Events

BMW Club WA has now developed a COVID Safety Plan and will be recommencing its planned Calendar of Events with club events that can be run in accord with the Plan. Attendees at Club Events will be required to comply with the procedures for social distancing, hygiene and safety that are outlined in the Plan.

2019 was an active and successful year for our Club with our calendar of events including multiple different activities, with something for everyone. We are enjoying good retention in membership and our events have been varied and enjoyable, achieving a balance between driver training, technical and social activities.

There is much to look forward to during 2020, the Club Committee is already planning a full calendar for the upcoming year, for more information on what the BMW Club WA has to offer please contact John Slade 0402 025 277, or John Oppermann (08) 9364 5663.

Reports on some of our recent events can be found on our Recent Events page. 



Upcoming events

    • 12 Jul 2020
    • 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM (UTC+08:00)
    • Peel Estate Winery, Karnup
    Register

    Originally planned for warmer, pre-COVID times, our run to Peel Estate Winery takes on the role of us doing our bit to help local tourism organisations re-establish their business now that restrictions have started to lift. And this one has a little risk attached - it might rain on our picnic so brollies might be necessary! But it could be fun too.

    Starting at Auto Classic in Vic Park at 10.00 am, we'll depart by 10.30 am on a slightly indirect route to arrive at Peel Estate by 12 noon. Bring your own picnic for lunch, including tables and chairs, picnic rugs, etc., as well as your favourite picnic foods. Non-alcoholic refreshments are your own to bring but the winery is licensed and trusts you will purchase your wine for lunch from them.

    Wine tastings and purchases at the cellar door are possible again, though tastings are seated only, in groups of up to 10 tasters, and cost $5 This is refunded when you purchase. If you would like to participate in a wine tasting, click on the Wine Tasting button in the Registration process and we'll book a place for you.

    • 1:00 PM - 5:00 PM (UTC+08:00)
    • Darling Ranges
    • 25
    Register

    Congregate at a public car park in Kelmscott by 1.00 pm (exact location to be advertised shortly), then proceed on a BMW Club Drive to the Serpentine Dam, using a driving route provided on the day that takes us the scenic way to the Dam.

    At the Dam, we will congregate again in the Cafe-On-The-Dam car park for some COVID-safe conviviality and drivers and passengers can avail themselves of the hospitality on offer there.

    This is the Facebook page for the cafe.

    It looks like they will be open for sit-down service, but they also suggest bringing chairs if you want to sit under the trees with take away, which is quite a nice idea. Note they do close at 4.00pm on Sundays so we will ensure this is compatible with the route timing.

    Note that the Club's COVID Safety Plan and our Code of Conduct for Club Runs will be in operation throughout the event.

    You will need to Register online on the Events Page for this event.

    • 01 Aug 2020
    • 9:30 AM - 12:00 PM (UTC+08:00)
    • 17 Luisini Drive, Wangara

    An in depth look at BMW’s world famous technology and expertise thanks to our friends at Westcoast BMW. Find out about current developments and innovations from their Aftersales Manager, Master Technician and specialist Parts Team.

    BMW dynamic driving modes will be the focus of this year's forum.

    Please Note: Following the easing of restrictions by State Government, we have regrouped with our sponsor and will provide further information regarding the proposed event date which we have rescheduled to 01 August, due to BMW's work restrictions.

    • 15 Aug 2020
    • 11:30 AM - 4:00 PM (UTC+08:00)
    • DRM Facility, Grogan Road, Perth Airport
    • 1
    Register

    A Driver Training afternoon at the DRM Training Centre at the airport, that will involve members, their cars, some instruction and some solo untimed laps of the track. A maximum of 20 participants, on the track in small groups, means that every driver will get plenty of track time.

    The intent is that drivers can appreciate the performance of their cars on a closed track but their will be no pressure on drivers to compete or to go any faster than they wish.

    Car preparation is as follows: Street-legal roadworthy cars (preferably BMWs) with roadworthy tyres set at 35-40 psi (cold). All fluids topped up and no leaks. Nothing loose in the car or boot.

    Driver preparation: Long-sleeved clothing (wrist to ankle) and closed shoes (preferably joggers). Your own helmet (a proper car or bike race helmet, not a BMX helmet) if possible, though a few spare helmets may be available at the track.

    Drivers may share the use of a car with wives and partners but each driver will pay the fee and be alone in the car.

    The Club will provide soft drinks and water throughout the afternoon.

    The fee is $150 per driver and Registration is required (click on the Register button). Payments can be made as part of the registration process and must be received before the event. Wives and partners can register as Guests.
    • 16 Aug 2020
    • 9:30 AM - 5:00 PM (UTC+08:00)
    • Cervantes, Pinnacles National Park

    A longer run to Cervantes, up West Coast Drive, for lunch at the beachside cafe there, before doubling back to Pinnacles National Park, to see the visitor centre and the famous limestone pinnacle formations in the afternoon.

    The early winter date means it won't be too hot and, weather willing, the early dusk will allow some some serious photographic opportunities for those who want to stay long enough to see the sun go down over the pinnacles.

    Drivers should note that the best viewing of the pinnacles is available by driving off the bitumen and onto the sand track that meanders through the formations. No BMWs have ever been harmed during this manoeuvre.

    • 13 Sep 2020
    • 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM (UTC+08:00)
    • York, WA

    The York Motor Show is on Sunday 13 September and anything with an engine is invited. BMWs qualify.

    We'll meet at Stirling Gardens in Guildford at 9.00 am on a sparkling spring day, for a 9.30 am departure on a Club convoy run to the historic town of York.

    This year the theme is Holdens versus Fords but BMWs are welcome and we'll have a parking space allocated. Prizes are being awarded for "People's Choice" and "Best Under Bonnet" and food and drink vendors will be there, or you can bring your own picnic.

    More details on the RSVP or Registration requirements closer to the time.


    • 16 Sep 2020
