BMW Sommerfest 2023 – Devon Region
BMW Sommerfest 2023 is to be held at Oulton Park Circuit on Saturday 3rd June 2023.
The show will be based in the circuit’s infield, offering clear views over the track and the ongoing racing. At Oulton the paddock and cafeteria are also in the infield, and all areas are closely connected together giving a more ‘compact’ feel than Donington. We will also be making use of the Fogarty Moss Conference and Meeting Complex, providing an indoor location for the Club Office, Merchandise, Hospitality and display cars, all with clear views over the race track. Along with the nearby Chequers Restaurant building this gives us a show location that can cope with unpredictable weather.
The Club is planning a Friday evening event for members and racers in the Chequers Restaurant and Bar. The main part of the show will be on the Saturday, featuring car displays, traders, BMW Car Club GB hospitality, food vendors, and races on track throughout the day. A number of the 750MC championships will be in attendance including Alfa Romeo, Club Enduro, Sport Specials, Sports 100 FT Cup 200 and of course BMW Car Club Racing.
Tickets are not yet on sale, but it is good to start building enthusiasm for the event.
The Club will be looking for help with set-up, marshalling and set-down on the day. This will take a few hours, and in return we are planning to provide free entry for volunteers. If you are interested in helping, please contact me via email@example.com and I will co-ordinate with Club Office.
Parking – the plan is for cars to be parked according to the decade in which the model was first released. There is an option for us to have a dedicated area so that all Devon members can park together. To do this, we need to be able to provide a minimum of 10 cars. If you are going to be attending and would like to take up this option, could you please let me know as soon as possible. I will collate the responses and advise Club Office accordingly.
