BMW Festival 2017 – Gaydon

For the second time this year, we were invited to be a part of the BMW E39 Club UK stand. This time the event was the BMW Festival at Gaydon, the home of the British Motor Museum.

The BMW Festival is hosted by the BMW Car Club at the British Motor Museum at Gaydon.

The E39 Club stand was once again “King of the Hill” with the cars overlooking the main show arena. There were over 40 E39 on the stand of all different models, Alpina, M5, Pre-facelift, Touring and everything you can think of. In all there were over 45 E39 on the stand. It must have been the biggest club turn out behind the host club.

There were many clubs in attendance as well as a compere through out the day along with an Oom-pah band. A number of trade stands kept our wallets open. Attendees were also free to walk around the Motor Museum and Historical Collection buildings.

The weather turned out great and we had a fantastic day out. I have to say that I love going to the shows and being a part of the club stand. It’s great to meet and put faces to the people we talk to on the club Facebook group and always a good opportunity to catch up, swap stories on the trials of E39 ownership, get some advise or help and maybe even pick up a bargain from a club member.

So looking forward to the show season next year and hope to get to more meets and shows, including Vanity which I missed out on this year.

To Radu and the club admins and mods, Thank you very much for all that you do and putting together the club stands. It is very much appreciated.
