Hi members

July started out with us feeling pretty positive about the month ahead and the events we had planned.

Our first event of the month was Round 5 of our Yokohama/Traction Tyres Drivers Championship and our Cross Border Challenge on 4 July with our friends and fellow BMW club members from NSW at Winton. 

The day started very cold but the sun came out and we all had a great day.  It was so good to see our NSW friends and many of our Victorian members after so long.


Our July members meeting was held (virtually) at Traction Tyres in Rowville.  Thank you to Andrew for an amazing presentation, I think we all learnt a lot more about tyres and the new Yokohama AO52 high performance tyre in particular. 

Remember if you are after anything tyre or wheel related, mention you are a BMWDCM member and they will look after you.


It was just a couple of days later that Metropolitan Melbourne and Mitchell Shire went back into stage 3 restrictions.  This meant we had to cancel or postpone all of our future in person events.  


Club Permit Scheme
Very soon you will be able to pay your club permit renewal online instead of going in to a VicRoads office or posting your renewal to them.  If you have a MyVicRoads account, you should login to see if your club plates have been linked.  We know that some people have had their plates linked already, but not everyone has.

It is important to remember that you will still need to get our signature prior to renewing your permit, but it will certainly make it easier to pay for your renewal. 

There are also some changes to the way Club Permits will be issued coming in October, we'll be in touch with those changes a little closer to the time.


If you require assistance from Jo Mawson or Graeme Bell during this time, please do not phone the Bell Motorsport phone number (03 5979 1599).  Please 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.


Our August Members Meeting will be held virtually on Monday, 3 August at 7.30pm, with a virtual tour of the auction rooms at Shannons.  

We've also got a virtual event with Jay Leno's Garage on Tuesday, 18 August at 7.30pm 

Unfortunately we can't give too many details on other upcoming events right now.  Be sure to keep an eye on our calendar for when we can resume events.
