BMWCCGB - Regional Meet - Kent 6/6/21

Post by BetterCallJimmy » Thu May 13, 2021 2:31 pm

I wonder who here (if anyone) has attended any Kent regional meets organised by the BMW Car Club GB.

I am planning to go the the next one if anyone is interested. It would be nice to see a few Alpinas.

Have been to a few of the Kent regional meets, but not to the George, only 15 miles from me.
Hopefully can make it, parking could be interesting :D

I have been to one or two. The chap Larry Tampkins who organises them is a nice fella. We went to a Gin Distillery in Chatham was interesting. I am uncertain how strictly its monitored by the general rule is that any BMWCCGB member can attend any event anywhere in UK. However, in the 10 years plus I have been a member no one has ever asked me to prove it or challenged me. The only time they ever asked to prove membership is at voting at their AGM.

Therefore on that basis if one wants to attend, do so in my view.
E65 B7 4.4 V8 supercharged No 106 (1 of 7 in UK) - purely for pleasure
E 39 523i for winter and track day - leave it anywhere
E92 325i - written off by X5 I was not driving!
E92 335D Twin Turbo - sold to Sytner Alpina
E 60 - 525D new - sold to Cooper BMW
E 60 - 530D new - sold at auction
E 39 - 520i new - sold at auction
E 30 - 316i new Touring - sold at auction

Thanks for this! I am a member for the first year so I’m really looking forward to getting more involved and go to various events. This seems to be a good one to get started on.
