3. Sharknose’s 10 Anniversary in Holland – 16th to 19th May 2019

(From 385.00* Per Person)

Sharknose Goes Dutch for their 10th Anniversay

The event for classic BMWs with the characteristic sharknose!

Kos, (E24 register) has been attending the Dutch Sharknose event for a few years now and maintains we are missing out on an excellent event, “the diversity of Sharknose cars and the contacts being priceless”. 

Therefore we are making this an organised Club weekend and have asked Scenic tours to put together a package that represents both ease of travel i.e. ferry and hotel bookings (Hotel Loosdhrect by picturesque lake – with secure parking) so we can enjoy an easy drive across the water without all the hassle and to provide the best savings for a group visit.

Richard Stern has been eulogizing on his past visit to the Louwman Museum as being one of the best he has ever seen. The idea then is to fit in these two visits across the weekend.

We are aiming for a good UK turn out for our own display in the show.
