I know there were 20 ALPINA cars on display in the ALP section in 2017 and a number of others spread around. However, what will encourage or discourage you from attending in 2018?

Went twice a few years agonand to be totally honest, apart from meeting up with Alpina friends and BMW owners and a visit around the museum it was not the most exciting event I had ever been to. At one time you could go around the Jag/Land Rover test track and that was fun but once that was stopped..

To be honest Norrie, I am fed up with Gaydon, apart from meeting fellow Alpina enthusiasts the venue holds no interest for me to travel 360 miles.
You can only go around the museum so many times.

I have to say the comments echo my feeling, I do like to catch up with people from the Club and that is the key driver for me.

I have written to the Club and asking for an indication on what will be different that might attract those who have 'done it all before'. We shall see if any response.

it appears there will be limited space at Gaydon 2018 and that priority is being given to those who are club members. I guess if someone wants to go they should get a ticket and display pass for ALPINA as soon as possible.
