you want to buy a ticket you can via the BMW Car Club office 01970 267989 10-4pm Mon to Fri.

The event the day before is for BMW Car Club members only and is a concours at Ettington Chase Hotel. There is also a dinner in the evening for members if they wish to pay for it.

When I enquired about 2 weeks ago not one person had bought a ticket for the ALPINA section, however advanced ticket sales end 31st July 17. If booking important to state which section you wish to park with and a hanging display indicator will be issued with a ticket.

Failure to do so may result in being placed in public car park.

I assume you mean the one at Hatton? It's this Wednesday so I am not getting my car back from Sytners until the weekend pending final checks so can't make this week.
