I have written the Regional Chairman of the BMW Car Club GB who are organising this event and asked if it is possible for ALPINA owners to park together? I do have the alpina register club flag and hope to have it flying so should be identifiable for parking.

I have now received a response there should be no problem in ALPINA parking together and I will have the flag put up. I will get there early so we can try and get parked up together. I am not sure who the marshals might be so please tell them "ALPINA".

To be honest would't have gone anyway, as I would not cross the road to see a Porker :sick

Thank you those people who have contacted me and said they are able to attend. I am sorry I cannot guarantee there will be any "porkers" , however the cafe serves Bacon rolls I am told.

This was a good meet, well organised and well attended with over 100 cars. One never knows who might turn up, so thank you to Toby Vaughan from Canterbury in his D3 bi turbo. James from Hassocks, West Sussex who has recently acquired a 3.4 Roadster S. The gent in the B3S E46 in Black, sorry did not get to you. One questionable vehicle ( as I am no expert cant say if genuine or not) Silver E28 with ALPINA wheels and ALPINA badge on rear, but no other ALPINA features.

I would 100% attend this next time, and not just because it is only 10 miles away. The parking is good private car park and secluded, marshalled at one entrance so only those with correct vehicle marques can display. Save today for a chap in a Mclaren, and the person in the Seat (as in car) was redirected. Full Cafe and bar facilities were avaialble, donations were collected by volunteers for St Catherines Hospice.

Sunny Morning, well spent.
