Following the huge success of the 2012 Silverstone Classic and Z Fest the BMW Car Club is once again attending the event in July this year (26th to the 28th).
Last year we held the "Z" fest, this year we are extending it to cover both Z's and also now MPower cars, but this does not mean that you can't come along if you don't own either an M or a Z, we want as many BMW's on display as possible, we want to give the organisers a headache wondering how on earth they are going to accommodate us all!
The organisers have given us a parade lap on the Saturday evening between about 6pm and 7pm for the MPower and Z cars, it should be quite a spectacle!
All Club members and potential members are welcome to join us on the club's stand and we encourage you all to buy your tickets early as this is the cheapest option. The Silverstone Classic booking office has now opened and we have a club discount code (C13225, http://silverstoneclassic.seetickets...circuit/674819) you’ll need to use this code if you want to display with the BMW Car Club and take part in the parade lap. Right now you can get the tickets on a buy-one-get-one-free basis but that ends at the end of May (although it’s cheaper to get the tickets before the end of March).
As well as the display area and parade lap we have also organised a hotel reasonably close by at Crick and will be cruising in on the Saturday morning to a dedicated BMW Car Club entrance (this entrance is for us to use on all three days), the hotel details can be found here:
Rugby-Northampton M1, Jct.18 Hotel in Northampton, England | Holiday Inn
This hotel has been nominated as the MPower hotel (we have other hotels for the Z’s) but anyone can use the links if you are coming along and joining us on the display. The room rates depend on the room standard chosen, standard rooms are £40 per night and the executive rooms are £56 per night both without breakfast. If you book a breakfast online at the time of booking your room it is £10 per person per night, space is limited so book early. We will also have an option for bacon butty and coffee/tea on the Saturday morning for a small fee.
If you have questions about the hotels please email firstname.lastname@example.org who will respond as soon as possible, we will then also post relevant Questions and Answers if necessary.
We would welcome and encourage anyone travelling in to the event on the Saturday to join us for the cruise in, so please arrive at the hotel in plenty of time (details of times to follow later) so that you can also have a bacon butty and a drink while you converse with other like-minded enthusiasts before the cruise to the track.

Hopefully we'll see you all there!
