Hi members

How is it already October? Winter is long gone and now we are past the Spring solstice - the days are longer than the nights and soon enough we will be able to get out and enjoy the beautiful Spring weather!

September started with our usual members meeting, where Jo and Graeme gave a presentation on preparing for a motorsport event.  We had quite a few members attend on the night with many questions asked.  Just talking about getting on track is making us excited for the day when we can!  if you missed the presentation but would like to view it in your own time, we've uploaded it to the website here.


On 22 September we then held a very special members only meeting, where Eva Priller from BMW took us on a tour of BMW Classic in Munich.  It was amazing to see all of the cars, the archive room, cafe and workshop.  We'd like to give a very special thank you to Eva for the tour.  Next time you're in Munich, make sure visiting BMW Classic is at the top of your to do list! 


Club Permits 
VicRoads have recently made some changes to the Club Permit Scheme.  The biggest change is that new registrations will include an additional fee for number plates. You can read more about the update by clicking here


As we get to a hopeful end to Stage 4 restrictions, we hope to see you all very soon.  Please reach out if there is anything we can do to help you, or feel free to suggest some events you'd like to see once we're able! 


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!
