What an absolutely fantastic weekend! Great company, weather and cars. Stayed up until 3am Saturday night, up again just a few very uncomfortable hours (M3s aren't built for a good nights sleep apparently). Big thanks to everyone who came, it wouldn't have been such a success without you. Thanks to Ray for helping organise behind the scenes with food and on here, Sam for bringing the BBQ, Mike for being the stand in chef because Ady turned up late missing a cylinder lol and George for helping with the stand organisation. I really am proud of how well it went and our club as a whole!

Definitely one for next year! Biggest and best UK show. Probably should get a tent next year though lol.

Absolutely brilliant............you smashed it there Matt

Such a good weekend I didn't want it to end!! Thanks to everyone that made the effort and came along it means a great deal to me. The stand was tight but we got everyone in eventually!!

Not been for a couple of years and it certainly has got a whole load better. More food and trade stands and a whole load more clubs/cars

Tired and sunburnt but what a great weekend, thanks to Matt and Ray for the organising and to all that attended and made is such good fun.
The show was well attended by lots of clubs and it was good to see others that I know from outside BMWE, definitely one for the calender next year. :thumbup:

Tarmac was completely sold out! Back to the old days for BMW Show where it's really busy! Plenty to see, loads of different clubs. Tbh I didn't actually make it all the way around!
