November was a busy month for BMWDCM!

Our first event was the first 8 Fest Show & Shine on Melbourne Cup Day.  The miserable weather did not deter the 40+ cars from attending. Read more about our day here.

We then attended the Sandown Historics on the weekend of 10/11 November.  We had over 15 cars in attendance on each day, also winning the best car display of the event.  Read more about it here.

Our November Members Meeting was then held at Shannons Insurance.  We had a very special guest - the 530d Highway Patrol.  Thank you to Leading Senior Constable Mick McGill and Acting Sergeant Heather Allen for bringing the new car.  Read more here.

On a cold 24 November, we attended Geelong Revival.  The Revival is always a fantastic event to attend, whether you're displaying cars or just attending for a look.  Read more here.

From Geelong Revival one day, we were off to a beautiful sunny Winton the next for round 3 of the Drivers' Championship run by AROCA.  Read more here.


Welcome to all our new members, we can't wait to welcome you in person at the next event!

Don't forget to catch up with our November update from our President, Graeme Bell here.
