Drivers Club Monthly | Edition 25 | June 2020

In May we held our virtual members meeting with a remote tour around club sponsor, Creative Custom Cars. Alan How gave us an amazing tour of the projects they have there at the moment. 

We have been working on future events and preparing for our new normal.  As we start getting out and about again we recommend you download the Covid-Safe App and have it working on your phone.  If someone who attends one of our events becomes unwell, it will be much easier to follow up with you.

We are very happy to let you know that our second edition of idrive is currently at the printers and will be at your doorstep very soon!

Unfortunately due to COVID-19, there were some delays but we're so excited to share idrive with you.

BMWDCM are proud supporters of the Blue Ribbon Foundation.  If you would also like to support the Blue Ribbon Foundation, click here to purchase your own bear or badge.

If you require assistance from Jo or Graeme during this time, please do not phone the Bell Motorsport phone number (03 5979 1599) and instead phone Jo on 0412 661 900.


Welcome to our new members, we look forward to seeing you at an event soon!

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


Finally, the good news we have all been waiting for, restrictions are starting to ease and we can start to leave our homes.

Here's what we've got planned for June:

  • Tuesday, 2 June
    Virtual Members Meeting | Becoming a Motorsport Official 
    For our June members meeting we will be joined by several heads from different sectors of motorsport officialling, such as Victorian Flag Marshalling, Fire and Rescue, Team Medical, scrutineering, sector marshalling, off road rallying, communications and administration.

    If you are a keen motorsport enthusiast and have never been able to get on the track, being an official may just be up your alley.  Being a Motorsport Australia official will give you access to all types of motorsport, from grass roots to Supercars and F1.

  • Monday, 8 June (Queen's Birthday Holiday)
    Social Drive to Mount Macedon
    Our first meet-up and drive event since COVID-19 put us all in lockdown!  This will just be a drive as a club to Mount Macedon.  You will be able to purchase your own lunch from Top of The Range Tea Rooms.
  • Sunday, 14 June
    Sandown Driver Training and Come & Try Day 
    We are very excited to get back on track again!  Unfortunately this event sold out within the first couple of days of releasing entries.  There is a waitlist so if you are interested, be sure to register.  Please note we can't have spectators at this event due to COVID-19 restrictions.

Be sure to keep an eye on our calendar for more events as they become available. 


We will be needing help for the upcoming Sandown Driver Training and Come & Try day.  If you are interested in helping please email Jo.


This month we're kicking off our feature member's car of the month..  We had so many interesting submissions we thought we'd kick off with a motorbike!  To read all about John's 1959 R69 click here
