Wessex Region


Welcome to the Wessex Region.  We cover a large area stretching from Dorset to West Sussex, including Wiltshire, Berkshire, Surrey, Hampshire and the Isle of Wight. We have sub-divided the Region into three areas and hold separate club nights each month in the Bournemouth Area (managed by Eric Thompson), the Basingstoke Area (managed by Tim Maltby) and the Alton Area (managed by Tim Maltby).  Our goal is to minimise the distances that members have to travel but everyone is welcome at all our events and we actively encourage joint meetings.

We have a great variety of members’ cars, covering a wide range of BMW models and ages, but we all share the same passion for the brand.    Throughout the year Wessex runs a number of driving and social events and attends regional and national car shows.  We are a very friendly group and are always very keen to welcome new members.

It is very easy to keep up to date with Wessex events.  Everything is posted on the Region website and we run a WhatsApp group that is notified when there are any changes.  We also run a Facebook page: BMW Car Club Wessex Bournemouth
